Dove Review

Bad Monkeys is many things including a father/son story, a story of good vs. evil, and ultimately, a story of fun in the jungle. And there is a quest thrown into the plot–the search for a golden egg.

Tik-Tik is an ape who has been unable to prove his worth to his father, who is the leader of all the apes. Tik-Tik just can’t seem to measure up. One day, he is given the chance to prove his worth when his father’s life is placed in danger. Will he succeed? You need to see it to find out!

The movie is not all serious, that’s for sure. For example, one character loves bananas and enters a banana-eating contest. The prize? Even more bananas! Does he win? You will have to see for yourself, but there are some suspenseful moments in this fun-filled animated movie. The jungle is literally teeming with life and the animation is full of vibrant colors and memorable characters such as Rich the rabbit.

There are various animals of the jungle that battle one another for ownership of the territories, which includes moments of slapstick violence with some name-calling, such as “scumbags” and “losers”. However, many of the apes and monkeys fight for honor, a really nice theme in an animated film. We are pleased to present Bad Monkeys our Dove-approved for All Ages seal.

The Dove Take:

Some of the monkeys may be naughty at times, but this movie is a fun-filled, funny adventure that reminds us to respect our family and honor those around us!
