Project X Reviews
February 22, 2014
Helen Hunt trains a chimp to do sign language and when the school can no longer afford to keep it, it is bought by the Air Force for experimental testing. Matthew Broderick is a pilot who is sent to work on the project and slowly grows close to Virgil and learns of what ultimately happens when the chimps are subjected to radiation. He tries to help and Hunt happens to find him which felt a little off. It builds up slow and a few things that happen seem a bit odd and convenient. With that said, I still really enjoyed this and it is hard to not feel heart string pulls with this one. Not sure why this one is so negatively regarded, but I really enjoyed it even if it was a bit overdramatic in parts.

Siempre recordare la historia triste de los chimpances. No hagais pelis para ninyos si vais a causarle traumas con lacrimogenas historias de monos.

I liked it. It was sad, but I liked seeing another side of Matthew in this movie. You can start to see why Helen Hunt is so good at more serious movies with her acting in this one.

"Project X" reflects quality and care throughout, but its elements don't quite mesh.

Tried to be E.T., but just didn't work. Why does it have such a high rating on here?

A great 80s movie that deals with friendship, the treatment of animals, and of course the intelligence of man's closest relative.

As we are a Nation of discovery and science,this film makes one see if they are really trusted and worth the time.Helen Hunt plays a lady who teaches chimps sign language.Unknowingly,her cute animals are sent not to a zoo but to a military compound for experiment.Matthew Broderick is our hero,and he tries to save the animals from pending danger and harm.The viewer falls in love with these innocent creatures, and cheers at their survival.

Just stumbled on this movie as I was looking for the 2012 Project X. We used to call this the "monkey movie" and I had forgotten the title. I remember loving it as a kid.

One of the final attempts in a long line of 80's teen movie anti-military glop. Save the monkeys! Because.. you know, they're cute and everything. Who cares about those icky humans, anyway. Broderick effectively captures the innocence and naivete of youth, somehow managing to swallow a character with the backbone of a marshmallow.

Broderick is cute as usual, but the whole monkey plot is so stupid.
