Love and monkeys!

"I love this movie. It is one of those rare films that you can love while objectively realising that there are flaws in its making...its overall feel of delighted angst is bright and pleasurable.
The characters are quirky and real and their dialogue is to die for. There really aren't any characters that don't seem to do their very best - even the minor characters shine when given the opportunity.
Actually, my very favorite moment in the movie is when Amy and a certain person are getting it on upstairs in her parents' house (gutsy!) and he is bouncing around on her so vigorously that the windows are rattling...her parents think there is an earthquake, so her(ever timorous) mother comes to the foot of the stairs and calls tremulously "Amy....? Are you under a doorway?"
I do think certain parts could have been shot better - for example, the love scene between Amy and the OTHER certain person (you don't see ME spoiling the whole damn movie for others!) is a long, sexy one, but it is screwed up by being pieced together in an odd, choppy fashion. One minute she is topless, the next minute you see him take off her shirt. Also the music during this scene is so bouncy, almost humourous...it's hard to believe that the couple is as into each other as you later learn that they are.
Other than that scene, I think the music is well-chosen and happy, it was a pleasure to hear such high-quality independent artists.
All in all, fun, fun, fun!
Except I REALLY wanted to kick Mishnu's ass."

"Monkey Love is such a fun title and an equally fun movie.
Get ready for the unexpected and make sure you have
your popcorn ready for a fun evening.
I loved Amy and William Sanderson, too! He was in
Blade Runner, which is also a fave of mine.
I loved the MUSIC....
Hopefully the CD will be released soon, too, because I would buy it today.
