One for the kids ...
The characters in The Wild Thornberrys Movie are well-defined and delightful; the well-written script zips along and the animation is visually dynamic. This charming movie version of the Nickelodeon cartoon centres on Eliza, the youngest daughter of the Thornberry family. Her parents, Nigel and Marianne, travel the world to create nature programmes for television. But Eliza, thanks to a mystical encounter, has the power to talk to animals--a power that leads her on the hunt for poachers in Africa who have captured a baby cheetah. Eliza's best friend, a chimpanzee named Darwin, is along for the ride, while her resentful teenage sister Debbie is trying to bring her back to their parents. All in all, this is an excellent animated feature featuring the voices of Tim Curry, Lacey Chabert, Rupert Everett, Marisa Tomei, Alfred Woodard and Lynn Redgrave. --Bret Fetzer
