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.

This movie was impossible to find but I have to say, it was worth the search as well as the higher price! My 6-yr old daughter had watched it on Netflix repeatedly, but then they suddenly removed it from their playlist. She has been anxious for months to watch it again,...and we finally own it now! I watched it with her and I surprisingly enjoyed it from beginning to end! It's a funny, laugh-out-loud kind of movie for the entire family to share together. There is some emotion to it too! I'm so glad we have this movie for our collection! It's a gem!!
