PG | | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
A young girl's life turns hairy when her new pet monkey turns out to be a trained pickpocket on the run from a scheming Gypsy.
Joanna Berry, film critic from the Radio Times, described Harvey Keitel starring in this movie as follows: "Quite what the hard-as-nails star of Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Bad Lieutenant (1992) is doing in this comedy adventure is anyone's guess, but his tongue-in-cheek performance will delight adults, almost as much as the monkey business will enchant young children." After Keitel had starred in those violent, expletive-heavy films, he wanted to do this movie for his young daughter.
It's the machine. You know what to do!
During the dinner scene Eva has corn on the cob on her plate that has clearly been completely eaten. After her friend Katie calls, the corn on her plate is back to being uneaten.
The film is dedicated "For Eva", after Eva Amurri, director Franco Amurri's daughter.
