|Chains of Gold 1991 R, 95 min.|

Cast: John Travolta, Marilu Henner, Joey Lawrence, Bernie Casey, Hector Elizondo, Benjamin Bratt, Ramon Franco, Conchata Ferrell, Raphael Rey Gomez, Tammy Lauren
Although originally made for theatrical release, this film did not see the light of day for two years–on TV. Social worker Scott (John Travolta)–a recovering alcoholic and responsible for his son's death in a car accident–has a chance to atone for his mistake when he sets out to rescue a teen from a drug ring. Another weak Travolta entry.

This animated Disney flick follows a kitten, Oliver (voice of Joey Lawrence) as he experiences adventures in the tough streets of New York. Though OK for the young ones, the gangster-ridden story may be a little much for the youngest ones. Loosely based on Dickens' "Oliver Twist."
