Trivia:
The film was inspired by a series of spots made for MTV as idents to go between music videos. The team behind the project first made them in the hope that MTV would air them at least once, but MTV loved them. They were soon picked up by all the MTV regions in Europe, Canada, South America, Australia and Asia. They even dubbed the spots into German. It wasn't long before they commissioned more spots, and even flew the guys to London to shoot some "Crazy Monkey in the UK".See more »

Worst movie I've ever seen, 16 February 2006
Author: (hennier) from South Africa

This is the worst movie I have ever seen. I tried to laugh at the jokes, but it took a lot of effort.

It's just not funny. What is funny to me is that people can give this movie 10 out of 10.

There is nothing good about this movie. I must say that the marketing for the movie is actually good. I think the producer spent most of his budget on marketing.

Anyway, I just want to let people know how bad this movie is. Don't waste money to go and see this. It is really not worth the time and money.
