The movie fart jokes aren't $8.25 funnier than the TV ones.

The script is a dim-witted pairing of teen-speak and animal gibberish.

The feature-length stretch ... strains the show's concept.

There's barely enough plot here for a 22-minute TV episode and not nearly enough for an 88-minute movie.

This is a children's film in the truest sense. It's packed with adventure and a worthwhile environmental message, so it's great for the kids. Parents, on the other hand, will be ahead of the plot at all times, and there isn't enough clever innuendo to fil

Jeff McGrath and Cathy Malkasian direct by staging one action sequence after another: Trains and rhinos and helicopters and SUVs and elephants become indistinguishable, and the few moments of peace are welcome oases in this skein of chases.

Kids who are into this Thornberry stuff will probably be in wedgie heaven. Anyone else who may, for whatever reason, be thinking about going to see this movie is hereby given fair warning.
