Amazing work with wild animals
23 November 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie dubbed in German in 1984 and thought it was incredible how lions were used in the movie. The plot, though simple, is interesting which makes the movie enjoyable for a wide audience. The writers did a good job in keeping the humor light. Kudos go to the lead characters in the movie, supposedly some of whom got injured in the filming.
