Funky Monkey Rules!
Run, don't walk to your nearest video store and get this film! We were
fortunate to get it on our MVP membership at Hollywood Video so it was
free! It's worth twice that much! The title character is a genetically
enhanced super-chimp that is not only very intelligent, but possesses
keen Ninja skills as well. Not only that, but he is apparently able to
change his height from shot to shot in this awesome movie! Sometimes
he's your basic 3 foot tall primate, and other times it looks like he's
a human sized ninja fighting side to side with partner Matthew Modine!
Wow! This ape is super-talented! Add to this stellar performances from
both Taylor Negron and Gilbert Gottfried - what can you say - box
office magic! 10 stars! Brain cells - use them or lose them!.
I bought this movie from Gamestop's discount used movie bin and the
cover caused me to laugh uncontrollably so I bought it for 99cents. The
movie itself is retarded and they use like ten different monkeys
throughout the whole film that hardly look alike. Not to mention they
use a stunt double who is just a short guy in costume making a
desperate attempt to impersonate a monkey.
The director more than likely committed a murder-suicide with the
chimpanzees after the movie debuted in a preview for some other low
rent Warner Bros. film and he ended up owing money to the studio. It
also doesn't help that he wasn't even infamous for the terrible job he
did, he wasn't even known for producing a poop-chute film.
Why was this movie ever made?.
