The stylized physiques and movements of the characters in this exciting animated musical-romance-adventure are at once realist and fantastic.
Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader, 2009-11-13
No classic, but very enjoyable.
Geoff Andrew, Time Out, 2006-06-24
Simply a smashingly well-done example of animated storytelling.
Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle, 2005-07-21
It's both a little scary and a lot funny, and kids will no doubt lap it up.
Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2004-02-21
So far, the most entertaining film of the year.
Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, 2002-06-18
Minnie Driver gives Jane a throaty, teasing allure that suggests nights in the jungle won't be Disney dull for the T-man.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2001-05-11
A rambunctious, visually arresting, occasionally poignant musical adventure!
Todd McCarthy, Variety, 2000-01-01
A swirling, fluid retelling of the tale that packs an impressive cargo of laughs, thrills and wonders into a watertight 88 minutes!
David Ansen, Newsweek, 2000-01-01
Though it relinquishes some of Disney's toehold on an adult audience for animation, Tarzan is sprightly and likable in ways that are hard to resist.
Janet Maslin, New York Times, 2000-01-01
Entertaining and spectacular!
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2000-01-01
Tarzan will thrill and inspire children and their parents alike.
Sean Means, Film.com, 2000-01-01
Disney's Tarzan is animation gold!
Susan Stark, Detroit News, 2000-01-01
Adroit vocal casting, an entertaining script, an unexpectedly energetic soundtrack, and some splendid technical breakthroughs.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 2000-01-01
Disney's most elegant animated 'classic' in years!
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 2000-01-01
Disney's Tarzan is not only the summer's most thrilling mainstream movie so far, it's also the best animated feature the studio has put out since The Lion King.
Rod Dreher, New York Post, 2000-01-01
Tarzan is both lush and bustling!
Robert Horton, Film.com, 2000-01-01
Something deep within the Tarzan myth speaks to us, and Disney's new animated Tarzan captures it.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01
Travels light, moves quickly and leaves very little in its wake.
Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2002-03-22
Perhaps Disney thought the best way to get around the ooga-booga stereotype was to eliminate blacks altogether.
Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2000-01-01
Tarzan is the cinematic equivalent of a Cajun McChicken sandwich - it's a little bit bold, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of McMovie.
Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz, 2000-01-01
