Charlie Travis (Bruce Campbell) was sent to the Congo by his father (Joe Don Baker) to locate a rare blue diamond, key to creating an immensely powerful communications device.  When Charlie goes missing while teleconferencing with his father, electronics expert and former CIA operative Dr. Karen Ross (Laura Linney) is sent to investigate.

 

Primatologist Peter Elliott, who has created a device that facilitates communications between apes and humans, accompanies Ross.  Elliot's knowhow will prove invaluable as Karen and her crew encounter vicious gorillas -- the same ones that likely abducted Charlie.  Unfortunately, rescuing Charlie proves less important than locating a treasure trove of diamonds. 

 

Congo was nominated for a Kids' Choice Award.  The picture earned an impressive $152 million at theaters, more than tripling its $50 million budget.
