We have always enjoyed the animation and story and music, especially the exuberance of Baloo and patience of Bagheera with the typical boy-child Mowgli. ( )

A terrible adaptation of the book in every way, but a fine example of that not necessarily making for a bad movie. The score is gorgeous, the characters memorable, the visuals stunning, and it all happens at a brisk enough pace that the rather thin plot never gets overly worn. ( )

A boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle is hated by a tiger.

I'm not nuts about it, but it's pleasant and has enough redeeming bits (like dancing monkeys, evil Sterling Holloway, and generally good character animation).
