Despite bad reviews from the critics, The Lion King roared at the box to the sound of $185 million.
The movie surpassed all expectations and is now the 9th highest grossing film.
The Lion King now has the largest July opening for a PG movie.
Critics hated the movie so much that it received a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes.
One of the complaints is that the lions do not have any facial expressions. In the cartoon version they were very expressive.
