User Reviews

Cute and cuddly, boys
21 July 2005 | by diand_See all my reviews

This is based on a popular TV series and the movie targets the same age group of 6-12 year old children. There is almost a character for every child to identify with.

The story is about an exchange program of Dutch zoo rangers so they end up in South Africa to experience the obvious threats of animals and humans. Among others there is a wildlife park manager with some lucrative but not too wildlife-friendly ideas. There is at least a positive wildlife message here.

Dutch acting schools are not the best in the world and it shows. The script is badly written. There is some tradition of good camera-work, it is above average here.

This is fun if you don't want to go to the zoo to see some animals. That's all there is. I saw this just before the infinitely better Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so I would recommend sending your kid there.
