90,000 Baboons? True Story?
29 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is suppose to tell the true tale about how 90,000 baboons went on a killing spree because of a severe drought in 1984. This movie bombed badly at the theaters. And it bombs badly as a movie itself. Did this really happen, I don't know. This movie is good for a laugh.
