Back in the mid-90s, my wife and I decided we needed to spice up our marriage, so we began doing a bi-weekly "date night." We'd go out to eat at the local Golden Corral then go to the theatre to see a film. On our first "date night," we chose to see Disney's Operation Dumbo Drop, mainly based on the cast. I'm a huge lifelong fan of Danny Glover Predator 2, anyone?! and my wife absolutely loves Ray Liotta a little too much, I might add - hence the need to spice up our marriage - wocka wocka! .So we walked into the theatre with high expectations, and they were <more>
exceeded. This film takes place during the Vietnam War and is by far the most accurate depiction of wartime I've seen since M*A*S*H* , but if you're not a war-film buff, don't let that hold you back. The characters played by Liotta, Glover, and Denis Leary Who's the Man?, Demolition Man are on a mission to - get this! - deliver a live elephant across South Vietnam. Hilarity ensues.I won't give the rest of the film away, but let me leave you with this: Liotta, Glover and Leary deliver the finest acting of their respective careers. My wife and I absolutely adored this film. We laughed, we cried, we held hands the entire time. Had it not been for this breathtaking film, my wife and I might have gone our separate ways by now, and who knows who she'd be with today maybe Ray Liotta! .So what are you waiting for? Add this to your Netflix queue or take a trip to your local video rental center, because this movie is Operation MUST-SEE!

I had seen Operation Dumbo Drop when it first came out and thoroughly enjoyed it. I just watched it for the 2nd time and enjoyed it even more. The love shown between humans and animals deeply touched me. We hear horrible reports of our military personnel and form a profoundly negative opinion. Then a movie like this comes along and shows the heart and soul of the majority of our soldiers. I can't imagine living in a secluded village like that one. What's even harder to grasp is how they actually got the elephant and the boy back to the same village. The lengths they went to just to <more>
keep a promise speaks volumes about keeping your word. And it's even more unbelievable that it actually happened in real life. I could watch this movie 100 times and take something new from it each time. EXCELLENT STORYLINE AND MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember, it's a DISNEY movie BASED on a real event. (by majormadmax)
OK, many have criticized this little flick for not being the traditional ugly, violent Vietnam war flick that we have all come to except; but keep in mind that this is a DISNEY production BASED on a real operation, not a documentary of what happened.I do like this film for several reasons. First, it positively reflects the actions of the US military in Vietnam, whereas most movies on the subject don't portray our forces in the most positive manner. Secondly, it more accurately shows the mission of the Special Forces in working with indigenous peoples to counter an adversary, not the <more>
snake-eating, kill-everything-insight stereotype compounded by the Rambo series. Thirdly, I find the acting, dialogue and interactivity between the characters to be well done. This movie wasn't "dumbed down" to be family-friendly, it maintained a standard that showed Disney was serious about making a quality film.So it may not be historically perfect, and it may not fit into many's preconceptions as to what a Vietnam war film should address; but accepting it for what it was intended to be--a Disney film addressing positive subject matter--and criticizing it under those objectives makes the outcome a success in my book. If you want to see soldiers killing natives and burning villages there are plenty of other films that depict such acts, but if you want to watch a movie based on an actual operation by USSF to positively impact a Vietnamese village during the war that Operation Dumbo Drop is the best choice. It may not compare to Apocalypse Now or Full Metal Jacket, but it is not intended to be like those film; but judged on its own it succeeds in meeting its objectives!
Yes, I'm a bit behind in my movie watching. I lived in the Middle East for years and couldn't get movies. This is just a cute movie that can be watched with the entire family. The sad part for me and children is when the one elephant is shot and dies. I found this to be an entertaining movie, not engulfing or engrossing. It's rated PG for war violence, yet any child can see that on TV, the news or in their own school we've become a pitiful country . It was nice to see Danny and Ray in something besides a shoot-em-up or getting your brains eaten by Hannibal. If you just want <more>
a sit back and relax movie for the family, this is one of them. The fact that it's based on actual events is a bonus!
A handful of men decide to fulfill their promise agaist all odds (by you-99259)
Remember M.A.S.H? Did you like it? Then you'll probably like this one too! A truly American movie that has a certain European flair. No unnecessary deaths, a lot of human interaction, self deprecatory humor, admission of guilt, characters who out-grow their initial convictions... Some daring stunts, a few rather foreseeable but not disappointing plot changes... Not brilliant but an agreeable movie to watch with your entire family. And, most important of all, you'll end up wondering about 'why don't we all think some more about the consequences of our actions?'
