VIDEO: Monkeybone (2001)

We’re sorry...

This video is no longer available due to the shutdown of Blip.tv.

Here’s another one of Joey’s older reviews (so please excuse the video/audio issues) where he looks at the Henry Sellick-directed box office bomb Monkeybone! Brendan Fraser plays a cartoonist (basically, a thinly veiled takeoff on R. Crumb) who gets sent to the afterlife and/or Cool World while one of his creations, a cartoon monkey (voiced, oddly enough, by John Turturro) takes control of his comatose body and runs amok.

    Oh, Bridget Fonda. Where did you go wrong?

      Huh.  She married Danny Elfman, then apparently retired to maybe be a full time mother.  But apparently by then she was doing television movies so maybe it is just a matter of the roles drying up.

         Well if she is married to Danny Elfman, she certainly wouldn’t be lacking any-thing in her day to day life.
        And hey, if she really wanted to get into acting again, it should be pretty easy to get a hold on tim burtons phone number.

          I was actually asking where she went wrong in her film career. WHY her roles dried up in the first place. 

          I always preferred Jennifer Jason Leigh though. I thought JJL would have a long career. She could act her ass off and she was gorgeous (positively a goddess in Hudsucker). I know she’s still working and had a recurring role on Weeds, but in the late 80’s she was a can’t-miss bet as an A-Lister all the way. Hollywood is fickle.

            IDK, though knowing that her husband is Danny Elfman is news to me!

             Meh, well, Hollywood is a tough place to be, and it’s an even tougher places for actress’s, where the roles avalaible are considerable fewer than the male roles, are often written for a “Younger actress.” and many directors are just fine with hiring a photo-model instead of an actual actress.

            So well. plenty of talented actress’s just goes out, or plainly never really gets any shot…. and no I am bot bitter!

    This looks like an… interesting movie.. 

    • Tedzey71

      Haven’t seen it? That’s a first…

         Well, being foreign in the most litterate sense of the word does indeed come with its perks.

        • Tedzey71

          I guess this means you were spared ;D

  • Thomas Stockel

    God, Brendan Fraser, why do you do this to yourself?  Dudley Do Right?  George of The Jungle?  This thing?  You are a better actor than this!

    • Tedzey71

      lol, I might as well review those two films. A Jay Ward/Brendan Fraiser Double Feature!
