Eliza (Lacey Chabert) and Debbie (Danielle Harris) are two sisters who don't always get along. But their relationship is put to the test when Debbie's life is in danger, and Eliza might have to give up her power to talk to animals.
On an African safari, 12-year-old Eliza Thornberry discovers that thanks to a shaman, she can now talk to animals. When Eliza discovers that poachers in the Serengeti plan to kill an elephant herd with an electrified fence, she and her chimpanzee friend Darwin must somehow find a way to stop them.

Tally (Cheetah Cub):
[leaps into Eliza's arms]
Oh, Tally! I knew I'd find you.
Tally (Cheetah Cub):
Eliza, we have to get out of here.
What do you mean?
[stands in the RV door]
Sloan. This cheetah cub... Where-- Where did you get him?
[enters the RV]
I picked him up on the savannah.
You bought him?
No. I picked him up... right off the ground.

I remember watching 'The Wild Thornberrys' TV show as a kid and always enjoyed it. I saw the movie when it first came out in 2002 and watched it again recently when I came across it on Prime. I'm really surprised at how relatively unknown the movie is, and the TV show has even fewer votes. I always assumed it was well-known and popular, but the measly 12000 votes and handful of reviews suggests otherwise.
'The Wild Thornberrys Movie' is identical to the TV show but with a more movie-appropriate story and added adventure. I always enjoyed the characters, especially Eliza's father who always made me laugh as a kid. I'm surprised and a bit disheartened to see how relatively unknown this movie is. It's nothing special but it definitely deserves more recognition, and a more fairer rating.
