Alternative Character Interpretation: At the risk of ruining a funny joke... early on in the film, only one of the four African guides seems to be able to speak English, despite it being confirmed that the other three can at least understand it. Midway through the film, when the trio reveal that they can speak it, their boss, Kwame, gives them a look. Whether this is a look of genuine surprise that they actually can speak English or annoyance that they had ruined a long-standing joke they were playing on Lyle is up to the viewer to decide.
Better Than It Sounds: Has something of a reputation as being the only good live action film based on a cartoon.
So Okay, It's Average: The general view of the Disney film. Most of the praise goes to the film at least being faithful to its source material.
What An Idiot: In the second movie, the villains have Ursula hypnotized into believing she's married to Lyle, but they never think of hypnotizing Junior too. Also, Junior never thinks of telling his mother that George is his real father until near the end.
Tropes for the 2007 Animated series
