I was given the opportunity to view Monkey Up to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
What could be better than a film about a monkey? How about a film that features a famous talking monkey and a zany cast of characters? From Air Bud Entertainment, Monkey Up, is a film the entire family will enjoy watching together.
This film stars everyone’s favorite monkey, Crystal. You may recognize this talented Capuchin monkey from Night at the Museum, We Bought A Zoo and dozens of other popular films. This is Crystal’s first starring role in a full length feature film.
In Monkey Up, Crystal plays Monty, the star of the Monkey Up energy drink commercials.
Monty isn’t happy settling for commercials and wants to become a famous actor in Hollywood.
When the owner of the Monkey Up energy drink finds out about Monty’s plans, he decides to stop Monty from pursuing his dreams.
Monty escapes the owner’s greedy clutches with help from his new family, the Andrews, and his crazy primate siblings.
During his quest for fame, Monty learns the important lesson that family means more than fame or fortune.
This movie is full of adventure and plenty of hilarious moments. We loved Monty’s zany siblings. Their crazy antics made us laugh. You will be so impressed by the monkeys in this film. Their performances are amazing.
