An excellent film showing chimp intelligence and some human-like behavior.

I loved it. The chimps and humans have more in common than I ever realized.

Entertainment Weekly
No amount of gorgeous jungle footage can make up for the fact that this Disney-produced documentary feels about as natural as an episode of "The Hills," though with (slightly) more feral characters. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
The astonishing footage of apes in their natural environment is made perfectly accessible and then nearly undone by a narration track that plays to the audience's basest desires for gag-inducing cuteness. Full Review

USA Today
It's unfortunate that the filmmakers juxtapose those striking visuals with a warlike anthropomorphizing element. Full Review

Time Out New York
No one's asking for a somber account of simian life, but perhaps Buzz Lightyear could keep quiet for a bit and let the monkey business speak for itself. Full Review

To experience Chimpanzee, the latest piece of gorgeously shot pablum from Disneynature, is to endure an orgy of cuteness pasted over some of the most asinine narration ever to ruin a wildlife movie. Full Review
