Quite possibly the gayest movie I have ever seen
8 July 2003 | by jimbo25202See all my reviews

This movie is a cheap attempt to arouse concern for environmental issues. In it, 4 young animals and their teacher go for a walk in the woods, and one of them falls into a coma after a tanker-truck accident leaves the forest in ruins. The only way to save her is with the use of rare medical herbs, but all the plants in the area have been wiped out. This sets the stage for an adventurous and dangerous quest to save the young "furling" before its too late. The only people who will want to watch this movie are little kids, and it deals with some mature issues, such as death, pollution, and the whole concept of humans destroying nature. Parents may enjoy it too, but i would only recommend it to mature young kids or eco-activists.
