Operation Dumbo Drop (1995)

We walked out after about an hour.  The slow, uninvolving story-- of an   
elephant's role in the Vietnam War-- is based on a real-life incident  
that was probably much more interesting than the sanitized version  
presented here.  (This is ABC/Disney, where even costar Denis Leary has  
to watch his mouth.)  The cast is agreeable, though, and director Simon  
Wincer-- how appropriate-- finds the correct tone to balance war and  
slapstick, which means that OPERATION DUMBO DROP is probably okay for  
kids.  Pachydull. 

Grade: W/O
