Although this is the worst Lion King movie out of the three...

It is not bad. All of them are good. Anyways, sensitive children will be upset when Timon leaves his family and Pumbaa has no family. But Timon leaving his family will seem funny to tweens. (GOODBYE MOM!!!!!!!) And hours later, (BOO HOO!!!!!! I WANT MOMMY!!!!!) Also, it is best for kids whose favorite characters being Timon and Pumbaa to watch this. It is also the funniest out of the three. (More potty talk)

A Disappointment.

I was disappointed with Lion King 1 1/2, I liked Lion King II much better. The potty humour is just boring and immature, and takes away from the film. This movie lacks the life lessons that the other 2 movies taught. Generally, however, it's harmless entertainment for the kiddies.

Rated U (very mild threat).

SEX/NUDITY - None. VIOLENCE/GORE - Occasional very mild slapstick. PROFANITY - None. DRINKING/DRUGS/SMOKING - None. THREAT/HORROR - A scene at the end shows hyenas threatening to eat some of the protagonists, however this is not very frightening and is quickly resolved. One of the characters also frequently expresses his fear of the hyenas, but this is handled comically.

Its ok but don't like how it ruins some of the lion kings scenes

It's an ok movie I don't hate it but it ruins some of the scenes in the lion king. I don't like how Pumba farts during the circle of life. Or how the movie makes fun of can you feel the love tonight

I like it!

There were some great messages in this movie, however there is violence and some potty humor. The hyenas may scare some children and the fact that Timone and Pumbaa don't have family may upset them as well.

disappionting!no wonder why they won't make a fourth lion king movie!

ugh!this ruined the whole lion king!it made fun of can you feel the love tonight,and most of the movie!i love pumbaa,but timon is a stupid,itiotic,retard who cares for no one but him self.Timon didn't even care if who/what left him,or if Simba was king or not.All because of Simba going back to be king,Timon got mad at Rafiki and Nala because he thought they MADE him leave,then he got mad at Pumbaa for going to fallow Simba,because Timon thought everyone was againts him.he's an annoying innmature joking.dont recomend it,i just have the DVD and VHS because i wanted to collect the whole trilogy(wich i did, have all 3),and for my TLK collection.don't recommend it -.-

You'll laugh like a lot!

This is a very funny movie. Quit your critisism and be nice! My parents like it, I like it, it's very funny. Scatological humor & pratfalls are FUNNY. The stopping and starting is HILARIOUS! My parents aren't annoyed by it, in fact, they LOVE hearing them stop & start the movie so they can run their mouths. Plus, the relatability factor to certain kids ("HE TAKES THINGS LITERALLY!!!" is one of the lines like that in my family) will make them laugh like certain voice chips on dolls. Trust me. I should know. In addition, your little "the other meerkats make fun of Timon" is no match for my "yeah, but when Timon accidently saves the day in the end, they change their Diggah Tunnuh song to include things like 'Sing the praises of great Timon, greatest meerkat we've ever known'". So, you see? It's FUNNY.

"Ooh, that violates so many laws of canon!"

Many fans of the original Lion King will most likely come to hate this movie because of its canonical violations. Simba practically grew up in a day, Timon was down distracting the hyenas when they should've been ganging up on scar, and the presentation for the "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" clip is put together rather... oddly. This being the reason I envision the movie of having a canon of its own. There's a long list of negatives I could be noting down right now about what's wrong with this movie. But I'll choose not to mention them. The one great thing that I feel confident enough to say out loud is that it's really, genuinely funny. I mean, sure, it makes no freaking sense but doesn't that make it even funnier? Just, really, think about it.

A BIG Disappointment For Me

I was kind of expecting better. During the movie I was face-palming. It was such ridiculous shots at humor, that I basically killed myself watching this. Timon and Pumbaa are my faves, so I was hoping that their movie would have more mature humor like the others, which was what I was expecting. I only laughed at few parts. So, yeah, I couldn't DARE call this a sequel, really disappointing.

Hakuna Matata!

Sorry,I just had to post the quote since I like the song :). Anyway, this film was okay (most Disney classic sequels aren't as good as the first), but I do like it how it took the movie from the perspective from Timon and Pumba. But there was too much potty humor in it for me. There isn't a lot of violence, but there still is some. It's less than the first film, but it still has some other violence from the first film, like the hyneas attacking. Overall it was okay.
