The Naked Ape (1973)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Somewhat based on Desmond Morris' fascinating book of pop anthropology, this partially animated satirical docudrama -- produced by Playboy Magazine publisher Hugh Hefner -- traces the evolution of humankind and offers insight into the reasons why we behave the way we do. Though often dealing with sexuality, nothing in the film is terribly offensive or graphic. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Take a non-book, base a movie on it and the result is a non-movie.
