James Franco stretches the boundaries of credibility as a genius scientist in this reboot of the simian sci-fi series. In it, his quest to save his Alzheimer’s-afflicted dad results in a super-smart ape who causes all kinds of havoc. We all know where that’s gonna lead: a world where bears will be the least hairy guys on Scruff.
