Critic Reviews for The Wild Thornberrys Movie
A decent soundtrack rounds off a surprisingly engaging and energetic little-kids' adventure.
Too often feels like a glorified TV episode.
An entertaining feature-length version of the Nickelodeon TV cartoon.
Audience Reviews for The Wild Thornberrys Movie
I loved this when I was a kid, but its only for people who know the show well like I did, but now its just an okay movie.
a fantastic to screen adaptation of the TV show
Just an overlong episode really. Contains nothing at all new accept a few of the voice cameos and a bigger budget. Some nice humour and family friendly action scenes though.
