Reviews
Mine: Fun. Charlize is great looking, Paxton does a good job. Joe Young Effect is really well done.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Entertaining update of the 1949 movie: Theron is raised in the jungle alongside a supersized ape. In order to protect Joe from poachers, she agrees to bring him to an L.A. animal conservancy--but no one understands the big guy as she does. What is more, a bad guy is out to get him, leading to an inevitable rampage. Good fun, earnestly done. Terry Moore (star of the 1949 film) and Ray Harryhausen (who helped animate the original Joe) have a cameo together; so does Dina Merrill, whose husband produced the film. Joe was designed by Rick Baker.
