Let alone having hands constructed so they would have been able to open them.
If we were pushed to >really<
portray them as intelligent as chimps(which is beyond laughable), we'd have to
make them use the jaws to open the doors instead of those sideway-motion,
wing-like folding hooks they had for hands.
But then... who's Spielberg to care? He only wants 'realistic' monsters, not
accuracy. Get me Monty Python or Terry Gilliam anytime, they'd do a better job
and the humor would be intentional!
