A mediocre movie turned horrid by a bunch of radio-friendly pop songs.

A typical Disney knuckle dragger.

It can't keep up the pace and it fails to generate the laughs that adults have enjoyed in Disney's past two summer hits, Mulan and Hercules.

Perhaps Disney thought the best way to get around the ooga-booga stereotype was to eliminate blacks altogether.

It's hard not to read the film in racial terms and the result is a confused mess of mixed signals that substitutes a brutal climax for any kind of satisfactory resolution.

Tarzan is the cinematic equivalent of a Cajun McChicken sandwich - it's a little bit bold, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of McMovie.

Travels light, moves quickly and leaves very little in its wake.

Just as Disney animation has become increasingly impressive, so have Disney animated films become increasingly adult.

Something deep within the Tarzan myth speaks to us, and Disney's new animated Tarzan captures it.

From a purely visual standpoint, this may be the most impressive of all of Disney's traditionally animated features!

Kids will be drawn to Disney's fast-paced version.

An especially lively voice cast and often breathtaking blend of traditional and computer animation should make this one of the bigger hits in the Disney cartoon canon.

A pleasure to watch, full of excitement and fun, and not over-heavy on the sentiment.

A rambunctious, visually arresting, occasionally poignant musical adventure!
