Great Film
12 June 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Cannot believe this film is rated so low. I really enjoyed it and would like to see it back in circulation.Glynnis O'Conner and Michael York do and excellent job. I liked this better than the real sappy Born Free. The Lion cubs are as cute as it gets.
