Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monkey Mayhem is a short documentary about monkeys in their natural habitats. Monkeys and humans are very similar, down to social structure and community -- They love mischief and just "hanging out," and it's always fun to watch. This film is mostly fun monkey antics, but there are some scary moments during fights and when monkeys bare their teeth and gums. The narrator also makes some edgy comments, for example, stating that some monkeys "have the balls -- big ones."

Is It Any Good?
It's fun to watch the monkeys do their usual day-to-day activities, which often include lots of play, and there's really nothing better than watching monkeys do their thing. One monkey deftly juggles a Brazil nut, and we learn that all monkeys enjoy treats; India's bonnet macaques get to enjoy jackfruits In winter, while snow monkeys must adapt their diets to eat less appealing foods like pine needles and twigs. Some of the monkeys are a little scary looking, which makes this doc best for slightly older primate fans.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
