I don’t use the term frequently or lightly, but Disney’s Chimpanzee was absolutely DARLING!  I loved every single second of it.  I took my seven-year-old son this weekend, and we both have a new favorite movie.  For me this comes as no surprise, as I have had a life-long obsession with all things monkey.  My first gift was a sock monkey that I still have, and I recently let my son borrow my stuffed gorilla (creatively named “Gorilla”) who has also been a lifetime friend and protector from the dark.

Loving chimpanzees, and nature shows/movies, of course I am completely biased.  But the story is heart-warming too, and the cinematography is phenomenal.  A work of art as well as a movie.  I laughed, I almost cried, I bonded with my son, and I left feeling a strong desire to be a better parent, a better person, and a better visitor on this planet.

Even if you don’t have kids, even if you don’t have a monkey fixation, I highly, highly recommend this film.  Two very enthusiastic opposable thumbs up!!!

Best friends.


Little dude.
