#896 The Last Flight of Noah’s Ark (1980)

As I’ve excluded all the kids only movies from this project, I was on the verge whether The Last Flight of Noah’s Ark should be here. This Disney Productions’ movie is made in the same vein as the company’s other whole family adventures, like Herbie The Love Bug series, Blackbeard’s Ghost and The Absent-Minded Professor, and as such, the movie’s style feels outdated for a 1980 film.

Given all the legacy, the movie fares surprisingly well despite its strong whiff from the past. The exotic Gilligan’s Island style setting proofs to be an atmospheric one and Elliot Gould manages to keep the show running as the average Joe Pilot; grumpy but with a heart of gold.

The Last Flight of Noah’s Ark is predictable, uninspired and an outdated product and I can’t really point out much of the things I like here. But, it could be due my non-existing interest or the overall low expectations that I ended up enjoying the movie a bit more than it actually deserves.
