Terrible!
16 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the worst I've ever seen. It was hard for me to just sit still in my seat, it was so lame.

Despite a temporarily funny picture of the gorilla (Zamora) in "human" clothing, she was so unrealistic both in appearance and behavior that it was impossible to get interested in the story.

As for the actors, Justin Berfield (Timmy Blair) did pretty well considering the poor script, but just about every other actor and their script was also impossible to buy. There was no apparent effort put into making the story and film realistic. The movie was poorly done, plain and simple.

This film could be described as very amateur and a waste of time.
