This animated musical remake of the 1933 classic King Kong is definitely for the younger crowd, who will appreciate the tuneful but generic score by Richard and Robert Sherman (better known for Mary Poppins and other Disney scores) and won't get upset by the happy ending. Dudley Moore hams it up as the show-biz impresario seeking the great ape and The Little Mermaid's spirited Jodi Benson lends her pipes as the out-of-work actress who becomes the object of Kong's affections. The animation is clunky, Saturday-morning quality and the dialogue strictly juvenile, but the colorful visuals and scary (but not too scary) monsters make it engrossing viewing for kids. --Sean Axmaker
