The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
|PARENTS WARNING: This is NOT A KIDS MOVIE! It contains many sexual references and profanity. Read the detailed content.|
We were only able to collect a total of 73 moviegoer opinions at four different showings. Not a well attended movie. It appears that children were the ones that enjoyed it the most, and it actually wasn't fit for many of them to see. Strangely enough, neither age or gender seemed to make much difference in the opinions given. There also wasn't any common negative comments. It's one of those movies where you don't really know why, but you just don't care for it.
The high number of low opinions and the almost equal number of high opinions means this movie is a tough one to predict who will enjoy it. My recommendation is to read everything we offer for Monkeybone to see if it's the type of story you might enjoy, because it is a VERY unusual movie. If you're still not sure, I would say it's probably worth a rental, if for no other reason than to see the incredible technical wizardry.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
While this is a very visually stunning movie, I don't feel many adults will enjoy it. I found it VERY BORING, except for the look of the movie. "Monkeybone" seems to be targeted at kids, but it isn't suitable, content wise, for the younger kids who might actually enjoy the story. I wouldn't recommend this movie to any adult. Some teens might think it's funny.
Life couldn't be better for cartoonist Stu Miley (BRENDAN FRASER). He has created a hit comic strip featuring
Monkeybone, a petulant rascal with a penchant for wise cracks and racy antics.
Stu, happy and in love with his beautiful girlfriend Julie (BRIDGET FONDA) is on the verge of big success, as his comic strip is about to become a national television show. But on the night Stu is to propose to Julie, he is struck down in a freak accident.
While Stu's body lies comatose — and Julie maintains a constant bedside vigil — his conscious spirit is transported to Downtown, a purgatory-like limbo existing between life and death. Downtown has a carnival landscape populated by mythical gods and creatures who revel in the nightmares of the living.
Upon his arrival, Stu learns his ominous fate: There's no turning back. And just as things seem like they couldn't get any worse, Stu's alter ego,
Monkeybone, springs to life to stir up some trouble. Now, Stu must outwit Death
(WHOOPI GOLDBERG) in order to return to the world of the living before the doctors pull the plug on Stu's body. But Monkeybone has hatched his own plot that could thwart Stu's plans...
