Monkey Trouble

type
  • Movie

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+
