This is not to imply that the rest of the production lacked brilliance. MONKEY BUSINESS is a true screwball comedy of the pre-WWII type that accelerates and spins out of control in ways that the audience cannot anticipate, but will surely enjoy. Released in 1952 just before Monroe became a full-blown star and TV hijacked the mass audience, the film brims with talent and zesty roles. MONKEY BUSINESS reunites Howard Hawks as director with Cary Grant as male lead after such earlier classic collaborations as BRINGING UP BABY, HIS GIRL FRIDAY and I WAS A MALE WAR BRIDE.
Cary plays a very middle-aged absent-minded professor who is really a bit of a stick--until he's accidentally dosed with a new Ponce de Leon rejuvenation serum and all youth breaks out. Pretty soon he's got his hair in a buzz cut and driving a new roadster so recklessly he scares even the pretty (and pretty daring) secretary, the aforementioned by Marilyn Monroe. Things get even wackier when wife Edwina (Ginger Rogers) accidentally ingests some of the serum, too.Read more ›
This movie, "Monkey Business" is a gleeful look at what happens when a scientist (Cary Grant) comes upon the "fountain of youth" and unknowingly drinks the formula. A chimpanzee gets out of her cage and fuddles with the mixtures left on the table and then dumps it in the nearby water jug fountain in the room. Everyone who drinks from it notices changes to their physical self and personality.
