Storyline

When a native village is apparently terrorized by a Lion, the local sergeant enlists the help of a veterinarian working at a nearby animal study center. It is soon discovered that the Lion has a unique problem, it has double vision due to the fact that it is cross eyed and therefore cannot hunt. The Lion is taken back to the study center and is soon adopted by the vet's daughter. Meanwhile, a dangerous criminal is planning to capture young Gorillas and sell them on the black market...

Just boring and silly
22 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty bad family film about a research group in the jungle studying animal behavior. They then come across a cross-eyed lion and make an attempt to cure him. Then there's some subplot about bad guys doing something (I was dozing off). And there's truly dreadful "comic" relief by Richard Haydn. Add bad acting and a script that meanders all over the place. By the way Clarence has very little to do with this movie. I almost turned it off when someone actually started singing "Kumbiya"!

This gets a three because Betsy Drake (in her last film--so far) was actually quite charming and there was some beautiful animal footage (although some was obviously stock footage). Little kids who like animals might go for this--it's pretty deadly for anyone else.
