Storyline

This amusing, darkly comic tale follows CIA agent Jack McCall and a chimpanzee that he attempts to liberate from a testing lab. Named Clemens, the chimp has been trained in martial arts combat, as part of a program designed to turn the creatures into fearsome fighting machines. Naturally this leads to plenty of slapstick moments between Modine and the chimp, especially when they seek refuge in the home of a boy and his mother as the owners of the lab hotfoot it after the escaped primate.

Hey, bunky, Funky Monkey is a top banana of a film!
10 February 2014 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Alec (Matthew Modine) has been training a talented chimp, Clemens, for the spy business. His boss, Flick (Taylor Negron) is most pleased with the animal's progress. But, alas, he has a heart of stone. Alec learns on the day he is to find another position that Flick intends to use Clemens as part of a "simian army" and other nefarious activities. So, he steals Clemens away. Off they go to San Diego, where they find digs from a landlord (Roma Downey), who has a super-bright son Michael. This beautiful lady is often away on her job as a top computer programmer so Alec, Michael, and Clemens all become great friends. Clemens even saves them all from a motorcycle gang at a city park, where the little chimp tangles them up on the swing set! But, Michael is shy at school and could really use Alec's help in two ways. One, as a former star football player, this older man could help Michael make the team. Two, Alec is assigned the job of getting a beautiful cheerleader to notice Mike. Whew! Meanwhile, Flick and his bumbling assistants are hot on Alec's trail, for they want the chimp back at all costs. What a mixture of romance, action, slapstick comedy and good versus bad, right? Right! This film is a wonderful family movie, for it has nearly everything. That is, viewers will find a great cast, a fine script, a beautiful setting, a zesty direction and a lovable, talented chimp! Hey, bunky, get Funky Monkey, its a top banana of a film!
