Very clever idea, acted superbly, and good effects
23 January 2003 | by (Shefford, Beds, England) – See all my reviews

A great idea for a film, a very good cast well acted. The scenery and locations were done well and the special effects for the time were stunning, especially in Animal Heaven. A comfortable funny feel good film you can watch again and again. It would not have been the same if it had been in colour. One for the DVD / Video collection if you could get hold of it.
