I’ve partnered with Air Bud Entertainment to bring you this post.
Crystal the Monkey has landed a starring role in a new family friendly movie from Air Bud Entertainment. We’ve watched Crystal the monkey in The Hangover and Night at the Museum movies and always thought Crystal was so funny and adorable, so we’re excited to check out this new movie. The kids love movies with talking animals, and I do too, so this is something the whole family will be able to watch together and enjoy.

He escapes with the help of his new family, the Andrews, and his hilarious primate siblings, Mort, Mooner, and Melody in an uproarious chase that proves Monty really is the ‘fast and the furriest’. Together they help Monty discover that fame and fortune come and go, but family is forever!
