    Very enjoyable movie about a family of chimpanzees, especially their youngest scion, Oscar. The group searches for food, teaches the little guy the rules of the game, and fights off their enemies. In some respects, it's a lot like "Bambi," only this is real footage and not a fictional story. A few moments may be scary to very young children. Most viewers will find it simple but heartwarming. A fun movie if you want to see something lighter and get away from explosions and aliens for a while. Collapse

    Chimpanzee, the new proyect of Disneynature, I need say that this documentary is great, but is not the better job of Disneynature, I think that the need more data, and do this documentary more interesting (yeah is interesting, but in some moments boring), because the chimpanzees are an amazing animals, the documentary is excellent, but need improve some aspects.

    Awesome movie!!!! Yes, there are things I can nitpick about and wish were done differently or explored more thoroughly, but the bottom line is that the movie was great for my family.... was enjoyed by my cynical 9 year old and my movie theater hating 8 year old and tolerated by my almost 4 year old. The cinematography was fantastic and my hats off the the crew that made the magic happen. This wasn't a documentary made for the doctoral student in animal behavior but a great family film that kept us captivated and taught us a thing or two along the way. Expand

    By film's end, you'll wish they tossed Allen in the rainforest and left him for the leopards to snack on.

    It's unfortunate that the filmmakers juxtapose those striking visuals with a warlike anthropomorphizing element.

    The stunning and mostly uncompromising visuals more than compensate for the frequent corny turns of phrase.
