[Talking to Eva]
Look hon, we all make mistakes. All I want you to do is walk up an aisle, and if there's anything you forgot to pay for in your backpack, just leave it there. If you do, I'll forget this entire thing.

Flawed, corny, predictable family fun flick
"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.
