How totally cool is the capuchin monkey who stars in the fresh and funny family movie Monkey Trouble? Cool enough to hold his own against Harvey Keitel. Having fun with a mouth full of bad teeth and a mysterious accent, Keitel plays a greasy-haired Gypsy who has trained the monkey as a pickpocket. Thora Birch plays Eva, the lively and blessedly uncoy girl who adopts the escaped animal-she calls him Dodger-and hides him from her mother (Mimi Rogers) and stepfather (Christopher McDonald). Any kid might wish to be as self-confident and resourceful as Eva. For that matter, any adult might wish to hang out with a monkey as confident and resourceful as Dodger. B+
