Editorial Reviews

Henry Dussard (Dean Jones), a young American, inherits a picturesque but badly neglected olive farm in southern France and is determined to make it operational again despite cautionary advice from the local priest (Maurice Chevalier) and a pretty villager (Yvette Mimieux). Desperate for laborers, the inventive Dussard turns to the zaniest crew of olive pickers ever recruited ... four mischievous monkeys! As former members of an Air Force space team, these intelligent chimps quickly pick up on their new responsibilities ... but prove to have a turbulent effect on the local townspeople. Endless hilarity results in this slapstick family comedy!|One critic wrote of the film: "If a chimpanzee is cute, does it not follow that a quartet of them will be four times as cute?"

I remember seeing this movie at school in the 4th grade in 1974! I hadn't seen it again until now. It brought back a lot of memories.
It is fair to say that this movie "mainly" works because of the four monkeys involved. The film is quite funny at times with the story ever innocent and delightful. Only the Disney team can dream up a plot involving NASA trained monkeys to work on an olive farm in small town France! The film was shot at the Disney Studios but still looks, sounds and feels great. This is mainly thanks to matte artist Peter Ellenshaw and the Sherman Brothers song writing team for the nicely sounding "Joire de Vivre". Mauice Chevalier is ever upbeat and smiling. This was his last movie appearance but he did come out of retirement to sing the opening credits song for The Aristocats. Dean Jones is fine in this movie...his style seems to suit this type of light Disney comedy. If you love family movies, this will definitely suit...and the kids will love it to. If you are a Disney fan...then this is a must.
Note that there are no extra or bonus features on this DVD but for the price you will be getting a fun Disney film.

I loved this movie. The cast is wonderful, especially Yvette Mimieux and those darling chimps. The scenery is very beautiful and evokes a safe and light-hearted mood. Disney has made some very good movies involving animals (others being "The Three Lives of Thomasina" and "The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit.") True, the DVD does not have a lot of the extras that people are used to, but if you are a Disney fan who enjoys a good clear picture, don't let that bother you.

DVD quality - Disney lost stars with me for not putting any effort into the DVD release, I reviewed the film separately below. The lack of widescreen, extras, re-mastering, trailers, or high quality sound is really sad for a company that makes more money than any other at re-releasing its old material. They can make them great when they want to, check the "Vault Disney Collection" at Amazon to see just how good they can be.

THE STORY - An American farmer named Hank (Dean Jones) inherits a big farm when his Uncle passes away, but it is in the Provence region of France. Upon crossing the ocean and inspecting the farm in person, the local easygoing priest warns him that a farm of this size cannot be run without enough employees or family members. In the meantime he sends Maria to help set the farmhouse straight, and of course they begin to fall in love. Hank decides to operate the farm himself, but local labor costs are outrageous so Hank trains a group of monkeys to pick the olives and infuriates the locals who have been scheming to get him. First is the rival for Maria, but worse is a local land buyer who wants the farm to resell for a profit. He sabotages Hank a few times. Even the labor union is after him trying to initiate a strike, and he better think fast if he is to keep ahead of them and win the girl.

BEHIND THE SCENES & TRIVIA: Maurice Chevalier returns to Disney to star and sing as Father Sylvian. He also appeared in "In Search of the Castaways" and sung the title song in "The Aristocats". The studio's famous composers, the Sherman brothers, wrote his song in the movie, "Joie de Vivre". The movie poster promoting the film had a tagline that said, "L'aughter, L'amour, and le monkey business".

What can you expect from any movie with Dean Jones and monkeys? So it is a bit silly but this is still a classic of that era and worth watching if you like Disney comedies from the 1960s.

Dean Jones was a Disney staple throughout the 1960s and 1970s, appearing in numerous comedies. This movie was one of Jones's first Disney movies. As a comedy this movie is relatively light, with most of the humor coming near the end of the movie.

Hank Dussard (Jones) has inherited a small farm in France with 480 olive trees. In typical American fashion, Dussard believes that he can make a decent living from so many olive trees. In a Disney movie nothing is ever simple, and it turns out that the cost of labor makes olive farming an expensive proposition. Most people who pick olives for a living use their large families to do so. Jones, a bachelor, has no such advantage, though local priest Father Sylvain (Maurice Chevalier, in his last movie appearance) keeps trying to fix him up with local beauty Maria Riserau (Yvette Mimieux, in one of her earliest roles).

Dussard was in the United States Air Force, where he trained monkeys for space flight. Now the monkeys have been retired as the United States has changed to manned space missions. Dussard was able to purchase the monkeys from the Air Force with the intent of using them to pick olives. The scene is set for a series of confrontations between a pair of local socialist leaders and Dussard.

I found the funniest portions of the movie to be in the last half hour. Up to that point there were a few humorous scenes, but the real laughs are near the end. This movie was relatively lightweight even by Disney standards, and I suspect this movie had a low budget. I personally consider this movie family friendly though at least one other reviewer has objected to a scene early in the movie where the butcher, who had romantic aspirations, kissed Maria without her consent.
