very educational and heart-warming. Tim Allen as the narrator was fantastic, especially when he was talking about "tools". My kids loved it (3.5 and 6.5 y/o).

I took my 4 kids to see this film and we ALL LOVED IT! Their ages are 6, 9, 11, 12 and I'm 42 and we were all so moved by the story and by the amazing cinematography. WOW! It's so beautiful and wild and primal. Everyone should see this film and be awed by the chimp community; their fierce love, sense of community, and sacrifice for the betterment of the group. Really amazing. Humans could learn so much if we could just get over our arrogance at being the "smarter" species.

I had the opportunity to watch the movie this weekend with my kids (8 and 6) and husband. My girls and me were very touched with the story. Myself and my 6 years old girl cried.
I recommend everyone to get some time (1 hours and 15 min.) to watch, the message was wonderful.

Chimpanzee is truly awesome and truly touching as we follow the life of Oscar, a very young Chimp. It involves the trials, tribulations and learning experience Oscar is on which is so almost human it is remarkable. The photography and film crew did an amazing job being so close to the chimps and placing the viewer among them. It is truly remarklable. I did not like Tim Allen's narration, to be honest. It took away from the experience for me. It was his overdone tone & the script, geared for the very young, Other than that, it is a great film and I left in awe, wonder, and gratitude for these amazingly intelligent creatures who display such care for each other and a sense of community and belonging that we humans could learn from and practice more. Kudos to the film crew, make sure you stay thru the credits to see what the film crew went thru. This is a wonderful film for all ages. I left with appreciation and admiration for these amazing and intelligent creatures.
