TOP 500 REVIEWERon March 24, 2018
This is still such an odd and fun little film but I am reviewing the Amazon Video presentation. The picture was excellent in HD, as compared to an upscaled viewing of my old DVD. The picture was crisp and clear and the sound was excellent. I really appreciated that they actually had a transfer with such vivid colors. The island really comes to life in this one. I hope you enjoy this one. Leaves are meant to be green and this one measured up beautifully.

The incomparable Bo Derek is the star of this remake of the Tarzan story that actually takes itself seriously. John Derek, in true generosity, avails us of all of his preternaturally beautiful wife's charms. The first hour of the movie, she is clothed, just teasing us, building up the sexual tension for the obvious eventual full nudity to come. We get a delightful glimpse of her magnificent nude body early on when she decides to bathe naked in the rolling surf. What a scene this is!

The plot continues, and takes a strange twist that is of course concocted as a thinly-veiled device to get this amazing creature in the nude again. The scenes in which she is bathed and painted white by the odd native tribe are among the most innocently erotic in all of cinema. Silly, for sure, but these are images that you will not soon forget.

The denouement of the "film" is the innocently depraved final scene, in which Jane finally gets to play (mostly nude, of course) with her "Ape-man" Tarzan. What makes it even more fun is when one of Tarzan's apes playfully tastes one of her nipples. The filmmakers hustle that primate out of the scene before he gets more aroused(as the audience surely is by now). The overly frisky chimp is simply replaced by an equally playful orangutan. Watching Tarzan, this ape, and Bo Derek frolic in the nude together is either erotic or perverse, depending on your point of view. This last 5 minute scene, during which the credits roll, and the scene with the white paint, are the points that in the "old days" men and teen boys fast-forwarded to with their VCRs. Today, you can do the same with your DVD, or better yet the digital version of this movie.

Either way, libidinous males (who have not become jaded with the overexposure of the free, explicit internet) will find this movie an absolute joy, with images that will be seared into their brains for years to come.

If you enjoy seeing Bo Derek wearing very little clothes, swinging on a vine in the jungle, I don't mind if the movie isn't really all that good, I think you'd like this. This film received extremely negative reviews, and in some circles has been considered to be one of the worst films ever made, even though it was a box-office success. The actor originally picked to play Tarzan quit soon after filming began, and then they brought in Miles O'Keefe to play the part.
I actually did enjoy seeing Bo Derek wearing very little clothes and swinging a vine in the jungle, so for me it wasn't that bad at all.

Well, admittedly, this is a rather campy, and hyper-sexualized, version of the original Tarzan tale. The eye candy is certainly there. When Bo Derek tells Miles O'Keefe "You're as beautiful as I am," that rather says it all. Whatever your orientation, you will find something hot in "Tarzan the Ape Man". A new one is due out in Summer, 2016, but I doubt if it can top this one in the lust department.

I saw this movie when it was first released. I was surprised at how really innocent this movie is.Sure there's nudity,but in the jungle background it seems natural.Bo Derek is surprisingly good in this retelling of the Edgar Rice burroughs classic story told from Jane's point of view.Veteran British actor Richard Harris gives an over the top -and sort of incestious overtones-as Jane's explorer father.Miles O'Keefe-in his first major role-makes a hunky Tarzan. The locations in Sri Lanka are BREATHTAKING!A good movie for a rainy day!

I bought this DVD just for the opportunity to strap on my drool bucket and look at Miles O'Keefe. Forget Bo Derek and her laughable performance. This purchase was all about Miles. No he didn't have to say a thing., he was hot! Richard Harris was surprisingly good in this. I guess that is because he is an actor.

I watched this movie on Instant Video which was a bonus. The adventure plot is simple to understand. A woman took a sea journey to Africa looking for her father, a kind of hunter. She found him with a living-in wife and his camera-man in a tribe. The topless and
little clothing were appropriate in this tropical jungle. There was an ongoing danger not to be ignored. A flesh-eating group of natives.
She joined her father's exploration. In her adventure, she experienced many unexpected events: (1) A lion watching her playful and nude bathing on a beach. Tarzan appeared and shouted the lion away. Her father and aid came with rifles to help and that scared Tarzan away. (2) Tarzan spied on her journey. He kidnapped her when she washed her face on a river bank. His curiosity only.
(3) One time she was tangled by a water snake. Tarzan came to her rescue. He was hurt and tired dropping her and himself by
a river. Three monkeys and an elephant came to serve their master. Her first fear of Tarzan disappeared. Her curiosity this time.
(4) Her father and team searched for her. Finding them together, they were ready to fire at Tarzan. He got away in puzzle.
(5) A little while, this whole team was caught by the dangerous group of natives. Servants carrying tools and food were killed.
They brought the daughter, father and camera-man back to their home quarter. Their leader was of extra large size. He killed
the father with an elephant tooth. This dead man's daughter was handy washed for a sacrifice. The camera-man watched
the whole scene helplessly. (6) Tarzan together with several elephants came to help release them. A heavy fight and wrestling
turned out that Tarzan was the winner. At the death of leader, this tribe came to pieces. The camera-man was happy to be alive
and he chose to terminate this exploration. But the woman decided to remain living with Tarzan and his animals.
Well, erotic scenes were added hereby on (1) and (6) addressing hot climate and passion. Most importantly, the lighting and photography effects were outstanding beautiful. Bo Derek was the pretty actress and successful director. An enjoyable film.
