Remake with great production values, make-up and Helena Bonham Carter looking good as a monkey, but it lacks any form of originality or edge with a twist so obvious that it is impossible that the writers thought it was smart. Mark Wahlberg is also a boring lead and the cowardly ape is annoying. Tim Burton's worst? Possibly.
It only took me 12 years to find somethign to enjoy about this film. Marky Mark and the Monkey Bunch is not that bad on its own. Keep in mind that it is a metaphor about Japan, WWII, and the atomic bomb, and the ending should make even less sense in that context.
