A great, great movie for everyone! Most excellent!
30 July 2001 | by daisyduke8000See all my reviews

I grew up with this movie. Watching it on Family Channel after school,during the summer with my friends, many times. I'm glad I have so many memories attached to such a great movie. It's about a deaf boy who dislikes his stepfather, but is close to his Mom and sister. A orangutang named Dolly who knows sign language(!) escapes from her owner and finds her way to the kids' treehouse. It takes your emotions everywhere: one minute you're laughing, the next you're crying. The friendship between Dolly and the kids is so nice. A great family movie, there's nothing to worry about like bad language, etc. You can pop it in the VCR and go about your chores, etc. and not have to worry about the kids seeing something bad . Although don't be suprised if you decide to forget about the chores and watch it with them! It appeals to people ages 0-100. It's not a movie only for children. I totally recommend it to everyone!
