Absolutely pitiful attempt at something that's been done before - and better
17 May 2003 | by (Dorset, England) – See all my reviews

The basic premise behind this drivel is simple. Kid's Mom has died, has new Step-mom, makes friends with gorilla, gorilla gets shot, gorilla gets better, everything works out just fine. Except that is, for the film itself. Fan's of this genre of film would do better to avoid this and go for the far superior "Born to be Wild". Even Malcolm in the Middle's Justin Berfield (Reece), who is usually pretty good, can't hold this dreadful film together. He manages to pull off a couple of nice emotive scenes, but that's about it. The gorilla is about as convincing as a trash can in a dress, the music is lousy, the direction is tired and dull, and the less said about the script the better. Not even worth catching on TV.
