A horribly animated film that seemed thrown together as it didn't have the craftsmanship the first two films had nor the cast to bring the characters to life! Although it did have it's positive moments it is nothing "to call home to mom about".

It suffers from the exact same issue as Belle's Magical World, Cinderella II: Dreams Come True, and Atlantis: Milo's Return where it's literally just three episodes of a TV series that never happened (although unlike the other three movies I mentioned, Tarzan actually did get a television show), but the trailer literally says, "the story continues in an all new movie". It advertised itself as a sequel to Tarzan instead of what it actually is, which is a TV pilot for the Tarzan television show. I thought at first it was actually honest about what it was, and I originally gave it two stars, but after looking at the trailer, nope! I changed my mind! I give it one and a half stars because I felt like I was being lied to! Seriously, talk about false marketing! As for the animation, yes, it is a major downgrade from the first movie, but then again, this is a TV pilot to the Tarzan series, so I think the animation here is acceptable for something like that. Outside of that, it's an awful movie with misleading advertising.

Not the best one I think there should not have been a second one

It's not awful, but it's just another one of those pointless Disney sequels that is just a combination of a few stories into one overall story.

Not awful, but it feels like one of those TV shows where they use old clips and string them together with a lame framing story. (Oh, wait, that's what it is!)

The rehashed Tarzan and Jane insults its incredible predecessor by dumbing down its characters, offering ugly poor animation, being extremely lame, and ending any chance of making a good continuation to the franchise.

If you enjoy the original and the follow-up television series, then you'll probably find enjoyment in this slightly charming, good-natured sequel that provides some of the original's heart and also one of the best songs, next to Phil Collins' music, of the series. However, even though it's enjoyably watchable that's decent, it's still a direct-to-video flick from Disney with an acceptable value but being a much less feat. (B)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

This is like smashing 3 of the worst disney channel episodes together and calling it a movie. It's terrible.

During the time when Disney was putting out animated sequels to see if they can get one good enough to turn the three animated segments into an actual series, the only one that got anywhere was Tarzan & Jane.

The animation is a little off occasionally, the voice acting isn't all that great, the writing is awful, the jokes are terrible, and the story is incredibly lazy.

Más allá de los errores que tuvo, fue una película visualmente buena. Aún así de estar muy lejos del nivel de su predecesora, ésta es digna de ver, siendo las emocionantes y divertidas escenas las que la salvan.

You act more like an ape every day.

Jane and Tarzan have reached their one year wedding anniversary and Jane wants to think of something creative she can do for her husband. She thinks of the regular things, like going out for singing and dancing, but each direction tells a tale of an adventure they experienced together over the last year, and none of the adventures likely need to be brought up again in front of Tarzan. Can Jane come up with something special to do with Tarzan, and what exactly happened between Tarzan and Jane that apply to dancing and going out to eat?

"You have deprived England of the finest woman in the empire. Congratulations."
"Thank you. Now leave."

Steve Loter, director of episodes of Ren & Stimpy, Duckman, Clerks, Kim Possible, Happy Monster Band, and the American Dragon TV series, delivers Tarzan and Jane. The storyline for this picture is just okay and fairly disappointing. The animation style was also mediocre as were the voices selected for the characters.

"Today he is wearing pants."

Tarzan & Jane is a movie I grabbed off Netflix to watch with my daughter. It was just okay and despite having animals, only barely kept her attention. She did watch the majority of the film, and we both seemed to agree we were disappointed. Overall, this is worth watching once but I wouldn't add it to my child's DVD collection.

"Tarzan is not a science project. He's my husband."

Grade: C

This Children's animated movie was ok, but, not nearly as good as the first one and storyline is a little dull and disappointing

Tarzan & Jane never had a chance of living up to the success of its masterful predecessor, but if it wasn't so cheaply animated, insufficiently voice acted or half-assed in its storytelling then it could have been good.

These problems are all attributable to the fact that Tarzan & Jane is merely the product of 3 unaired episodes of the TV series The Legend of Tarzan, so rather than being a sequel it's more of a cheap attempt to capitalise on the success of the TV series for the benefit of the Disney Direct-to-DVD market. That's just aggravating for a fan of Tarzan to see succeeding the TV show attempt to pass off a compilation of the TV series as a movie, and it's frankly just not what Tarzan is about. Although I don't hold anything against the TV show because of how it continued the legacy of such a classic movie and was entertaining to me as a kid, when several episodes of it become marketed as a movie, that's just not appropriate and misleads fans.
It's not satisfying to the fact that it is supposedly a film, yet has a story which is too obviously a mere combination of episodes and really introduces nothing new to the characters or to the story of Tarzan, and so frankly is a waste of time to fans. Even the stories themselves have diluted messages and boring themes, as well as sub-par animation. Really, no creativity or originality was put into Tarzan and Jane, and the mild sense of colours and nostalgia towards the heroic character are the only mild benefits of this cheaply animated and poorly voice acted TV special marketed as a movie but featuring no real reason worth enjoying. The nostalgia just isn't enough, and this should have stayed as a TV special.
