This is one great movie starring Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt.
28 September 1998 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

What are you people thinking with these ratings? This was a super movie filled with emotions, and finally a decent movie concerning man and monkey. Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt do a wonderful job, and the movie touches a part of your soul. Great film.
