For Oscar, every day is an adventure.
Good Disney Nature movie! Gorgeously filmed and just the right length to keep smaller ones from getting bored, I was amazed at the footage that the filmmakers got of these chimps. I am one of those who has trouble leaving the primate area o...

Chimpanzee unabashedly goes after all the cheap and sappy gimmicks a nature doc can to try and please its audience and for the most part it has succeeded in that regard. After a fairly impressive start to their annual Earth Day naturedoc entry, Disney has struggle as of late an...

Enjoyed this more than the other Disney Nature film (Oceans) but this one suffers as did that one from exquisite cinematography marred by crappy script and lackluster narration. Does anyone really go to see Chimpanzee to hear Tim Allen's voice? Next time Disney needs to throw mo...

Wonderful (meaning cute and sweet), sad, but wonderful as both Disney and Disneynature always makes films appealing to families. (B+)
