Storyline Heading

Orphaned in the African jungle and lovingly raised by a family of apes, Tarzan's peaceful and sheltered world is turned upside down by the arrival of a human expedition. As he struggles to decide which "family" he belongs with, his dilemma is further complicated by his feelings for a beautiful young woman named Jane and the discovery that a trusted member of his new human "family" is plotting to harm the apes.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated - Tarzan is an animated version of the often-told ape man story. Kids will likely be attracted to both the adventure and the broad comedy; adults may be pleasantly surprised by the mature elements in the story line and the romance sub-plot. A few scenes may be a bit intense for very young children, but not far out of line with the dark subject matter in many other Disney films. Some adults may also find the broad comic relief jarring in an otherwise fairly mature story.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
After an opening ten minutes as mature and gripping as anything you could hope for in an animated film, Disney's Tarzan settles down to become a fairly typical kid-oriented film. There are moments when it's easy to forget you're watching a film marketed at children, from effective interpersonal moments to solid use of music. Then the comic relief appears, and you wish Disney would avoid the plush-toy-cute supporting characters. Tarzan is a solid piece of film-making on most levels; it's just hard not to wish Disney could let a mature story be a mature story.
