Synopsis

In this animation, the Thornberry family travels through Africa making documentaries about wildlife, and 12-year-old Eliza (voice of Lacey Chabert) uses a gift given to her by an African witch doctor to talk to animals. When poachers from a helicopter abduct a baby cheetah, Eliza risks her life in an unsuccessful attempt to save her. Her frightened parents, Marianne and Nigel (Jodi Carlisle and Tim Curry), decide Eliza must go to an exclusive London boarding school. But Eliza can’t forget the baby cheetah and runs away from school, accompanied by her constant companion Darwin (Tom Kane), a comical chimpanzee.

Dove Review

Animal lovers and fans of the Nickelodeon TV cartoon will find “The Wild Thornberrys” an entertaining experience. Jokes about flatulence abound, and disturbingly sorcery is used to empower Eliza to talk to the animals. So, parents should be careful and know that this activity occurs. There is no foul language and the comic relief given by Eliza’s sister is fun for everyone who has ever had a teenage girl.
