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!!
