Lousy and low budget production.
20 November 2011 | by SimonHeideSee all my reviews

Lousy and low budget production all the way through. Long scenes with monkeys running around where you really have suspend your intellect to drift along and imagine what is going on. If you do this you realize that the monkeys have a friend that helps them against the bigger monkeys - really not enough for me or my daughter to get involved. The love story is too corny. I couldn't muster the necessary energy to see this movie through. A total waste of time.

The scenes with slapstick humor is to infantile even for children - again as far as my daughter goes....

Don't bother.... Really...!

Ps. When you read reviews that gives max score check to see if the user has made more than one review. If not consider the possibility of a lobbyist. If you agree consider putting this post scriptum at the bottom at your own reviews.
