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.

This film was a laugh and a sidetickler throughout with the great natural actress Thora Birch, the child who wants a pet but whose new father has an allergy to pet fur, while Harvey Keitel as a gypsy-thief with a capuchin monkey is perfect as greedy and conniving but easily thwarted and defeated jewelry/wallet crook.

The filming of this looks almost magical - how did they get the monkey to do all these things, especially the amazing chase scene throughout the boardwalk of Venice Beach, surrounded by joggers, skaters, bike riders and spectators, skateboarders and chaos? The ability of the monkey to steal watches and wallets from unsuspecting tourists was a pleasure to watch. Gives one ideas!

Meanwhile, Thora Birch plays a smart and able girl whose mother is about to re-marry. New hubby-to-be is patient to a point, but when he sneezes his head off with every cat or dog around, there's no way that Thora's going to have a pet. She's desperate, because she wants to have it for herself of course, but also to show her friends at school, the show-and-tell deal.

This monkey is loose, ran away from the gypsy, and she finds it, slips it into her backpack, and adopts it!

Oh boy! The Troubles begin and they're hilarious!

Don't want to give away the whole plot full of monkey trouble. Suffice to say that it's a pleasure for any adult or child to watch, it's got very realistic acting in both adults and children, Thora's parents are tough and strict enough to punish her, and the school doesn't let the kids get away with nonsense either. The dresscode at the public school looks pretty loose, but then, it's Southern California and I'm warped from Catholic school days of the 1960's.

No great masterpiece, but definitely watchable. Thora Birch is the cutest kid on the block, and she can act too. (It's nice to see that somewhere in Hollywood this still counts for something.) Harvey Keitel is great, as always.

You don't need to be a kid to love this movie, it's just good, clean fun. Thora Birch leads the cast with Harvey Keitel as the villian.
Feeling neglected being saddled with a baby brother and new step-father, a school girl, Birch, desperately wants her own pet to love. Her agony is compounded when her parents deny her wish and tell her she is too irresponsible.
Walking home one day she is adopted by a monkey that has run away from his villianous keeper. She secretely keeps her new pet, learns to care for him, then eventually discovers the monkey brings her troubles - Keitel has taught the monkey to steal and wants him back.
Thora has a great emotional range and will cause you laughter and tears. Keitel obviously has fun with his role. I recommend this movie for any occasion. It will appeal to adults and children alike.

No, seriously I've seen tons of Family movies, some are heartwarming, some are deep, some shallow but funny, and after watching how many of my favorites Family movies have been re-made I kinda thought ideas are running out and mainly I've seen it all. Every once in a while, however, I stumble upon an old flick that for whatever reason I had skipped in the past and leaves me really impressed.
I picked this title because I loved little Thora Birch in "Patriot Games and "Paradise" and I thought let's give it a try, I read also that Harvey Keitel was in it, so I thought maybe there is a good movie that I've missed. Didn't expect much, after all I've seen it all in Family movies, dolphins, gorillas, orcas, mice, parrots, cats, dogs, llamas, so what a monkey could bring in addition to that.
Well, when you think you've seen it all, something will stun you, that is this movie, Thora Birch at her best no doubt about it, the monkey is so funny, and script absolutely hilarious, specially about the confusion over framing the adorable protagonist as a common thief, well I'm not gonna give anything else up, but give it a try I bet you will enjoy it.
