|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Clumsily written Saturday-matinee nonsense about a gorilla expert who goes on a trouble-laden expedition to Africa with a Roumanian fortune hunter and a high-tech communications expert who's searching for her ex-fiancÚ. Sort of watchable, but poky pacing, unappealing characters, and senseless script sink it. The big special-effects climax is as unconvincing as Amy, the costarring gorilla. Michael Crichton's story was adapted by--of all people--John Patrick Shanley (MOONSTRUCK). Joe Pantoliano appears unbilled.
