The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Planet of the Apes (2001)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Planet of the Apes from 2001.  Is it an ambitious remake by an unconventional director, or is it just monkeying around?

Was Tim Burton aiming for human like apes?  Was he after ape like humans?  Can we get through a movie with Mark Walhberg without making a Marky Mark joke?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
