Nickelodeon's animated explorer family runs into poachers in Africa in a sometimes-fun adventure that occasionally collapses into flat, savanna-like stretches.

Observer [UK]

The film's draughtsmanship is more than adequate, the voicing of the characters excellent, and the songs are way above average for such fare.

Amenable parents can watch this with the little ones instead of just using the DVD or VHS tape as a virtual nanny . . .

Adults will be bored into slumber, and even kids deserve something with a little more bite.

Evokes a little of the fear that parents have for the possible futures of their children--and the sometimes bad choices mothers and fathers make in the interests of doing them good.

It may not pull off any state-of-the art animation coups, but The Wild Thornberrys Movie understands that strong characters and involving storytelling are still the bottom line in a quality kids' film.

The animation may not be in the same class as The Lion King, but co-directors Jeff McGrath and Cathy Malkasian deserve praise for their attempts to render Africa's wildlife as authentically as possible.

Shadows on the Wall

This is thoroughly entertaining with an important message. And with its above-average animation it's also well worth seeing on a big screen.

The drumbeat behind the Thornberrys' energetic exploits may not be as explosive as its celebrated Disney counterpart The Lion King, but it certainly gives off a similar rhythmic radiance nevertheless.
