Great animated films -- heck, great films in any medium -- have a theme that carries all the way through. But The Wild is a random assortment of vignettes connected by butt jokes and the half-idea of a lion cub rebelling against his dad.
The animation here impresses more than in the equally defunct Madagascar, but everything else smacks of an easy money-making exercise of such dimwitted inanity even the youngest kids will see through it.
The film is ultimately noise and its story is so overdone at this point that far from being swept up in it, we're only hoping that the next plot point isn't as predictable as the last. But things never do work out that way.
