A superb film for kids and adults
8 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film in many years, but when it was released I recorded it off of HBO for my personal viewing. After my kids, then 2 and 4 watched it with me they were hooked. They loved the lions and asked me many questions about them. They watched the tape so many times, that I swear you could've seen through it.

As for me, I though Glynis OConnor was hot. She never looked more attractive than she did in this film. The story and the scenery were good too. I definitely recommend this film as a must see and if you can find it, and a video library addition. You never know when you'll have some kids over who have seen everything else worth watching.
