I remember seeing a lot of family films during the 90s, including many great ones, but this one seems to be missing among those great family films of that time for some strange reason. I do remember seeing Monkey Trouble before, but that was only once; whereas, I remember seeing several other family movies on numerous occasions, so this is something that baffles me in regards to this film. Monkey Trouble is a wonderful family film – very entertaining!!! it's a film that will get you laughing all the way throughout. Out of all the family films you may have seen from that era, this one is most definitely underrated, and unfortunately has gone unnoticed. Like I said, I remember seeing this film once before, but couldn't find the name for it for a sad number of years until I randomly found it on here – remarkable! The amount of reviews this film has here proves just how unnoticeable this film actually was.
