The movie chronicles the true story of Oscar, a young baby that was orphaned and left to fend for himself in the wild. Incredibly, filmmakers were able to record Oscar's adoption into a neighboring chimp community, and chronicle his upbringing and growing pains.
In this exclusive sneak peek, audiences learn how the primates gather vital food from thick-shelled nuts -- a strategy that's sure to please the film's narrator, Tim Allen. Little rocks just won't get the job done, so they obviously need, as Allen says, "more power. Argh-argh-argh!"
What follows is like an episode of Tim's "Home Improvement" mixed with "National Geographic": Fellow chimp Freddie commits a major violation of tool law and pilfers another ape's equipment.
This chimp could seriously benefit from a wise lesson about the Mesopotamians from his fenced-in neighbor, Wilson.
"Chimpanzee" arrives in theaters on Friday, April 20, Earth Day weekend.
