Tarzan 1999 ★★★

It gets better once Jane and the other humans arrive in the forest. Before that it's all over the place tonally - you get the sense the artists wanted to go darker and more epic, but were reined in and told to throw in some comic relief in the form of a neurotic elephant and an annoying ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell (seriously, why inflict that on us?), who for some reason is drawn to look like one of those troll dolls. Still, Glen Keane's animation of the adult Tarzan is exceptional, and overall it stands up as a harmless but fairly unremarkable entry in the post-renaissance Disney catalogue.
