Tigers, lions, panthers
21 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Polar bears, rhinos, elephants. It doesn't matter which animal you choose, this title makes no sense. This looks like a TV movie and I was surprised to find that it isn't. The story centres around a racecourse and some missing money and unfortunately, it's pretty boring. There is nothing too convincing about any of it especially when Christopher George (Steve) starts throwing around Alan Hale Jr (Whitehorn). I don't think so!

Badger by the belly, cat by the coccyx, hippo by the hairline…..like I said, this film is boring so there's nothing much to say about it. Why not spend time making up alternate titles for it? Remember that the title must bear absolutely no relevance to the film and keep to the animal theme.
