Fun fun fun, but not necessarily for all the family.
November 16, 2009
Primed to be dark, twisted, and playful -- all exhibited traits of the works of the director, animator Henry Selick -- it is instead juvenile, amateurish, and sloppy.

A bundle of chaotic energy signifying nothing.

The film Monkeybone is a raucous mess. Director Henry Selick mixes animation and live action to the noisy, clumsy detriment of both.

...an outrageously funny demonstration of how our interior angst can be put into the service of art.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 7, 2008
This tale about alter ego and greed generates more morbid and sexual content than a real sense of ghoulish fun or panic.

You can almost see money dripping off the walls of the sets and cybersets in this special-effects extravaganza.

The design is often brilliant, although the film is nowhere near as tasteless or funny as it ought to be.

The movie doesn't seem to have a purpose other than to fill space.

An embarrassment for Brendan Fraser. Consider this surreal comedy attempt a career hurdle that Fraser has since cleared.

Don't waste your time with this monkey business.

Monkeybone is kind of like a Tim Burton movie - except it wasn't directed by Tim Burton.

There's a special place in my heart for movies that create new worlds for us to inhabit.

A largely frustrating 90-minute experience.

Selick does his cast a major disservice.

If you're interested in craziness, loony looking critters and other people's nightmares, there are worse ways to spend 90 minutes.

Nice bid all around, kids. Too bad it doesn't quite work.
