The movie is about the life of Tarzan. Tarzan was a small orphan who was raised by an ape named Kala since he was a child. He believed that this was his family, but on an expedition Jane Porter is rescued by Tarzan. He then finds out that he's human. Now Tarzan must make the decision as to which family he should belong to... Written by
Phil Collins was chosen to provide the music as a deliberate move away from the Disney "showtune" formula. See more »
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 »

We're too late! I can't believe it! If only you had asked for directions.
We didn't even get to say goodbye.
Well, good riddance! Who needs you? Go on, get out of here, bald boy! You ingrate! You bald ingrate!

Go out and rot, for all I care!

I'm gonna miss him, too.

I found this surprisingly good because not only was animation well done
which they all seem to be in the past decade - but an involving,
action-packed story that was interesting start-to-finish. The action is not overdone, however. The color in here is magnificent and it looks spectacular on DVD.
The film turned out to be a good combination of drama, action, comedy and romance. I would think this would be a little too frightening, however, for little kids, for those wondering about that. The only negative I had was listening to the grating voice of Rose O'Donnell. That, and her New York City, accent, is definitely not appealing. Otherwise, I have nothing but good things to say about this film.
