Monkey Movie Report

This film answers the burning question of what happens when your son, who is shaping up to be a major asshole, accidentally dies in an auto erotic asphyxiation accident.

This is a clever finely acted film and most of the credit for making this film work so well is Robin Williams. Wisely, the director reigned him in and didn't let him be the wild 'wacky' improv a minute Robin Williams who I have grown to despise to much lately. He's calm, controlled, and cool in this film and thank gawd for it. It wouldn't have worked otherwise. Daryl Sabara nails his role of the seething disgusting teenage son who snuffs it while dusting his dolphin.

I highly recommend this black comedy.

I loved this movie. I really like Robin Williams as a serious actor. I hate him as a "comic" actor or stand-up comic. he hasn't been funny for years. Another really god R.W. performance was in "One Hour Photo." Check it out.
