Funky Monkey

Funky Monkey

2004, PG, 94 min. Directed by Gene Quintano. Starring Matthew Modine, Roma Downey, Seth Adkins, Taylor Negron, Gilbert Gottfried.

Not reviewed at press time. Matthew Modine stars as a martial arts expert who teaches a young boy about confidence with the help of a simian sidekick named Clemens. Clemens is described by the press kit as a "super-chimp," and from the looks of the press photos – Clemens suited up for a football game, Clemens in a pink-collared shirt and shades, um, aping Tom Cruise's Risky moves – we'd have to agree.
