Chimpanzee

Critics Consensus

Chimpanzee often anthropomorphizes its subjects, but it's a beautifully filmed, remarkably intimate look at the lives of a family of primates.

Deep in an African forest lives a family of chimpanzees, including a baby named Oscar. Displaying the playful curiosity and ingenuity of fellow primates, Oscar and his family navigate the forest's complex territory with relative ease.

Audience Reviews for Disneynature Chimpanzee

    For Oscar, every day is an adventure. Good Disney Nature movie! Gorgeously filmed and just the right length to keep smaller ones from getting bored, I was amazed at the footage that the filmmakers got of these chimps. I am one of those who has trouble leaving the primate area of the zoo and it does make you marvel at their similarities with humans.You'll feel like you just went on a trip to the rain forest of Africa, and I can't imagine a child or teen not liking this. Or an adult for that matter. Oscar, a baby chimpanzee is enjoying his life with his mother in the jungles along the Ivory Coast. Without warning, young Oscar is tragically orphaned during an attack from a rival group of chimpanzees. Afterwards, he attempts to survive on his own, and to be accepted by the other chimps. But Oscar struggles, until he is surprisingly adopted by the Alpha Male of his group.

    This was really great. Rather snarky narration for a disney flick. Beautifully filmed and you'll only tear up a little bit. Probably.

    Cute little documentary about an adorable Chimp named Oscar.

    Enjoyed this more than the other Disney Nature film (Oceans) but this one suffers as did that one from exquisite cinematography marred by crappy script and lackluster narration. Does anyone really go to see Chimpanzee to hear Tim Allen's voice? Next time Disney needs to throw more $ at script and less at talent. Nevertheless it was great spending 80 minutes with Oscar and the gang. (5-20-12)
