| Emarrassed for James Franco, Amazed at the level of terrible
This is literally the worst movie ever made. I like James Franco and I'm always pulling for someone to succeed but lordy be, I'm stupefied by both the 225,000 dollar budget of this movie and that someone thought it was a good idea to sell it in bulk. The ape is ridiculous, his mouth doesn't move, they just don't show his face when he speaks, not to mention, they become almost lovers by the end? Was no one else extremely uncomfortable with the apogee of this plot? The plausible nature is already out the window as he moves out of his house just to write a book?

The movie just got worse as it went along and despite my hopes for something whimsically odd, it just turned sad. I bought it as a joke. Up until now I thought the Gingerdead Man starring Gary Busey was the worst movie I've seen, I stand corrected. You may step down and take the silver medal, Gary Busey.

Just sayin.
