Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Deep in the heart of Africa is a place no man has ever entered. The place that belongs to the lion, the elephant and the ape. A place known as the Bukuvu. Travellers flying overhead can only glimpse at its many marvels, its sparkling rivers, its lush veldts, its billowy cloud formations and its hidden mountains. Never fear, my friends. All was not lost. Scraped and boo-booed, they searched high and low, but they never recovered their most precious cargo.

lots of fun
20 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Brendan Fraser is nothing short of perfect as the klutzy king of the jungle who does all he can to win the girl of his dreams. Packed with plenty of tree banging gags, hilarious wisecracks(note the narrator) and cartoonish comedy. Harmless fun for all ages. 3/4
