Goofs

Eva uses plastic-handled scissors to cut the fried chicken, much of which is obviously hard and crunchy, and so those flimsy-handled (the blades' metal handle-portions have just short stumpy tabs on the ends that only protrude a small distance into the plastic handles instead of extending all the way into and around the finger-loops, and so this type of scissors is notorious for the handles' breaking at this spot) scissors would never have been able to hack off a large/thick piece of the chicken, especially with the awkward clumsy manner in which the small-handed Eva is operating the scissors.

Flawed, corny, predictable family fun flick
20 May 2001 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Monkey Trouble" tells of an organ grinder's (Keitel) pickpocket monkey who abandons his boss and adopts a young girl (Birch) leading to much monkey business. All of the human actors in this corny flick are upstaged by the monkey star whose antics make this predictable family comedy worth watching. Nuff said.
