A Family Classic!!!
29 March 1999 | by (Markham,Ontario) – See all my reviews

"Monkey Trouble" is a really great movie. It will please everyone. I think "Thora Birch" is going to become a really good actress. But the real star in this movie is her pet monkey called "Dodger". Its amazing what they can do.

Harvey Keitel was excellent, and gives an outstanding performance as the bad guy. All in all a great movie, that I wanted in my disc collection.
