Movie Info

When insecure teenager Alex (Josh Wise) persuades his buddies James (Sean Shanks) and Eric (Tony LaThanh) to go on a road trip through the Southwest for the summer, he doesn't tell them he's not planning to return. Along the way, they meet two girls (Chelse Swain and Amanda MacDonald) who join them; get into trouble with the law; and learn a few important life lessons. This bittersweet coming-of-age drama co-stars Corbin Bernsen as Alex's father.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Ape

This is one of those "I have the meaning to life" indie movies. Not a bad indie flick, though. It's about some kinds who go on a road trip (where all movies dealing with the meaning of life begin)
