Romeo & Juliet – A Monkey’s Tale (Animal Planet)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Main Program: C+



Animal Planet has decided to issue on DVD a simple program of theirs (43 minutes) a tale about two different types of warring monkey groups and what happens when two of the opposite sex become involved.  As overly obvious as it is to reference Shakespeare, they have entitled it Romeo & Juliet – A Monkey’s Tale and it is both watchable and fine in showing this simple look at behavior in primates.


This might not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but is a basic disc with the whole program and that is all you get.


The letterboxed 1.78 X 1 image is soft and should have been anamorphic, but one suspects that the source might not have been that good to begin with.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is adequate and there are no extras.
