Monkey on His Back
21 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I first must note special interest: I do not like 'comedies' in which animals are mistreated for the audience's amusement: Jules White & Zion Meyers' DOGVILLE series for MGM fills me with horror. But chimpanzees are human enough and social enough that using them as performers does not disturb me and I have some fond members of the Marquis Chimps on television when I was a child.

Given that, we are left with the question of how this stacks up against the others in the series and the answer is: not too badly, as the usual Snooky plot -- Snooky and small children against evil adults -- makes its way in a racetrack venue, where the baddies are trying to fix a race until Snooky rides the winner home. Of course, there are the usual touches that annoy me: Snooky holds perfectly intelligible conversations and rescues toddlers but the titles are a bit wittier than usual for this series and there's a nice sequence of bathing beauties. So if you like Snooky movies, you'll probably like this one.
