meh. i was hoping it'd be different, and i like odd movies, but this crossed the line that's acceptable to me. and the end? SO cliche. think: fight club. nothing spectacular here. although you get to see james franco make funny facial expressions >.<

i wish it was a novel, but then again would anyone understand it if it was??!! hmmm...
i must admit he was crazy in this movie, i guess everyone has an ape inside them! ;)

I wish he wrote it as a novel instead of a play. I still love him though. :( This movie made me very sad!
August 24, 2007
funny!!! but boring in some parts. It ended really well though!

good movie for his first directed...but not his best acting...or even a good plot.

Little known fact: James Franco is a genius. I thought he was just another pretty face till I saw his opus. Nonstop hilarous dialogue and awkward situations! Can't wait to see more from James when he isn't working for a paycheck.

It's original for sure, and although it's really awkward at times and really ridiculous, I think that's what made the movie. Also "Rendez-Jew" was hilarious. It was fun to see the inner-workings of James Franco's mind through this film that he wrote, directed, and starred in. It's extremely off-beat and I would only go in to watch it with an open mind. I also think the ending was just right.

I can understand the direction that Franco was going for and i'm sure he put a lot of effort into this movie but he didnt really let the story flourish. The dialogue could have been much better. Seeing as it was written as a play, I'm sure it was fine then; there was a slight, slight hint of potential for the movie but it fell flat almost effortlessly.

I think that the play looked really funny and intersting. However, I do NOT feel that the play translated well into a movie. This movie completly ended my obsession with James Franco. Seriously. I'm sorry James, its over.

This movie was terrible. Probably on the top worst movies EVER!
June 13, 2007
Hmm...You're so silly James. Haha.

He works better with outside direction, but it was interesting to see where James Franco can go when he lets loose.

I was fortunate to see a screening of The Ape two years ago and hear James Franco talk about it afterwards. Franco is, in my personal opinion, a very good actor (when a certain wall-crawler isn't around) and he does have a knack for good dialogue (he's no Tarantino or Kaufman, but he's pretty good). As a director, he could use a little work, but other than that, The Ape is an interesting little project that's worth a shot.

Really really stupid independent film, I am sure there is some pretentious meaning behind the film, but frankly I don't care what it is, if there is indeed anything at all. Garbage.
