Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie is pretty bad all around: script, plot, dialogue, accents, characters, special effects, and the ridiculous talking gorilla.  I felt bad for Laura Linney and Ernie Hudson while I was watching this film. They’re both so much better than this disaster. I’ve seen Sphere and Timeline so I know that Hollywood can royally screw up a Michael Crichton adaptation, but it’s sad to see another film added to that unfortunate list.

Final Grade: D-
