Movie Reviews

Hilarious, amazing, couldn't stop laughing
Jordan Cooper | NY | 08/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is hysterical!! It's dark and funny, surreal and smart. The scenes without the Ape aren't as great as the scenes with, but they are still carried by very strong performances and funny dialogue. James Franco is such a bizarre and original actor, imagine how he acts directing HIMSELF!!

The timing and interplay between him and the Ape is classic. Some of the best scenes ever put to film. The movie breezes by and me and my friends couldn't stop laughing and smiling for all 90 minutes.

It's not without it's flaws, but the hilarious scenes and moments with the Ape gave me more joy and pleasure than I've taken out of a movie in the past 5 years.

See this movie!!

"If you Think James Franco is a Hottie then you'll like this movie. Cause its just him. But if you like His acting you'll also like this movie. He really shows off his acting skills. It shows that he can really do a comedy. The only Problem was in the some parts in the movie the camera angles are not that great and a little shakey. But other then that its a really great movie and there is a bouns feature where James Franco talks about the making of the movie."
Clever, hilarious...

"I have respected James Franco as an exceptional actor since "Freaks and Geeks" and have seen almost all of his work. He is amazing in his ability to transform himself so believably from one role to another. This movie shows the spectrum of his talents. He has such ability to be so intense and yet can be comedic... all in the same scene! I was thrilled with "The Ape". I don't think I stopped smiling the whole time. I especially enjoyed his interactions with his fellow office worker when they were discussing their "out of the office" lives. I believe James will be one of the great talents of our time.
See this movie! You won't be disappointed."
