There are very few films that both of my kids ever want to watch together. Not that there is a shortage of good family friendly films out there, but with a teenager and a toddler, it becomes a little challenging.
From the creators of Air Bud and Air Buddies – so we know it’s going to be a fun, family film – is Monkey Up!
The adorable Skylar Astin (whom we all know as Jesse from Pitch Perfect!) voices Monty, a hilarious monkey who talks, sure, but has his sights set on a career as a serious actor. He’s the face of a popular energy drink, but he wants to be so much more. He finds residence with a family in their dollhouse and helps the family discover their own dreams along the way.
Of course, what hero is complete without a villain? His trainer and his owner want him all to themselves to reap the benefits of his stardom, so Monty must try to escape with the help of his new family and his monkey siblings.
Monkey Up can be enjoyed by your family during its limited theatrical release in AMC Theaters now through January 21st!
You can catch Monty on DVD beginning on February 2nd but we’re sure you don’t want to miss the chance to enjoy movie time with the kids at the theater.
You can also see Monkey Up on iTunes now!
Be sure to follow Monty The Monkey on Twitter and let him know what your family thought about the movie!
