I loved this movie as did my 10 year old daughter. We laughed, we cried, we thought it was a little too short. We could all learn something from Freddy and Oscar. Defintely stay until the very end - funny scenes show the film makers trekking through the rainforest. A little intense at times but OMG what a breathtaking film. I've been telling every one that I know to go and see this movie.

Not Thomas (the Tank) or Waldo...but Oscar- he is cute!

Hopefully there's a category to give this film an Oscar. It's a winner- great photography, captivating story, and educational to boot! Don't walk out until the credits have finished... there's some interesting and important information about the making of the film as well as the status of chimps in the world today. Take the whole family!

Very touching and amazing how they were able to film everything. Really enjoyed it. The aggressive scenes may be a little intense for young children, but they did a good job editing while still being able to capture the true story.

This movie is very enlightning. I was not aware that Chimpanzees had their own sections of the jungle. I was very impressed with the filming of this movie. The camera was able to capture very intimate moments with these animals and it was wonderful to experience. Who won't fall in love with Oscar and his darling little face. I took my grand daughter who is 8 my 2 sisters one is 87 and the other is 75 and my friend who has dimentia and we all loved it to pieces.

Very good movie, held my attention throughout. Took my three grandchildren, good for the 8 year old but the 6 and 4 year olds got a little bored.
