Not Disney's finest work
12 August 2002 | by (Mcallen, Tx) – See all my reviews

Call me sad.. I am a 16 year old who actively spends hours around the TV watching the Disney channel with my sister. A lot of it is entertaining, however this was most boring piece of junk I have seen since... I am sorry.. I cannot think of anything less entertaining.. I will break it down: A boy and a monkey, and how the monkey brings a family closer together. By the end of the movie, I didn't feel anything. No emotion.. The monkey could have been shot ten times with a tranq gun, and brought to the middle of the India where they eat monkeys; only to have the little boy run around for another hour trying to collect random body parts from the local merchants.. I wouldn't have shed a tear. Actually I was kind of hoping that would happen. I apologize to the soccer moms out there who are reading this, but it needs to be said.. To the Disney Executives who might come across this: If you are going to do a movie with a bad plot, get some hot women in it.. Please, for the demographic percentage of single 14-16 year old boys who are forced to watch Disney because of their younger siblings.. Hot women... Please... Thank you. :)
