Trivia

When Garrett catches up with Teri as she is about to drive to the airport the license plate on her car reads BDR 529, the same plate as the Bluesmobile from The Blues Brothers. See more »

Goofs

The leather jacket Jimmy Garret wears is actually a Navy G-1 flight jacket worn by Navy aircrew. The Air Force did not begin issuing leather flying jackets to aircrew (theirs, being the A-2) until 1988, one year after the release of this film. See more »

"the genes for chimpanzees are 98% equivalent to humans"
27 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Willie, the chimpanzee actor, is really great. Young Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt are also dynamic as sensitive human beings. This is only barely comedy, as the war of machines and their human servants against Mother Nature and her children is still being waged and taking victims.
