    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    A recitation of woes doesn't constitute a plot, and panoramic shots of migrating wildlife don't convey enough African flavor.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    There is a lack of drama and telling detail. When events happen, they seem more like set pieces than part of the flow.

    USA Today Susan Wloszczyna

    While Basinger admirably invests her role with deep passion and looks splendid in her Kenya khakis, the true story she stars in is disappointingly tame and dramatically inert.

    Chicago Tribune

    Doesn't have much plot. It just sort of meanders around like a wildebeest playing Blind Man's Bluff.
