  • Why waste the price of a movie ticket when you can see wildebeests cavorting for free from the comfort of your own recliner?

  • Consist of little more than people arguing or clambering in and out of dusty Land Rovers.

  • Plods along in the Oscar-winning, yawn-inducing tradition of "Out of Africa," making me yearn for something less "National Geographic."
