Oh that Ape of Mine

For a family flick, this has some scenes that would not be good for young children. Two times the gorilla becomes violent which might be too scary. The chimpanzees steal the show by adding humor. The story does not quite end in the usual fuzzy family way. The scenes and costumes are wonderful. The point of the film is to document reality; as it is a true story. In Buddy’s case, the idea is that you can raise a wild animal in a human friendly fashion, but still it is up to the animal to live like a person.
