A fantasy world in the mind of a psychologically troubled cartoonist, while he is deep in a coma. He is trapped in this outrageous land, somewhere between life and death, he must find a way to return to reality.

We do not recommend this movie.

…Lots of sexual innuendo and puns, including references to masturbation and male and female genitalia…
—Kids-in-Mind
…“Monkeybone” is sly, irreverent, and occasionally downright nasty…
—James Berardinelli, Movie-Reviews
…this PG-13 film is definitely not for children. Numerous comic phrases deal with sexual innuendo and sexual slang…

Comments from young people
This movie never made clear that heaven or hell even exist and yet dealt a lot with a odd sort of purgatory. People could bargain with death. Awful! The main character has an insatiable libido which is referenced several times. He also lives with a girlfriend. The Discovery Channel is “animal porn,” and there is, also, a lot of other sexual muck in this movie. Along with partial nudity (bare rear), cleavage, lots of gross humor and innuendo, and crude references.

Also violence including nails being driven into the head of a poor child, a head exploding, a doctor ripping a corpse’s organs out, and several other gross scenes. There is a significant amount of swearing. There is smoking and drinking. An awful film!
My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive / 2]
