Really cannot say anything good about this movie
27 August 2006 | by (Oakland CA USA) – See all my reviews

We picked this for family movie night this past Friday.

Afterwards, I turned to my husband and said, "I'm sure this could have been worse, but I can't imagine how." Our sons, five and nine, didn't seem to mind, but we didn't like the idea of them being exposed to such rot. This may go down in movie history as Roddy McDowell's "Trog" ; the unlamented last film that Joan Crawford made.

Bad story, badly written, poorly acted, chimpanzees _in India_, rewriting Kipling - it never stopped. I can't think of much more to say, but the system requires additional lines.

Pass it up.
