The Ballad of the Fake Gorilla
21 February 2003 | by (Quietude, In the state of Nirvana) – See all my reviews

To be honest I only watched it because it has the Kid from Malcom in the Middle. The Grollia is so fake it's kind of Freaky, and it feels so weird that in this Justin is a sweet Twelve year old but in Malcom in the Middle he's a roughy toughy punk.

Something that really Puzzles me is that why did a guy who directed a God Awful B-Grade Politically Incorrect Pornographic Horror Film. (Evil Toons) direct a sweet Family Movie starring an odd looking Gorilla. Well, I guess some things should be left unexplained...
