Chloe, a diamond-clad Beverly Hills Chihuahua, enjoys her luxurious lifestyle so much she hardly notices Papi, a hilarious Chihuahua who happens to be crazy for her.

This Academy Award®-winning adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan (Tony Goldwyn) is adopted by a family of gorillas.

Together with his wisecracking ape buddy Terk (Rosie O’Donnell) and neurotic elephant pal Tantor (Wayne Knight), Tarzan learns how to swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His two worlds collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a “civilized” life with beautiful Jane (Minnie Driver) and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family.
