The Gorilla (1939)
They are pretty silly guys and I personally find them funny but they over do their Abbot And Costello routine a bit to much. Or at least they do in The Gorilla.
On the other hand The Gorilla does have a guy running around in a giant ape suit and these movies although never really good still appeal me. We have this one really cool scene where the killer Gorilla dangles a woman by her arm from a roof top. The Gorilla hates females and we know this because we are told over and over again. Another thing that I find completely ridiculous about this one is that the characters think the Gorilla can read and write. The Gorilla is supposed to be sending death threats through written letters and that's one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. If ya like dumb, The Gorilla might be a decent pass time but if watching another duo mimic Abbot and Costello might piss you off then stay far away.
