Saw it last night, and it was funny, poignant, and touching, with about ten laugh-out loud moments for me. Lots of clever references, from Chariots of Fire to Planet of the Apes, and excellent CGI.
All in all, it’s one of those films marketed to youngsters but that will also appeal to their parents, like the scene where the monkeys exploit the zoo-break:
“It says here Tom Wolfe is speaking at the Lincoln Center.”
:second monkey signs furiously:
“Well, of COURSE we’re going to throw poo at him!”
Anyone else care to weigh in?
