Sylvio the gorilla’s droll 9 to 5 is interrupted when he is sent to collect the debt of a local talk show host and finds himself on live TV. The human viewers love Sylvio’s accidentally chaotic and destructive ape persona, which is diametrically opposed to the gentle image Sylvio has fought to embody. Sylvio is a tender cult classic that speaks to anyone who fails to live out their stereotype.
