Editorial Reviews

Sharply surreal and wickedly funny, James Francos darkly satiric directorial debut pits man against beast in the harrowing wilds...of a New York City apartment. Harry Walker (Franco) is trying to write a novel, and finds a new place to get some time alone... only to discover that a talking, Hawaiian-shirt clad gorilla is living in his midst. Despite the added distraction of lice, gorilla wet willies and flying excrement, The Ape pushes Harry to fulfill his dreams; but perhaps at the cost of his sanity.

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!!

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.

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.

This movie was surprisingly funny. I never thought James Franco could be funny, but there was some great dialogue in the film. If you can appreciate an independent film, I would recommend this movie. It has some profound things to say about the writer and humans in general. It might also help to love Franco:) It's a fresh look at the double theme, and, for that, I give Franco credit.
