The funniest apes on this earth!!!
28 June 2000 | by (Muskego,Wis) – See all my reviews

Going Ape is one of best movies ever made. I believe people should reevaluate their vote on this fine movie. If anybody loves to watch a butch of crazy apes that are constantly getting into mischief, this is the movie for you!!!
