"Tarzan" movie for the whole family. Orphaned and raised by a gorilla family, Tarzan (voiced by Tony Goldwyn) is determined to be “the best ape ever,” but like Hercules, he suffers the pains of awkward adolescence. He initially does not quite fit in, and the other apes even call him “the hairless wonder.” But his adoptive mother, Kala (Glenn Close), reassures him, “Forget what you see -- what do you feel?” The superb voice ensemble includes Minnie Driver as the spirited and independent Jane, Nigel Hawthorne as Jane's scientist father, and Lance Henrikson as Kerchack, the silverback patriarch who does not accept Tarzan. Wayne Knight, as Tarzan’s pachyderm pal, Tantor, and Rosie O’Donnell as a wisecracking ape, Terk, delivers the comic relief. Terk’s “Trashing the Camp” is a scat-singing showstopper; and the power ballad “You’ll Be in My Heart” earned an Oscar on its way to pop ubiquity.
