Product Description

Based on the true story of Gertrude 'Trudy' Lintz (Rene Russo), an eccentric socialite who, with her husband Bill (Robbie Coltrane) and assistant Dick (Alan Cumming), delights in sharing her home with a bunch of apes and monkeys. Trudy's favourite is Buddy, a cheeky gorilla who gets himself into all sorts of scrapes.

From Amazon.co.uk

Based on the life of Gertrude Lintz, a Long Island socialite who kept an amazing menagerie of animals on her estate, this very able film by Caroline Thompson (Black Beauty) concentrates on Lintz's relationship with a gorilla named Buddy, whom she raised from infancy on. The film is geared toward kids but in the very best sense as Thompson orchestrates some very entertaining sequences without cutting corners on logic, the way most forms of children's entertainment do today. Rene Russo is very good as the eccentric woman, and Robbie Coltrane is uncharacteristically warm and fuzzy as her patient husband. Nice support work from Alan Cumming and the rest of the cast. Thompson is aiming for something akin to the live-action glory days of Disney, and she comes close to achieving it. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Despite its low 80 minute runtime, Buddy is unfortunately a poorly paced and slow movie about an animal loving woman (Rene Russo) who raises a gorilla alongside her horses, dogs, ducks, cats and chimpanzees until it terrorises the Chicago State Fair. Supposedly based on true events, the story is as formulaic as they come, suffering from a standardised script and poor structure. Despite this, Russo and Robbie Coltrane put in a couple of reasonable performances to stop the film becoming too stale and the mechanised Buddy made by the Jim Henson Company looks good, if unspectacular. The chimpanzees have a couple of funny moments and the set design is worthy of a nod, but the story is just too slow and boring to keep anybody entertained. Skip it. 2/5

THIS WAS A HEARTWARMING FILM FOR ALL THE FAMILY TO ENJOY. THE ANIMALS FEATURED WOULD CAPTURE THE HEART OF ANY CHILD. FOR ALL ANIMAL LOVERS OUT THERE, THIS FILM MUST BE SEEN.
