Quotes

Joseph: Well, like the song says 'Give my regards to Broadway'. You can still change your mind
Tarzan: No. I must go, Joseph
Joseph: OK. But remember: you're going to be up against something stronger than poison darts, more cunning than killer snakes, and fiercer than Simba the Lion.
Tarzan: What is that?
Joseph: New Yorkers!
Tarzan: New Yorkers
Joseph: This is as far as I can go. I didn't want to break this to you before but you can't take the knife
Tarzan: Won't I need it against the New Yorkers, Joseph?
Joseph: Yes. But they won't let you take it on the plane.

Tarzan is Evergreen and Everlasting! Loved it!
29 May 2013 | by television23See all my reviews

Enjoyed watching Tarzan in Manhattan and I think Joe Lara is so gorgeous I could watch him forever!

I loved the moment with Tarzan and Cheetah together...hilarious...

Action, Adventure, Romance, Animals, lots of humor, this TV movie has it all!!

Great locations and Tarzan on the bus on top of Times Square is wonderful.

The photography is terrific and the sets are super and I loved the fancy house they used for the Brightmore mansion.

A definite thumbs up to this family film once again proving that Tarzan is Evergreen and Everlasting!!
