I guess it’s fitting that on Earth Day (aka yesterday), the Mister and I saw “Chimpanzee” at our AMC Theater.
And, of course, it’s also fitting that we went to a Disney flick without our one at-home child, making us about the only childless parents watching. Which meant we could hog the popcorn!
“Chimpanzee” was lush, lively, and fascinating. We learned so much about these animals, especially the bond between a baby (Oscar) and his mother (Isha). The film follows cute Oscar and his group as they work to stay alive in the jungle. The filming is amazing! The audience gets an up-close look at the workings of this extended family of chimps.
Tim Allen (aka Buzz Lightyear) does a decent job narrating the movie, with an emphasis on keeping everything on the light side. It’s short at only 77 minutes, but it felt like it was the right length (no Timex checks needed).
“Chimpanzee” is a wonderful family film . . . assuming you can get members of your family to go.
