Storyline

As a baby, Bobo gets separated from his family during a camping trip. After being raised by wild dogs for twenty years, Bobo is discovered by animal researcher Penny, who brings him back to his family and attempts to teach Bobo how to readjust to life with humans. While his mother is overjoyed to see him again, Bobo's older brother Henry is more worried about losing his share of the inheritance. As Bobo progresses with Penny's lessons, Henry plots to have him eliminated. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Great Movie
17 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie i strongly suggest that you pick it up if you get the chance it is exactly what a movie should be an escape from reality do not listen to all the people badmouthing it the only reason they do so is because they either have no sense of humor or they think that the only thing that people should watch is social commentaries and reality shows i personally think that movies need to go back to this state where it was about the movie itself and not just the special effects i think it is sad that most modern day movies rely only on the eye candy, this movie is a great movie to sit down in front of and just forget the outside world exists at all
