Having spent their whole lives under human abuse in a laboratory, a trio of of genetic animals, consisting of Eddie the Gorilla, Sasha the Cheetah, and Trevor the Parrot, decide to escape the lab and travel the world in hopes of finding a place told only in legends, a place called Himalaya USA. Along the way, however, several trials will be putting the gang to the test, especially ones that test their friendship and test their hopes and faith. A mysterious hunter, meanwhile, trails behind the gang using tracking devices in order to catch them and, how should we say...dispose of them.Written by

I knew nothing about this movie when I picked it, which I did only because it has animals, which my 7 year old daughter loves. It was a bit offbeat, but also quite fun, with great animation (much more attractive than most computer-generated movies made for kids) and surprisingly catchy songs (far better than the saccharine numbers in most straight-to-video fare). The voice cast was excellent also, including Rob Reiner, Sid Caesar, and Chaka Khan (!) Even my 11 year old son, who considers himself way above kid movies like this, got caught up watching it. We all enjoyed it. And I appreciated the message, about being true to your friends and yourself, and I liked the "around-the-world" aspect, because the animals visited several locales that my kids don't know much about. It gets harder and harder to find movies we can watch together as a family, but this one fits the bill very nicely.
