    After films like "The Lion King" and "Pocahontas", "Tarzan" comes as a reminder of the same theme that Disney loves to use, nature vs. human. A balanced story, overall, but too similar to many predecessors in terms of messages and animation. Feels more like an unimaginative sequel to some "Jungle Book".

    Of the many excellent animated features Disney has produced over the past decade, this is the one that feels the freest, and sweetest.

    The movie is a collision between inspiration and tastelessness, between the defiantly quirky and the wholesomely homogenized. I hated it in principle--I hate most modern Disney cartoons--but adored a good deal of it in practice.
  3. We may have seen it all before, but when it's done up like this, experiencing it all over again is a pleasure. [16 June 1999, Calendar, p.F-1]
