The animation is horrible, dialogue non-existent except for when it's non-sensical, and the sound effects are straight out of a kindercare music class, and not in a good way. I echo the question posed in earlier reviews - what in the world was Redbox thinking putting this movie in their machines? Do the Life's a Jungle producers (using the term very loosely here) have incriminating evidence on some Redbox executive??? They must, because this movie brings "Waste of time and money" to a new level.
My 7 year old (who likes nearly anything animated, with this flick being the notable exception) and I were back to the Redbox within 20 minutes to return this stinker. I've never been so thrilled at the prospect of a Chipmunks movie as I was tonight when we stuffed this waste of plastic back into the Redbox to get ChipWrecked in return.
Stay away from Life's a Jungle and send a note to Redbox (CoinStar is the parent company) and if you've been unlucky enough to rent it before reading these reviews, tell them what you think of this selection. There must be something else that could occupy this space in the machine. I'm thinking a 20-min loop of the emergency broadcast system would be a step in the right direction.
Within minutes my children are begging me to stop. They apologize for their actions. Depending on what has happened I will either pause the video or continue to have them watch it. The best thing about this movie is that it works on all ages and it's a completely legal punishment tool. The other parents at the PTA agree with me, buy it today!
The dialogue was probably written by an epileptic having a seizure against his keyboard. It makes so little sense that your brain will literally turn itself inside out trying to comprehend it, and the vegetative state you go into will be preferable to watching this movie. If you hold this movie against Stephen Spielberg and make the sign of the cross, he spontaneously combusts and fire shoots out of his eyes.
I would like to burn the movie and fart on the ashes. Actually, that's too dignified. I would burn it, fart on it and then bury it under the graves of the kids who did Columbine. If you think I'm exaggerating, you obviously haven't seen this movie. It's about as useful as a Warhol gallery for blind people, but I'm giving it one star instead of zero because it's easy to snort cocaine off of.
Life's a Jungle is just a strange, strange film. Textures pop in and out, animation glitches cause characters to stutter as they walk, and the film's soundtrack is permeated by odd noises, like loon calls, and cats that sound like human babies. Combined with the film's meandering pace--characters often stand around, silent, for minutes at a time--the film takes on a tone that's almost impossible to describe.
The film doesn't feel like it was made by "people." It doesn't remind me of anything I would come up with, or anything I've seen other people come up with. It feels like it fell out of a tree somewhere, created by a wholly alien intelligence. It's incomprehensible to us. This is not a compliment.
With unlikable characters, an eerie, static, dead world, horrendous sound and animation, a trite, predictable story line, and some of the most baffling and drawn out moments of on screen silence and inactivity ever, Life's a Jungle: Africa's Most Wanted has really earned its place in the pantheon of terrible animation. Video Brinquedo and Spark Plug Entertainment have found a friend in whatever this is.
The question then becomes how do films like this come to be and what makes them so inferior to the type of entertainment we've come to expect from some of the companies mentioned above? Read on for a closer look into the process and to determine whether or not this one if right for you.
Life's a Jungle tells the tale of an extremely pampered house dog from England named Pip who goes on tour of Africa with his family. When a rhino charges their open-roof jeep, Pip gets ejected from the vehicle and takes a poorly animated tumble into the wild of the Serengeti.
The core of the story (and its 85-minute runtime) consists of Pip trying to survive the rough and tumble environment while trying to reunite with his wealthy family. To be honest, there's potential here. One can imagine if Sony Image Works or Blue Sky got a hold of this premise, they could probably turn it into something decent. In fact, a strong argument can be made that a tale not too unlike this has been told through DreamWorks' Madagascar or Disney's The Wild and sadly, told much better in either case.
Though the film was produced in 2012, the visuals do very little to aid in the missed-opportunity factor.Read more ›

I don't even know what to write. This can't be real. . Someone recorded their kid playing a video game and overdubbed it to be funny, right? Please tell me that. Please!Published on May 16, 2014 by john p biesecker
