No resemblence at all.

Recent DNA evidence indicates something interesting. Man and chimps separated millions of years ago. But apparently they were quite capable of interbreeding for long after that and continued to do so. So for about one million years our ancestors and the ancestors of chimps were doing the horizontal tango. This may explain why the DNA between us and our chimp cousins is so similar.

Believers in intelligent design in the White House might have problems with this and would deny there is any commonality between humans and chimps.
