Quotes

[first lines]
Monkey: As a child I always felt responsible for my mom. Dad would be gone. She'd be alone for months, sometimes years, and eventually dad would come home. And I'd be okay. And everything would be all right. 'Cause mom would be saved.

One of the funniest films ever.
10 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

So weird and quirky that you'll laugh until you cry... then you'll puke. :) Monkey is one of those films that you love or you hate. I love it and I make everyone I know watch repeatedly (and in turn they hate me for it). It's brilliant humor!
