Harry Walker (James Franco) dreams of becoming a renowned author.  Unfortunately,his monotonous job and bothersome family prevent him from completing even one sentence. He attempts to procure some private time by renting an empty apartment, unaware that he will soon inherit the mother of all distractions.

The Ape (Brian Lally) is a vulgar monkey who sports Hawaiian shirts while hurling insults -- and doodoo, at those he befriends.  The primate has been squatting in the apartment prior to Walker's arrival, and has no intention of leaving now that it has been occupied.Ironically, this simian could provide the inspiration that jumpstarts Harry's non-existent career.
