Mighty Joe Young - C
Viewed Dec 31, 1998 at Evergreen Parkway 13 in Hillsboro, OR

Mighty Joe Young is yet another variation on the E.T./Free Willy formula. Watchable, but this plot has been played out often enough, and Young isn't interested in putting any new spin onto it. The human cast act with all the conviction of a group collecting their paychecks (Bill Paxton, in particular, looks really bored with the proceedings), leaving the giant gorilla as the only character that elicited any sympathy from me.
