On an African safari, Eliza Thornberry discovers that thanks to a shaman, she can now talk to animals.

I could use a hot bath and a good meal.
You're in luck. They'll be bringing the hay down any minute.
I'm to eat hay?
Aye, and sweet, crunchy oats from time to time too.

As an adult fan of the Wild Thornberrys TV show I was very happy to see the film. I was delighted by the fact that movie kept the feel of the TV show while letting us see a little more than we were accustomed to in a half hour. I am amazed though at how many professional critics have reviewed this movie without knowing much background -- to set the record straight Eliza is an American - only her father and paternal grandparents are British - Her mother and maternal grandparents (we know them from the TV show) are American so if Debbie talks like an American teenager that is because she is. Darwin had me laughing out loud -- I hope that there will be more films or at least more new episodes of the show - and thankfully Donnie was kept to a minimum !
