Disneynature, as a brand, has seized upon an ingenious opportunity to tap into the wildlife film market by crafting heartwarmingly human narratives out of the experiences of various members of the animal kingdom.

With narration from Tina Fey, Monkey Kingdom sounds like a race to the top of 30 Rock. (Opens wide Friday, April 17) (G) Not reviewed
