Nancy Banana (Kansas Bowling) has always been a bit different, she has always loved apes and has always wanted to become the teenage Jane Goodall - but she's not different enough to not throw a slumber party with her teenaged friends where they do typical teenage things ... when a homicidal ape, soon termed Psycho Ape (Stephen Albers), shows up and kills all of the girls, stabbing them with bananas - all except for Nancy. Soon enough, zoologist turned zoo keeper Dr. Zoomis (Bill Weeden) shows up with the intent of capturing the ape, or preferably killing him ...

It's 25 years later, and Dr. Zoomis still hasn't succeeded in killing Psycho Ape, and Psycho Ape is still roaming the country side killing people. And then he runs across Nancy ... and refrains from killing her. She's still obsessed with apes, and the two soon become a couple, take a trip to New York City, and do all the touristy things, including a visit to the Empire State Building - which Psycho Ape climbs up on the outer wall in true ape style. Of course, Psycho Ape still does some killing on the side, and Nancy doesn't mind one bit. Then the two run across Dr. Zoomis, and Nancy tells Psycho Ape to kill him - after all he can't stand in the way of their bliss. But Dr. Zoomis is one who doesn't stay dead, and no matter how many times Psycho Ape tries and succeeds, he comes back again and again. And eventually, with Psycho Ape up on the Empire State Building, Dr. Zoomis calls in the Air Force ...

 

Objectively speaking, Psycho Ape! is just not a good movie - and doesn't pretend to be, actually it says in the prologue it's "the dumbest and cheapest" ape movie, and even if both claims can be contested, it gets you in the right mood for this film: Yes, Psycho Ape! was shot on a shoestring, yes, the film doesn't take itself seriously, yes, it's a parody of all ape films before it combined, and not all jokes hit their targets, and yes, the humour's loud, often crude, and very over-the-top ... and for all of this it's a total fun ride, basically for it's Devil-may-care attitude where all pretensions are shot into the wind, nothing stands in the way of a joke, and the ensemble's intentionally camp performances only underline this. So no, not a good movie - just very cool entertainment!
