Weak adult animation of limited curiosity value
8 June 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is a curious little film that was released on video in England as JUNGLE BURGER. It's pretty much like most pre-South Park adult animations, in that the novelty value of seeing cute cartoon characters doing naughty things soon wears off and you're left with a very dull film indeed. The voices (redubbed by some American comedians, including Christopher Guest of Spinal Tap fame and the late John Belushi) are poorly synchronized with the animation, the script is very weak and it's obviously been heavily edited as the plot makes little or no sense! Some of the music - particularly the funky 'marching' theme heard over the end credits - is surprisingly good, but on the whole this isn't worth seeing. It was probably funnier in its country of origin, but I doubt it.
