Monkey Up Review
Family is a hard thing to juggle but lots of times we as parents get busy and our children suffer. But each family has it’s own set of struggles and of course we often times forget that the best thing about family is working together. In Monkey Up the family each has their own struggles but Monty the monkey helps each individual solve their problems. While doing so the family falls in love with the monkey and of course realize that the most important thing in life is family. When working together to reach one common goal helps them all succeed and reach their own goals. This heartwarming story is a must own this year.
I will have to admit that at first I was afraid that Monkey Up was a little cheesey at first. But I stuck with it and the movie and the characters tugged at my heartstrings throughout the entire movie. But the tugging of the heartstrings went perfect with the hilarious storyline that brought everyone closer together. This adorable movie brought to you by Air Bud Entertainment, will be available on Digital HD Digital HD January 19, 2106 and DVD February 2, 2016.
