Jeremiah 29:11 & Psalm 139:14

When Kala showed Tarzan "the strongest tree in the jungle," it reminded me of how each branch is different, yet they help keep the tree strong enough to weather out any storm, just as how God created each individual with different personalities, talents, and gifts for His purpose (See Jeremiah 29:11 and Psalm 139:14).

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Like Disney's other Tarzan films, this one is full of topographical enjoyment and rollercoaster-like rides through the forest that provide a real rush. There are delightfully cute baby gorillas and a pair of hopelessly stupid adolescents that add some comedy into the mix, though the best lines are contributed by Tarzan's pink elephant pal, whose histrionics and liberal use of clichés are hysterical.

Importantly, this animated movie is much less about Tarzan gaining acceptance or changing the minds of those gorillas who doubted his capacity to survive than it is about him acknowledging his unique talents and recognizing the enduring love of those friends and family who would never have abandoned him. His stages of self-understanding are punctuated without subtlety by the music of Phil Collins, but there are plenty of fun sequences in which Tarzan emulates other animals and acquires his renowned lassoing and vine-swinging techniques.
