Operation Dumbo Drop (1995)

Recommended Posts

Had a look around and didn't see anyone else suggesting it, so I had to throw it up. This is the very first movie I remember seeing as a kid and just hating. Please rip it apart!

My Dad used to be a Manager for Walmart and some days after school we would be taken up to the store. There was a training room in the back where they would watch training videos, but on these days we’d get to go back there and watch a movie.  This was the only film back there. Ive watched it at least 20 times.  I remember nothing about it other than they shove a tranquilizer up the elephants butt.

Yikes. You have my sympathies. 

 

And, I don't if this makes it better or worse, but apparently it's based on a true story as well. http://www.spokesman.com/stories/1995/jul/31/elephant-airlift-the-story-behind-dumbo-drop-is/

I had to google "Bill Murray elephant movie" because I had no idea. Looks like Larger than Life is going in the queue.

Apparently Tai the Elephant had a multi picture deal, because oddly enough its the same elephant in both movies.

That elephant had a great agent.

She really did, in a span of four years she was in the original live action Jungle King, Dumbo Drop, Larger Than Life, and George of the Jungle. Which is a pretty solid run.

This film it just bad, I remember seeing it as a kid and thinking what is this. Then never seeing it again until a couple of years ago when I spotted it and thought I would give it a re-watch as it couldnt be as bad as I remembered... nope it is actually even worse
