A Girl Who's Lost Her Footing… Finds A Friend With A Tail.

A young girl finds an unlikely and uplifting friendship with an adorable monkey in this charming, light-hearted film. Katie has lost interest in her school, her friends, and gymnastics following the loss of her mother. But her outlook changes in the summer when she is asked to monkeysit Gibby, her science teacher's Capuchin monkey. Taking care of the monkey challenges Katie and reorders her life in a big way, and Gibby's happy-go-lucky personality renews Katie's zest for life. Gibby helps her with gymnastics, renewing friendships (including finding a potential boyfriend) and overcoming her nemesis, a mean girl who is out to beat Katie at everything.

Rising star Shelby Lyon heads up an all-star cast, including Peyton Meyer (Girl Meets World), Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles), Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day) and, of course, Crystal the Monkey (Night At The Museum).

Check out a sample clip:


This was a fun family night movie, that allowed for a few pauses and discussions, especially about 'mean girls', trying your best, how people mourn differently, forgiveness, and responsibility. Whew, that's a lot when you think it's about a girl and a monkey!

But Gibby is adorable and Miss Grace was hysterical during the kitchen scene, I shared above, and adored the movie. I would say it is aimed more at the pre-teen to teen level, but adults will be charmed by it. And it's perfect for getting into the Olympic mood, due to the gymnastics included!

Parents who long for a clean and entertaining movie to watch with their children will be delighted. In addition, it is “Family Approved” by the Dove Foundation.
