Could this movie get any stranger?
Well, sadly, yes.
I had really high hopes for this one. I liked it, don’t get me wrong. I just wish they’d pushed a lot farther with it. I was expecting something truly trippy and messed up with frightening and bizarre images. What I got was more like a frat party attended by the minor characters in “the Never-ending Story”.
Come to think of it, that’s one heck of an idea for a movie. I thought of it first, so hands off!
If you’ve already seen “Nightmare Before Christmas” and the highly underrated “James and the Giant Peach”, you won’t miss anything much by skipping “Monkeybone”. If you haven’t seen either of those two movies yet, well, check them out ASAP!
A dark, but very funny film, from the director of “Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Starting and ending with cartoons about the titular character ‘Monkey Bone’ this is a hilarious and visually stunning film.
It is NOT a film for children so don’t let the television adverts fool you into thinking that it is a delightful animated romp in the park for kids. The first cartoon sequence explains in graphic detail how the character of ‘Monkey Bone’ got his name; and it is not something that can be repeated in this forum.
Unfortunately, when I went to the matinée the audience was primarily children.
When Stu Miley (S Miley get it?) is tricked into staying in the ‘Downunder’ (the place where people in a coma go to) to provide nightmares for the denizens of ‘Downunder’ the film becomes much too frightening for children; but more visually elaborate and stimulating for adults.
The sound track starts out strong and only gets better.
Brendan Fraser is wonderful as Stu the comic book author who has a very dark side to him. Bridget Fonda is underutilized as Dr Julie McElroy the sweet and good-natured girlfriend of Stu. Megan Mullally as Kimmy, Stu’s sister who wants to pull the plug on Stu (though it is never real clear why) essentially reprises her role as ‘Karen’ from the television show ‘Will and Grace’ but she is always a delight to watch.
Rose McGowan (‘Scream’) is a visual treat as Kitty the lone citizen of ‘Downunder’ that is willing to assist Stu in returning to the real world. Whoopi Goldberg is fabulous as Death just the right amount of sly wickedness that you would expect of an embodied death.
But Chris Kattan does a real star turn as the Organ Doner his physical comedy and outrageous antics as a recently deceased gymnast are truly riotous and quite different from the characters he has played in past films or currently plays on Saturday Night Live it is worth seeing this film just for his performance.
The plot is actually fairly complicated and the graphics and visual style are brilliant and mind-blowing; but again, this is not a film for children. However, most adults that can see the possibility of the humour that might actually lie in death will certainly get a kick out of it.
