| It really is funny...
Of course not a masterpiece, but it really is an oddball dark comedy and pretty ballsy for a teen heartthrob to make at the height of his popularity. I mean a big gag during the credits roll involves a mass murder! Soonafter a great gag involves a corpse!I saw it repeatedly at the theater as a kid & found the goofy monkey humor, sinister plot, sunny music, and weird jokes(villain doesn't like to be touched, "doing doing doing") irresistible. Seriously! If Will Ferrell made this exact same flick now it would be a monster! I've viewed it every few years since and it never fails to amuse and confound me. I'm puzzled why it hasn't come out on DVD. Robby should have stuck to comedy.
