A young inductee into the military is given the task of looking after some chimpanzees used in the mysterious "Project X". Getting to know the chimps fairly well, he begins to suspect there is more to the secret project than he is being told. Written by

As the emotional sounds that chimps make do not in any way resemble those of humans, it was decided to create their vocalizations using actors. Every chimp sound in the picture, other than one very brief outburst, is ADR. The role of Goliath, the giant ape, was voiced by the African-American actor Arthur Burghardt, who played Dr. Jack Scott on One Life to Live (1968) and the smallest female chimp, Daisy, was voiced by Anne Lockhart of Battlestar Galactica (1978) fame. Norman B. Schwartz was the vocal effects director. See more »

This is one great movie starring Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt.
What are you people thinking with these ratings? This was a super movie filled with emotions, and finally a decent movie concerning man and monkey. Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt do a wonderful job, and the movie touches a part of your soul. Great film.
