BBFC advice: Contains mild bad language, crude references, adventure action and some suggestive comments

With the kids at home and the tensions of do-it-yourself schooling, there are demands for some family downtime.
So, for the six to 12-year-olds a couple of hours with Finding 'Ohana might just tick the box.
This is Indiana Jones-lite - a treasure hunt which has a fair few dramatic moments but doesn't set out to scare.
And it has a bit of a cultural and ecological message for the youngsters.
Jude Weng's film has a fairly basic plot - a Hawaiian grandfather (Branscombe Richmond) is ailing and his bills are piling up so his daughter (Kelly Hu) uproots her New Yorker children, Ioane (Alex Aiono) and Pili (Kea Peahu).
This is particularly bad news for Pili because she has just won a week in an adventure summer camp.
And the mood is dampened further when they arrive because their grandad is a grouch, to put it mildly.
Nevertheless, Pili is an enthusiastic 12-year-old who dreams of treasure and is beyond excited when she finds a book about hidden booty on the island.
Thus, she ignores all instructions from her sensible mum and grumpy grandad and sets off in search of glory accompanied by a new friend (Owen Vaccaro).
They take far too many risks and, when they get into bother, are pleased to receive help from Ioane and his potential love interest (Lindsay Watson).
They go deep into a dormant volcano in search of the sailors' treasure which they hope will mean grandad can pay his long-overdue bills.
However, there is many a trap along the route as well as the potential repercussions of offending the island spirits.
Yep, the traditions of the Hawaiians are laid on as thick as a bowl of poi - traditional banana and pineapple dessert.
And, as soon as one of the New Yorkers misstep, the Hawaiians chuck in a lecture about the importance of the islanders' cherished way of life.
So, not only do we have a fine 'Ohana (family) adventure but there is also a dollop of culture.
That might make parents feel slightly better if their offspring miss a couple of home lockdown lessons for this movie.

Did you know? From pirates burying treasure in mountainside caves to the burial site of King Kamehameha, there are at least ten stories of hidden riches buried across the Hawaiian Islands.

The final word. Lindsay Watson: "It’s not always perfect, it’s not always pretty, but what matters at the end of the day is your family. Whether it be blood-related or not, you have to put in the work to make it a successful relationship. And that’s what Finding 'Ohana does…but we see through this film that if you talk and work together, that you guys can find commonality somewhere that leads to happiness.” The Illuminerdi
