This was the worst movie ever. It was sad, and boring. Scary storms and dying mothers. It was horrible and I don't even know why someone would ever see it or even make a movie on this. The ants were DISGUSTING! Yeah the chimpanzee was cute, but they would…. kill monkeys! Never bring a child that is young! I think this movie is 13+. It is intense and very mature. I thought the narrator was annoying. There also was a war type of thing going on with the chimpanzees and the "rebels" It was ADORABLE how they named the chimpanzees, but the rest wasn't good. The clips of seeing the jungle were beautiful but that only was sometimes.

Loved this movie. It was short. I wish it was a little longer. But I am just so thrilled that I had a part in helping out the Jane Goodall Foundation. (as you know every ticket sold, she will donate money to the cause).
I love anything to do with the wild, Jane Goodall, chimpanzees and gorillas.
I met Jane Goodall years ago at a Peace Day festival at Griffin Park. She is such an inspiration. She also did her chimpanzee call.
This movie really depicts how closely related we all are. WE have feelings, have relationships with our family and our group. Chimpanzees are so intelligent. Just to watch them solve problems, such as finding food or the best way to fish food out of small crevices or how to break nuts open is just so mind blowing. They look and act in ways that mimic human personalities. It is a must see...and must buy if it's ever available to purchase.

Chimpanzee was a wonderful family movie that I would recommend for any family with children of any age. It was an exciting trip to follow a tiny baby Chimpanzee through it's trials and tribulations. It also is exceptionally rewarding to see how much love and devotion Chimpanzee's have for one another. The cinematography is breathtaking. It was well worth the trip to the theater!!

I am so glad Disney has decided to make nature documentaries this good. A splendid bit of editing to make a sweet story from excellent on-site footage. The filmakers don't sidestep the less than pretty aspects of chimp society: they're not solely vegetarian, nor always peaceful. But-- as an adult who's about 5-years-old when it comes to the harsh or icky parts-- I was pleased to be spared seeing anything graphic. (I cover my eyes during most of the "lioness gets the gazelle" scenes on Animal Planet.)
And I won't be spoiling anything by telling you there's a happy ending.
