I had always suspected that Sigourney Weaver was a lousy actress - And - Yep - I was right about her. She didn't prove me wrong with this one.

Here in "Gorillas In The Mist" - I found that the more obsessed the Fossey character got with her "Save-the-Gorillas" mission the more irritating Weaver's performance became until it inevitably escalated into a laughable parody that was impossible to take seriously.

What also lost this potentially promising "One-Woman-Crusade" story some really major points was the truly dumbass "Me-Tarzan-You-Jane" romance that transpired between the brittle Fossey character and the smug, National Geographic photographer, Bob Campbell.

Yep - IMO - That whole kissy-kissy nonsense between Fossey and Campbell was the straw that broke the gorilla's back. Indeed.

This film is truly amazing because it shows that that the love of gorillas brings about an increase of their population in Africa.
