Trivia

One movie-goer was compelled to write to the New York Times on July 22nd to vent his anger at how Tarzan's exaggerated physique would cause unrealistic expectations in young boys. See more »

Goofs

The gorillas that raise Tarzan are mountain gorillas, which are only native to Uganda and Rwanda. These countries are not on the west or east coast of Africa, so they should have been western lowland gorillas. See more »

Quotes

Jane Porter: Oh, Tarzan, you have no idea what's in store for you. You're going to see the world, and all kinds of people will want to meet you. Leaders, scientists, writers.
Professor Porter: Yes, Darwin and Kipling. Queen Victoria!
Jane Porter: I haven't met her, but I hear she's awfully nice.

21 December 2005 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

I loved "Tarzan"!

I was afraid that Disney would cheap out on the romance but there was enough in it for me.

I liked the Phil Collins drums, but wasn't crazy about his voice throughout the whole film (nor were the restless toddlers in the audience), rather than character voices singing.

The animation was wonderful,incorporating computers and gels.

The elephant was too much like Horton Hears A Who, but Rosie O'Donnell's voicing of the ape friend was wonderful.
