Goofs

No actual documentation of the Honeyguide bird leading honey badgers to bee hives is known to exist, although they do this with humans. The "story" in the film is done with editing and a model bird simply being dangled in front of the badger. See more »

Maybe animals have more fun than people do.
25 May 1999 | by yenloSee all my reviews

Most documentary films involving animals are on the rather serious side. This one is an exception. Animals captured on film often times encountering situations not unlike that of people. A viewer would have to be wrapped pretty tight to not laugh at least once during this film. Have you ever seen a monkey with a hangover? You will if you watch this delightful film.
