Screenwriter Kate Boutilier provides plenty of sharp patter.
January 26, 2006
A decent soundtrack rounds off a surprisingly engaging and energetic little-kids' adventure.
March 25, 2003
Pretty good half-term holiday fare.

The animation may not be in the same class as The Lion King, but co-directors Jeff McGrath and Cathy Malkasian deserve praise for their attempts to render Africa's wildlife as authentically as possible.
December 27, 2002
Too often feels like a glorified TV episode.
December 23, 2002
An entertaining feature-length version of the Nickelodeon TV cartoon.

Thumbs up for The Wild Thornberrys Movie.
December 20, 2002
Doesn't do more than expand a TV show to movie length. However, it's pleasant enough and its ecological, pro-wildlife sentiments are certainly welcome.
December 20, 2002
Outstanding entertainment for little ones but just as rewarding for their adult companions.
December 20, 2002
The animated redhead is the gutsiest young female heroine to hit the big screen since the live-action ladies in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
December 20, 2002
The soundtrack alone is worth the price of admission.
December 20, 2002
The soundtrack features some terrific music from Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour and others, and the widescreen animation is a vividly colorful translation of the Thornberrys' distinctive TV style.
December 20, 2002
It all adds up to a cheekier Lion King on a lower budget. But what you miss in spectacle you will make up in laughs.
December 20, 2002
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.
December 20, 2002
This is the first Nickelodeon big-screen spinoff that will leave you feeling as if you've been through a real movie instead of an expanded TV segment.
December 20, 2002
Bland but harmless.
December 20, 2002
Smart, funny and good-looking animation guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
December 20, 2002
With its familiar Lion King setting, feminist-environmental message and cute animals, the movie should keep children amused, while remaining bearable to adult gamekeepers.
December 20, 2002
An average kid-empowerment fantasy with slightly above-average brains.
