Unfortunately it looks like I won’t be able to go see the new Planet of the Apes movie this month, but I’ll survive I suppose. In the meantime, I still have lots of monkey movies on my computer.
First up this time was Barefoot Executive.
Starring a very young Kurt Russell it’s a quite silly, but very cute movie, with an adorable little tv-loving chimpanzee.
Followed by Monkey Trouble.
This is the first movie in my Monkey Movie Marathon Month that actually has a monkey in it, and not an ape. A capuchin monkey to be precise. And a young girl with a family situation she doesn’t like, but learns to love.
Next up is MVP 2: Most Vertical Primate
Just like the first in the series it’s exactly what you’d expect – cute, heartwarming and comedic. There is a scene where the monkey, Jack, is accused of biting another player. The expressions they get from the chimp afterwards are just heartbreaking.
Next on the list is Gorillas In The Mist
Sigourney Weaver takes a break from fighting with Aliens to play Dian Fossey in a true story. Mountain gorillas, Rwanda, fighting, problems, triumph.
Then the sequel to Space Chimps. Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back
Not as good as the first one, but still cute and funny.
