It's that time of year again: We've got ourselves a body-swap comedy and ape movie to look forward to. It was inevitable, and at this point we're convinced that there's some unwritten Hollywood law that requires at least one of each to be released every year. The upside is that we've been hearing good things about them both, and at the very least we've got a bunch of promising indies hitting theaters as well.
