Funky Monkey

Rated 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.
