2.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on the Disney movie, May 2, 2002
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jungle Book [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I bought this tape for my three year old thinking thatthis was the Disney version. Big mistake. The animation is not even close to the Disney standard, and the storyline lacks the polish of a Disney production. None of the little touches of comedy that children love exist in this fairly mediocre recreation of Kipling
s classic. That being said, it is perhaps slightly closer to Kipling's version when compared to Disney. But then, if you are buying an animated cartoon for your child, I doubt if the focus should be on the original literary version!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the 7 wonders of comedy, May 2, 2002
This review is from: Wonder Man [VHS] (VHS Tape)
"Wonder Man" may not have the most credible of storylines of Danny Kaye's work, but it has some of the finest moments of pure anarchic ad-libbing and timing you will ever get to see after the Marx brothers.
The story--of diametrically opposite twins, one a shy suburban academic and the other a wacky showman with mafia links--is curious and the plot is strained. But that does not restrict the brilliant Danny Kaye. In a memorable scene after the twin in showbusiness is killed, his ghost takes over the body of the twin in central park. And Danny Kaye gets to do his celebrated Russian opera singer routine, which is itself worth the price of the DVD or VHS. The ending, with Danny Kaye doing Opera in pig-Italian, is to be seen to be believed.
This movie is right up there with "Duck Soup", "A night at the Opera" and other such classics of comedy
