Sorry my child ever saw this garbage
16 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I was only able to stomach a few minutes of this spew at a time so I can't say I watched the whole thing. I have to wonder who the writing was aimed at however - presumably a lot of the 'jokes' were for grown-ups, but that doesn't mean they ought to include adult humour in something so obviously aimed at small children. References to 'packing heat' and worse of all - unbelievable really - a 'tastes like chicken' joke!!! What were these people thinking? The idea that animals in the jungle think and speak like the typical American teenager in a mall is deeply, almost profoundly sad. I think the powers that put together this soul-destroying waste of time, energy and resources have a lot to answer for. I trust their fancy cars and houses help them sleep at night. Truth told, they are the problem.
