Actors: Debi Derryberry, Anne Archer, Angela Bassett, Betty White

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Whispers - An Elephant's Tale

I rented this film because I like elephants. While I didn't expect “Discovery Channel” standards, I was expecting to see male elephants. However, the ladies were fine, although I could not accept Derryberry as the voice of the obnoxious Whispers. I was impressed with the editing of live Botswanan native elephants which showed the birth and early development of Whispers, and his early acceptance into the herd. But, as a strapping “380-pound baby boy,” Whispers is a cocky kid who often talks back to his elders. When Whispers' mother, Gentle Heart (Archer), is stalked by the dreaded “takers” who destroy elephants for their tusks, she flees and promises to return to him. Add to constant threats from poachers, voracious lion prides, drought and threats of fire. It's not a good time to be an orphan on your own. Whispers does, however, find the elder “Groove” (Bassett) who wants no part of this brat. But Whispers won't take no for an answer, and eventualy earns a chance to prove himself by demonstrating a skill his original herd believed he'd lacked.
