Chimpanzee Movie Review

Chimpanzee Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 22, 2012
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Tim Allen narrates the Disneynature documentary Chimpanzee, which follows a family of chimps during the trials and triumphs of their lives. Kidzworld has the movie review.

Daily Life of a Chimpanzee

Baby chimp Oscar lives with his mother and extended family in the African forest. Their daily lives consist of grooming and searching for food - fruits, nuts and smaller monkeys - which gets more difficult as the seasons change.

Orphaned

A rival tribe of chimpanzees is eager to take their nut grove, which means a deadly fight. When the other tribe attacks, Oscar’s mother is lost to them forever. Oscar struggles to find someone who will care for him. All the females in his tribe have babies of their own, and don’t have the time to feed or groom him.

Adopted

As Oscar begins to starve in his struggle to survive, an unsuspecting chimpanzee steps in as his surrogate mother - Freddie, the tribe’s alpha-male. Freddie cares for Oscar as if he were his own baby. And Oscar clings to him like a shadow.

The Bottom Line

Chimpanzee is a great film for learning about wild chimps and their daily habits. But in terms of entertainment factor, the movie doesn’t offer a climax. Also, the previews are misleading. They suggest that Oscar is left alone and adopted by a random chimpanzee. This is not the case. As a result, the film is a bit disappointing. If you’re interested in seeing this film, we recommend you watch it in theatres as partial proceeds from the opening week’s sales will go to the Jane Goodall Institute to help protect chimps in their natural habitats.

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
