From the box:
Eccentric circus owner Max Sabatini’s legacy to his only son, Foster, includes $5 million, with a stipulation: Foster (Tony Danza) must keep Max’s three prized orangutans for at least five years. With the apes comes high-wire artist Lazlo (Danny DeVito). The four additions are too much for Foster’s live-in girlfriend (Stacey Nelkin) whose mother (Jessica Walter) encourages her to move out. Moving in is the Zoological Society, which stands to inherit if Foster fails with the apes. To ensure their success, the society dispatches mobsters to wreak havoc. Comic zaniness ensues as everyone really goes “ape.”
