"Project X" reflects quality and care throughout, but its elements don't quite mesh.

Plenty of strikes against this--moronic story line, obligatory animal mugging, more "awwwww" opportunities than any film since 3 Men and a Cradle--but it's still one of the most accomplished pulp fantasies in a while.

Broderick is rightly more subdued here than in some recent performances, and supporting cast is discreetly effective.

Disney-ish drama with a conscience.

The director, Jonathan Kaplan, lays on the animal antics without stint; it's a one-ring circus. The way he tugs at our sympathy for the poor smart beasts may remind you of a house pet scratching away for attention.

It's as unabashedly political as "Silkwood" and unashamedly sentimental as "Lassie Come Home." Yet it remains taut and resists the temptation to paint the villains too broadly.

Although Parkes and Lasker produce a set of primates guaranteed to charm the upholstery off the theater seats, there is little else.

It's content to be a well-made, intelligent entertainment aimed primarily, I imagine, at bright teenagers. It works on that level.
