Rise of the Planet of the Apes: An apex of summer
Hail Caesar! King of the Apes. Son of Bright Eyes, died due to an experimental drug to cure Alzheimer's disease. Adopted by a hunky scientist played by James Franco, excellent as always.
If you're looking for a non-taxing summer flick with more heart than brains, that can be enjoyed by all in the family (no toddlers, please), then you can't get much better than this film. Yes, it's full of corn. But no porn. And the violence is minimal. Just leave your disbelief at the ticket counter. It will get in the way of the fun.
