Mom, can I keep this movie? I like it!
24 April 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Timmy (Justin Berfield) has a new stepmother, much to his disliking. His father, a doctor, barely had enough time for him before the wedding; now, Justin has to share time with his dad with HER. Eva is proving herself to be a bit strict as well. When he brings home a dog, she won't allow him to keep him, saying his behavior is below par. Timmy is miffed. However, a gorilla escapes from a dismal sideshow operation and ends up in Timmy's garage. He is determined to keep THIS pet. However, he is in a long line of people after the ape, from the sideshow owner to a big game hunter to the animal welfare people. Will Timmy be able to hide the gorilla? What will his new stepmother say if she finds out? Okay. The gorilla here is not a real animal. However, she is a delightful puppet or creature with a sweet and lively personality. Her name is Zamora and she can charm the pants off children and adults. Berfield, too, is wonderful as the child who misses his deceased mother and needs more attention from his father, while trying to accept the fact that his new mother is here to stay. The supporting players are just fine (Alana Stewart is a bit pouty, it seems) and the sunny California scenery is a nice view in those places that have much snowfall. Families searching for acceptable movies for the whole gang to watch will like this one; (one should be aware that there was one noticeable swear word). Mom, can we keep this movie? will likely be the response if mother or father should bring this one home.
