User Reviews

Funny, moving and beautifully made.
14 April 2007 | by wildanimalsSee all my reviews

How come the so-called 'helpful' comments are the negative ones. It disgusts me. Wild at Heart in fact is as not as bad as these comments make it out to be. Wild at Heart is about a vet and his family who move to Africa. They meet up with Dupe Plessi, an alcoholic (non-stereotypical) bad-tempered Afrikaan, and try to bring the wildlife back to a dried up infertile wasteland. They have many adventures involving monkeys, lions, elephants and all sorts. It's dramatic, well-made and very funny. Who cares if it's not 100% accurate? I like it. There were some beautiful shots of African wildlife. Yes, I could simply watch a nature film instead, but I doubt that it will have the same impact. I agree it is predictable, but that's the sort of thing I like on Sunday night. I mean, if I'm tired and there's a long week ahead, do I want to watch some complicated murder mystery where you are constantly left in the dark to as where you are in the plot? No. And even if it is predictable, the storyline is still well-done.

This is a wonderful show, sadly is does not get the credit it so thoroughly deserves.
