On a tiny exotic island an outgoing parrot lives with his quirky animal friends in paradise. However he can't stop dreaming about discovering the world. After a violent storm him and his friends wake up to find a strange creature on the beach: Robinson Crusoe. He immediately views him as his ticket off the island.
Animated Adventure Comedy - This animated comedy based loosely on Robinson Crusoe is aimed
at families but above all children. The PG rating is due to a couple
of scenes of alcohol drinking, with everything else falling into
all-ages-friendly G rating territory. There are no name actors in
the voice cast.

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average The film tries to pack in a little bit too much in its running time, and there isn't a comedic moment until well into the film, a strange choice in a movie for kids, but "The Wild Life" has its moments of charm, hilarity, and slapstick...
NY PostFull Review Poor ...so dull, the kids in my audience didn't laugh until 45 minutes in — And that was at a coconut head-bonk, a gag so timeless it almost doesn't count. A pair of villainous shipwrecked cats provides what little plot there is via a tiresome series of chases, while Crusoe himself is so generic he's almost a nonentity. Perhaps that's why he was written out of the title.
