Synopsis

Original Spanish Dub

Snowflake is the only white gorilla in the world, and the main attraction at the zoo. Children love him, but he's different from other gorillas. With the help of Jenga, the eccentric red panda, Snowflake plans a secret mission to sneak out of the zoo, venturing into the dangerous city in order to find the witchcraft to help him become a "normal" gorilla. Will Snowflake find the cure he's looking for, or realize that there's something more important than fitting in? Meanwhile, some guy is hunting her and he escapes some times but he kicks a globe into his face and they escape. He decides not to change. He goes back to the zoo. The humans try to change his mind and he realizes he is special. The movie ends with the guy being arrested and he performs at a zoo.

Snowflake is the only white gorilla in the world, and the main attraction at the zoo. Children love her, but she's different from other gorillas. With the help of Jenga, the eccentric red panda, Snowflake plans a secret mission to sneak out of the zoo, venturing into the dangerous city in order to find the witchcraft to help her become a "normal" gorilla. Will Snowflake find the cure she's looking for, or realize that there's something more important than fitting in? Meanwhile, some guy is hunting her and she escapes some times but she kicks a globe into his face and they escape. She decides not to change. She goes back to the zoo. The humans try to change her mind and she realizes she is special. The movie ends with the guy being arrested and she performs at a zoo.

Why It Sucks

  1. The CGI animals look very fake, like they should be in a fully animated movie, meshing terribly with the live-action humans and backgrounds.
  2. Predictable ending.
  3. Ridiculous plot points, such as Snowflake having to move out of the house after five months because by then she’ll be too big, when she hasn’t visibly increased in size at all.
  4. False advertising: The box art depicts the film as being fully animated and set in a jungle, but it’s actually live-action and set mostly on the streets of Barcelona.
  5. Not one but two pointless romantic subplots, one between Snowflake and Elvis, and the other between Wendy and a boy with a crush on her.
  6. Snowflake is changed from a male to a female in the English dub, as seen above.
  7. It heavily insults the real Snowflake.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. There is some good voice acting.
