    If The Rock played it straight and beat the living shit out of people...I can't even begin to explain how brilliant this movie would be. It's so great Universal may begin to cry at all the money they've invested in him that will be null and void once a monkey enters the equation. "I'll wake you up when I get home..."

    by Vern

    And underneath it is another good fake one about Under Siege 3. If you go to their source,, you will find an actual true story about Seagal filming a movie in New Orleans. And then if you look it up on imdb it's not there but there's another Seagal picture by the same writer called HARVESTER, which is a sci-fi movie featuring some sort of "alien queen." This one's already in postproduction so it probaly won't be another SUBMERGED situation where they take all the mutants out. These are interesting times we're living in, my friends. Steven Seagal is going to space.

    True story. I attended a WWF match in the second row years ago. The Rock spent a lot of time outside of the ring during his fight.

    by hulkhogan

    No joke. It wasn't a bunch of kids like some other poster said. Actor apes are usually beaten into oblivion, and the poor Clyde was no exception. He was severly beaten by his trainers and died a month later. I hope this movie does not get made because ape actors are treated too cruelly. If it is remade -- use animatronics/CGI.

  • Feb. 1, 2006, 1:25 p.m. CST

    the twist is that the Rock plays Clyde!

    by captain_kirk

    That's right, the orangutan in the movie will be the fighter, and the Rock will make out with female orangs in the zoo. It's quite avant garde. And let's face it, this idea, if it is true, is so scathingly stupid. Final beef: an orangutan is a great ape, a primate. NOT a monkey. Monkeys are primates, yes, but are not necessarily found in the same dwelling areas. There are 3 (maybe 4) species of great apes, depending on how you count: chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, and humans. Gibbons and Siamangs (brachiators that swing in trees) are closer to monkeys genetically, and they are known as "lesser apes". Of the 186 or so primate species, some are neither apes nor monkeys, but rather more rodent like (such as the tarsier). Anyone need more of a lesson? Kirk Out
