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.
