A young inductee into the military is given the task of looking after some chimpanzees used in the mysterious "Project X". Getting to know the chimps fairly well, he begins to suspect there is more to the secret project than he is being told.Written by

Jimmy Garrett (Matthew Broderick) is seen playing poker in an NCO club. Jimmy (and the rest of the table) is an A1C (E-3), and NCO (in 1987 when this was released) was Buck Sergeant (E-4, 3 stripes with a white center star) and up. The star in the center of the rank from 1976-1991 being not blue denoted an NCO. Airmen would not be allowed in an NCO club or an Officer's Club, there are Airmen Clubs for those ranks. See more »
"This was pretty corny and unbelievable. What I call a silly drama. The acting was good, but the plot was totally unrealistic. At least, I don't think a monkey can fly a plane. The government is experimenting with chimps to see how long they can fly a plane in a simulated situation after taking a lethal dose of radiation. Helen Hunt's pet monkey gets into this program, and she is driven to rescuing him before his turn comes up. With the help of an air force cadet, she breaks the chimp out of the installation, but is in for big trouble from the military big-shots. Some tense moments follow, but they are so hammy that I couldn't get to worked up over the whole deal. Cute family show with some profanity."
Totally unrealistic, eh? Isn't ironic that this actually happened in real life? *shock*
