Russell finds himself in love with a chimp who is really the ghost of his Grandmother.

Great premise - which I'm tempted to believe is based on real events. A great supporting cast which wasn't used to potential.

*** (out of four)

Fun and charming Disney comedy with Kurt Russell as a mailroom worker at a failing television network. But he soon catches the eye of executives when his chimp is able to predict what television show will be a hit.

Come on Disney, we want more of the chimp. Kurt Russell is good and all, especially in his monologue about pepperoni pizza, and Henry Morgan is a given, but it's all a little too safe. It is fun to see young Russell and Ritter though.

A chimp and Kurt Russell in this underwhelming fairly typical 70s Disney film.

wow umn just seen this movie 4 the 1st time n think that this is a good movie 2 watch....its got a good cast of actors/actressess throughout this movie....i think that alan hewitt, harry morgan, hayden rorke, john riitter, joe flynn, heather north, kurt russell, wally cox play good roles/parts throughout this movie.....i think that the director of this comedy/drama/kids/family movie had done a good job of directing this movie because you never know what 2 expect throughout this movie......im shocked that kurt russell looks so young in this movie.....i think that this is a good family/comedy movie 2 watch with a good cast throughout this movie

It is obviously aimed at kids, but it is a mildly amusing watch for anyone. Kurt Russell is still very much learning his trade here.

Monkeys in Disney films starts to lose their charm after a while, but it was a cute flick.

Kurt Russell and a monkey, what more do you need?

Great satire about the quest for ratings.

A film worth seeing. A monkey who can choose the top rated shows on television, not just a subtle commentary on the mentality of television audiences in America.

Disney cranks out another cute one.

Childhood favorite. Still holds up! Live action Disney slapstick at it's finest.
