    loved it

    I had to watch this a few years ago in middle school because my science teacher was OBSESSED with elephants. I was drawn to Reese because I had known her from Legally Blonde, so I paid attention. I found that I really really like this movie!!! It sort of reminded me of an updated African Queen only in the desert and with younger stars. It's definitely worth the look.
