Highly Recommended Fun Family Movie.
25 November 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

Thora Birch plays Eva Boylan, a young girl who befriends a a sweet monkey, who she names 'Dodger'. 'Dodger's mean owner, Kohn played by the brilliant Harvey Keitel wants him back though as he uses 'Dodger' to help steal from people and he will do anything to get him back.

A young Thora Birch gives a great performance here, as does the brilliant Harvey Keitel. Mimi Rogers is also good as mum Amy.

Monkey Trouble is such a cute and a very entertaining family movie with some really great performances from everyone. Monkey Trouble is one for the kids and the grown-ups. See it!
