With Lion just released we were excited that we’d get to see a bit of jungle wildlife. There wasn’t a single bloody lion in sight though! Talk about false advertising – just like these classic flicks…

THE PINK PANTHER (1963)

The Pink Panther (1963)

Anything with Peter Sellers in it has to be good. But this would have been so much better if it had an actual panther in it!

 

ICE STATION ZEBRA (1968)

Ice Station Zebra (1968)

Ice? Check. Station? Check. Zebra? Nowhere to be seen. What a rip!

 

LONE WOLF MCQUADE (1983)

Lone Wolf McQuade (1983)

Hey, Chuck Norris doesn’t look even remotely wolf-like! Well, maybe the facial growth.

 

RESERVOIR DOGS (1992)

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

A bunch of colourful chaps with guns and knives. Where are the dogs? Actually, where’s the reservoir for that matter?!

 

12 MONKEYS (1995)

12 Monkeys (1995)

Bruce Willis, time travel and an icky virus can’t make up for a lack of monkeys, let alone 12 of them!

 

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON (2000)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)

A double banger this one. There’s romance, fighting, lush scenery… but no tigers OR dragons!
