One of the most horrendous films I have ever seen
7 December 2016 | by PeterLormeReviewsSee all my reviews

Monkey Up (2016) is one of the most horrendous films I have ever seen. That is not an exaggeration. I don't even know where to begin. The directing is some of the stalest I have ever seen. The entire production seems like an uninspired piece of product spat out by a studio. So much so that the studio and the director team up for an average of 2 movies per year. I'm not kidding either, Robert Vince has been making animal-based family comedies on a yearly basis since 2000. I can practically guarantee that most of them have the exact same structure every single time. The writing is absolutely pandering, trying to play off what kids these days "like to do". It seems like a 70-year-old man wrote this script up in an hour, with one purpose. That purpose being to write in as many "selfie" and "hashtag" jokes that could possibly be put into an 80-minute film. The acting was some of the worst I've ever seen put to film. I've seen better acting from students trying to reenact a play inside of their English class. But I would actually encourage people to watch this movie, especially film students. If you are ever feeling down on yourself, just watch this movie. Hopefully you will realize that you aren't making absolute trash like this. I feel bad for the sad saps who worked on this movie because they have created something hideous. Does God live in shame because of what he has created? If he ever watched this movie, he surely would.
