  • The plucky, pigtailed Eliza Thornberry (voiced by Lacey Chabert) and her high-strung chimpanzee pal (Tom Kane) are out to stop some poachers in this feature film version of the Nickelodeon TV cartoon show. While her family is off on a trek through the Serengeti in their high-tech, gadget-filled RV, Eliza is sent off to a stuffy English boarding school by her strict grandmother (Lynn Redgrave). Poor Eliza must figure out how to escape back to Africa and put a stop to the aforementioned evil poachers, all without her special ability to talk to the animals, a power she lost because of her obnoxious sister Debbie (Danielle Harris). Produced and animated by Klasky-Csupo (the team responsible for THE RUGRATS MOVIE) the THORNBERRYS' colorful 2D animation style is refreshingly simplistic, yet still manages to depict its jungle settings with surprisingly vivid intensity. Youngsters should be consistently engaged and adults will appreciate the high zaniness level, rapid-fire plotting, and absence of cloying sentiment. Celebrity voices include: Rupert Everett, Tim Curry, Marisa Tomei, and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea as Eliza's little brother Donnie, a gibbering wild child raised by apes. The soundtrack includes tunes by Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon.
