When the True-Life nature documentary films coming out of the Disney studio started to get criticism for being too manipulated by the people behind the camera, studio head Walt Disney decided to make one with a decidedly fiction story attached to it. That movie was of course "Perri". It was a promising idea, but it doesn't quite work, at least for adult audiences. The main problem with the movie is that the particular animal that the movie follows - a squirrel - is a species that doesn't exactly exude intelligence or charisma. Its actions, at least those seen in the movie, don't really give it personality. As a result, it's hard to care about this squirrel, who dominates the bulk of the movie. There is some interest here and there, mainly by showcasing other animal wildlife in action, though its easy to see which scenes were shot in a studio instead of the outdoors. But adults who have seen their share of documentaries will probably find the movie for the most part to be not very engaging, though their kids might find it of sufficient interest.
