Overview

Project X is a top-secret government undertaking involving trained chimpanzees. Grounded pilot Matthew Broderick, assigned to teach the chimps how to operate a flight simulator, discovers that his charges are to be subjected to high levels of radiation to test potential human endurance. Risking a court martial, Broderick links up with Helen Hunt, the researcher who has taught the chimps sign language, to save the simians from destruction. The serious subtext of Project X is forgotten during a Disneyesque comic finale, wherein the lovable chimps nearly trigger a nuclear meltdown! Without taking anything away from human stars Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt, we must note that the most engaging performance in Project X is delivered by Willie the Chimp, who essays the challenging role of Virgil the Chimp.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
If you've ever cried during any animal movie, you'll want to keep a box of tissue handy for this sob-inducing drama. Matthew Broderick is an Air Force loose cannon reassigned to a secret project in which chimpanzees are taught to fly planes on simulators. Everything seems fine, and Broderick even makes friends with one, an adorable and intelligent ape named Virgil. Then he finds out that the chimps are only being trained so they can be zapped with fatal ionizing radiation as part of a study to determine how far pilots can fly in the event of nuclear attack. Broderick and Virgil's trainer (Helen Hunt) then spend the rest of the film trying to free the chimps. The best scenes are between Broderick and the animals, who are all terrific. Sure, it may be corny and predictable -- and the ending is more than a little silly -- but animal lovers will find it irresistible.
