Fun family movie with a cute star
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a fun movie that the whole family can enjoy together. The star is a monkey named Dodger who is amazingly well trained. He is not really bad- he's just been trained to do bad things by his gypsy owner (Harvey Keitel who has a lot of fun with the villan role). The kids in this movie are cute, especially the younger brother, and the locations around the L.A. area are beautiful. There's also some interesting comparisons between the monkey's family unit and the little girls."
I love this movie!!!!
