  1. Hits you on the head until you laugh.
  2. One of the most witty, entertaining family films to come out in some time.
  3. The kind of silly summer fun that gives family entertainment a good name.
  4. 60
    This bit of fluff overflows with so much honest charm it barely matters that it's one in a seemingly endless succession of Tarzan retreads.
  5. 50
    So silly, so garishly over-the-top, and so bracingly eager to please, that it's hard not to fall under its gleefully gooney spell.
  6. The plot is predictable, and the humor is uncreative and often crude. The heroine, however, is endearing in her quirkiness.
  7. This appalling desecration of Jay Ward's 1960s cartoon series suffers from countless movie-ruining flaws.
