Ten years after conquering the Earth, ape leader Caesar wants the ruling apes and enslaved humans to live in peace. But warring factions of apes led by a militant gorilla general as well as various human groups threaten the stability.
J. Lee Thompson
The world is shocked by the appearance of three talking chimpanzees, who arrived mysteriously in a U.S. spacecraft. They become the toast of society; but one man believes them to be a threat to the human race.
In a futuristic world that has embraced ape slavery, Caesar, the son of the late simians Cornelius and Zira, surfaces after almost twenty years of hiding out from the authorities, and prepares for a slave revolt against humanity.
J. Lee Thompson
Tarzan (Lord Greystoke), already well educated and fed up with civilization, returns to the jungle and, more-or-less assisted by chimpanzee Cheetah and orphan boy Jai, wages war against poachers and other bad guys.

I've never watched the short-lived '70s TV series of PLANET OF THE APES that they made, but on the strength of this, I'm glad I didn't bother. LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT ON THE PLANET OF THE APES is a crummy title for a crummy TV movie, one that's stitched together two random episodes of the TV show in a bid to make more cash for the money-grubbing producers.
The two episodes have nothing in common, making this disjointed. It's also extremely boring. The quality of the writing is very poor, the characters are dull, and both episodes seem to be completely sub-standard in every respect. There's no intrigue here, no action, no suspense, just bored cast members working at a strictly amateur level. It's just awful.
