The Wild Thornberrys Movie – Jive

An animated kiddies' thing which, to my untrained eye, looks scarily like Rugrats, this is set in the African wilderness. And has elephants in it. So you don't need to trouble your inner genius to work out that Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour and Paul Simon will feature. "Father And Daughter" is the latter's first song for a film in 15 years, and he can still turn a lyric and craft a tune like an unlikely deft demi-god. He can even mumble "trust your intuition, it's just like goin'fishin'" and sound wry. It's no "Mrs Robinson" but it's warm as a puma's gums.

An animated kiddies’ thing which, to my untrained eye, looks scarily like Rugrats, this is set in the African wilderness. And has elephants in it. So you don’t need to trouble your inner genius to work out that Peter Gabriel, Youssou N’Dour and Paul Simon will feature. “Father And Daughter” is the latter’s first song for a film in 15 years, and he can still turn a lyric and craft a tune like an unlikely deft demi-god. He can even mumble “trust your intuition, it’s just like goin’fishin'” and sound wry. It’s no “Mrs Robinson” but it’s warm as a puma’s gums. The Pretenders and P Diddy stand up smartly, too.
