Circus Chimp in Space

I think the language was circus freak. Ham III was the grandson of Ham I dead. I don’t know about Ham II. Luna and Titan was that chimp flying with Ham III and Titan keeps calling him circus freak. Violent rocket.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing

It’s... kind of garbage!

Why... Out of all the movies that “Another Postcard” by BNL could have been featured in... Why did it have to be this? I found out about this movie through that song, and I have to say, this movie is very underwhelming. Don’t waste your time. The only reason I could think of to watch this is if you’re a really, REALLY hardcore Barenaked Ladies fan, or if you just want to make fun of it with friends. As for children, this has no value to them at all. Don’t rot their brains.
