Congo is a throwback African Jungle adventure that pits a primatologist, fortune hunters, an ex-CIA agent and others against warring factions, hungry hippos, and killer volcano-dwelling mutant apes bred to defend an ancient diamond mine! Laura Linney, Bruce Campbell and Tim Curry are nearly upstaged by a clever, "talking" gorilla named Amy, who just wants to return to her kind. Some jokes here and there soften the blow of bad acting, very contrived dangers and other faux pas. Not one of the best adaptations of a Michael Crichton book by far, but oddly entertaining at times.

Continuity mistake: As the group enters Zinj, a black man leads. As he walks through a cave, he is holding nothing. In the next shot he has a machete and gun. (01:05:50)

Monroe: Eddie! What happened to your head?
Eddie: Customs guy, whacked me in the head with a can of peanut oil for stamping visas. I'm never goin back to that country, man. Those people have permanently wigged out.

Trivia: According to Frank Marshall, the Amy suit was apparently so convincing that many viewers thought it was a trained gorilla, and were amazed as to how the Amy scenes were accomplished, frequently asking Frank how he managed to train a gorilla so well.
