TRAILER SCORE: 7/10
Thoughts by TSR: It’s chimpanzees frolicking joyfully through the jungle. How do you critique that? There doesn’t even need to be a story or a “for a first time ever caught on video” and we’ll still watch it. Call it Chimpanzees: So Precious it Hurts,” and people will still happily line up for tickets. So what if the music used in the trailer is bad enough to cause an ear bleed? Mute that sucker and watch it again, just so you can feel your heart gasping for air. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing I have to decide now is whether I should burst into tears while I’m outside in line, or wait until I’ve seen the actual movie.
