What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Monkey Business is all about the silliness, and mature content is at a minimum. At one point Groucho tries to cultivate an affair with a married woman, and there's a slapsticky fistfight at the movie's climax. Some of the jokes deal with topics and people -- especially French crooner Maurice Chevalier -- better known in the 1930s. This film is not to be confused with another comedy from Hollywood's black-and-white era, 1951's Monkey Business with Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, and Marilyn Monroe
