Above average kids movie. The girl is smart and the monkey is clever. Harvey Keitel's villain is a big surprise.

The team of Thora Birch and Finster the primate makes for light and moderately fun family viewing.

Audience Reviews for Monkey Trouble

Another animal and kid movie, just as stupid as the rest, but it'll entertain the kids.

I've seen this movie many times when I was younger. Its about this troubled girl whose life takes a drastic change when she finds this pet monkey. She hides the monkey in her room so her parents won't know. When she discovers that this monkey has been trained to be a thief by a gypsy she tries to train the monkey to stop stealing. When the gypsy wants the monkey back, she tries everything to keep the monkey from him. This is a very good family movie.

Thora Birch was one of the best ever child actors. And yes Harvey Keitel is really in this film.
