Ben Kingsley as Jungle Ninja
4 December 2006 | by (Santa Cruz, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the flat out funniest movies I've ever seen. 10 out of 10 for sure. Ben Kingsley stars as a man who has special powers over animals. He travels across the jungles with four monkeys, and the identity of the fifth monkey is debatable. My theory is that it is Kingsley, but friends of mine have argued that it is a mysterious monkey that Kingsley sees in a waterfall at one point. There is monkey-like love scene, a crazy old rich woman with a private zoo and her own crazy drunken veternarian, averted prison rape, Kingsley ninja action and more. Its been years since I've seen this film, but at my house in college we watched this film repeatedly. It never gets old. It has a nice laid back pace to it, and as I said before, it is hilarious. (Mostly unintentionally funny, I believe.) 10/10.
