Movie Quote(s):
  • Monroe: Quite frankly, the twentieth century sucks. Maybe the twenty-first will be better.
  • Monroe: They just blew up the president's car. Eddie: That was the president's car? Did they get him? Monroe: That's the bad news: no, they didn't.
  • Monroe: I'm your great white hunter for this trip, though I happen to be black.
  • Richard: So, what was your name again? Claude: Claude. Richard: Oh. Well, that's a very odd name for someone from... uh... where are you from again? Claude: Mbasa. Richard: Yeah, that's a very odd name for someone from Mbasa. Claude: Have you ever been to Mbasa? Richard: Um, no. Claude: Then what do you know about it?
  • Monroe: The ghost tribe has several levels of "dead." Someone's not dead until they're completely "dead."
Movie Trivia:
  • Director Frank Marshall originally intended to use the computer work pioneered on Jurassic Park (1993) for the gorillas, but opted for models as the computers weren't capable of reproducing hair.
  • The "diamonds" used for the scenes during the climax of the movie were actually Herkimer Diamonds borrowed from the Herkimer Diamond Mines of Middleville, New York. They are doubly-terminated (two-ended) quartz crystals that are found in only two places in the world. They were the only gems that would look enough like diamonds and be that large.
  • The diamond that was thrown out of the balloon at the end of the movie was lost, and so could not be returned to Herkimer Diamond Mines.
  • Dylan Walsh plays Dr. Peter Elliot, a primatologist who's returning a gorilla to the wild. The real Peter Elliot is a gorilla choreographer and ape performer in many movies, including this one.
  • Fred Dalton Thompson turned down a key role
