Not that anyone particularly cares about Disney flicks, probably, but I
thought I'd chime in early on this one.

I took my kids to see Tarzan over the weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed
it. I'm not much of a fan of animated feature films, and Disney flicks
usually bore me. This one, somehow, was different.

It didn't hurt that Phil Collins did the music (rather than what's his
name -- Alan Menkin, I think). I've been a Phil fan for a whole lot of
years, now, and the music in this film does him proud. The music and
the stunning visuals nicely compliment each other.

The wide, panoramic views of the island were breathtaking -- the animated
water was perfect. The "surfing" scenes (where Tarzan is cruising
through the jungle on vines and tree limbs, often backwards) were a joy
to watch. Jane was cute (Minne Driver's voice doesn't hurt). :-)

While some reviewers found Rosie O'Donnell's voice to be a nuisance, I
thought she really added to the flick (she was Tarzan's sidekick, though
his early years).

In all, I really liked this movie.
