Eccentric socialite Gertrude 'Trudy' Lintz (Rene Russo - The Thomas Crown Affair) has four youngsters. She has their clothes tailor-made, teaches them table manners
, to play croquet and to say their prayers before bedtime. But these are no ordinary youngsters - they're chimpanzees! BUDDY tells the true story of Trudy, who with her husband Bill (Robbie Coltrane - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone) and her loyal assistant Dick (Alan Cumming - Spy Kids), is the most generous animal keeper since Noah!
But her favourite 'child' is Buddy, the gorilla she raised from a sickly baby to a mischievous adult who gets into all kinds of hilarious monkey business.
A delightful family adventure based on a remarkable true story.
