By Bundt Lust VINE VOICE on March 5, 2003
It has to be said: although I'm a twentysomething, I still *love * to watch Nickelodeon cartoons, my absolute favourite being "The Wild Thornberrys." I've seen every episode (many more than once), and I was a little skeptical at the thought of a full-length animated movie.
Happily, the movie far surpassed my wildest expectations. The animation looks great, including the use of several CGI elements not present in the series (at some moments it reminded me of "The Lion King"). There is enough background information included (including the opening credits of the series) that newcomers won't feel left behind. The whole Thornberry gang is here, including the addition of Nigel's parents, and several new characters as well. The voice work is fantastic, including such well-known names as Tim Curry as Nigel, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea as Donnie, Rupert Everett as the baddie, and Marisa Tomei. The music is an eclectic mix of traditional and modern, featuring such talents as Sting, Dave Matthews, P. Diddy and Brandy, Youssou D'Nour, Sting, Baha Men, Nick Carter, Peter Gabriel and Hugh Masekela.
The story finds Eliza Thornberry, a twelve-year old with the magical ability to talk to animals, on a hunt for migrating elephants with her family, who are award-winning naturalists. Eliza's older sister Debbie is a moody, pop culture-obsessed Valley Girl who hates all the wilderness trekking. Donnie is the Bornean wild boy that the Thornberrys adopted, who is always causing trouble by making messes and stuffing things up his nose or down his pants. Darwin is Eliza's best friend, a chimpanzee with very human tastes, including his obsession with Cheese Munchies. Eliza starts out playing with the cubs of a cheetah friend, but when one of them is stolen by a poacher Eliza must rescue him.

Eliza is the youngest of the Thornberry's - family dragged across the world by Mom & Dad to document nature ala Attenborough. Unknown to her parents and bratty older sister Debbie, Eliza can talk to the animals - a gift given her when she laved the life of a mystic shaman. Though no human can learn the secret, Eliza's gift has made her a best friend to animals like the chatty chimp Darwin and a family of Cheetahs. When one of the cheetah cubs is captured by a mysterious high-tech poacher, it's Eliza to the rescue (that is, once she can escape back to Africa from a boarding school to which her cartoonish-ly British grandmother consigns her).
There's not much here that will surprise you (i.e., reward the parents who bring their kids to see this flick), and the story doesn't keep to any single ideas throughout the movie, or at least any longer than it would in a half-hour episode on NickToons. Still, my kids were game, and my 3-and a half year old never asked to leave.

The theme of this movie is revealed on the theatrical posters. "You don't have to have extraordinary powers to do extraordinary things." What an empowering message for children saturated by super-powered heros every day of the week, as well as on the big screen!
The Thornberrys are a weekly cartoon and we'd never seen it, but the previews in the theaters looked so good, we thought we'd try it.
Needless to say, at 62, I and my wife were the oldest people in the theater by far.
We weren't disappointed. There was a lot of business thrown in for the younger set, (Mud, food fights, etc.) but also a lot of funny things which appealed to adults. Especially the sarcastic valley girl older sister, who learns some lessons herself. It's the kind of humor animators have been slipping into kids shows on television to keep the adults in the audience too. The story is good if you are willing to go along with it, after all, it is a cartoon!
As soon as I got home, I emailed my sisters suggesting they might want to take their grandchildren to see it. (If they need an excuse to be seen at a "kids" movie.) I'd say there are a few scenes which may be intense for anyone under five, but everyone above that age should really enjoy it, even "grand-parent aged" people.

This cartoon movie, based on the kids' tv series, is an excellent movie to entertain people of all ages. It is visually stimulating and fast paced, capturing the attention of even young children for the duration of the movie. It delivers a wonderful message, without forcing it on the audience. You will walk away from this movie feeling great.

I have always enjoyed the Wild Thornberrys. The premise was cool, the characters were interesting and well-developed (especially as the show moved along), and there was an attempt to portray many different cultures as this family literally traveled around the world. These attempts weren't always successful, but I'll let that go along with the fact that I could never get a motor home as cool as the one that the Thornberrys had. When this movie came along, it didn't simply take a half-hour episode's content and stretch it out for the theaters' benefit. It created a continuation of a story that was perfect for the big screen while allowing the show to subsequently pick up on some of its specific plot threads. Eliza Thornberry and her Chimpanzee companion, Darwin, witness the abduction of a Cheetah cub by poachers. Eliza tries to save her four-legged friend but fails and, because of the danger she put herself in in the process, is sent to a British boarding school at the insistence of her overprotective grandmother. Sure that the Cheetah cub is still alive, Eliza resolves to return to Africa and find him and the poachers before more harm befalls anyone. That's easier said than done and the movie gives a proper amount of time to all aspects of this plan and the setbacks that come along. It is also laced with talented guest stars including Rupert Everett, Marisa Tomei, Kimberly Brooks, and Tim Curry, who, in addition to his starring role as Nigel Thornberry, voices his own father...just listen to the family resemblance. Speaking of Nigel, I think that, in this movie, he proves his capabilities as a father more than in any episode of the show, despite his quirky mannerisms...just listen to his chat with Eliza right before her departure for boarding school...Paul Simon's song is definitely appropriate right after that. This is a top-notch Nickelodeon project for the big screen and no one should miss it. Enjoy.
