We recently watched Gibby on our family movie night, and it was a much enjoyable movie for everyone in the family. I will admit that I was hesitant about showing Gibby to my sons, because I was not sure that gymnastics and girl friendships plus a little love drama would have any interest. However, it turns out that once you throw a monkey into the mix, everything changes.Gibby dvd

Gibby stars Peyton Meyer (Girl Meets World), Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles), Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day) and Crystal the Monkey (Night At The Museum).

Katie is a young girl in need of some cheering up after the death of her mother, and it turns out that her teacher’s monkey Gibby is the right monkey for the task.

There was some out of control giggling going on at our house, when Gibby got loose and went to ring the neighbor’s doorbell a few times only to disappear and then lock him out of his house. It was monkey business at its best.

Gibby is a movie full of drama and humor, still while touching on loss and mourning. It also centers on team spirit, looking beyond the negatives, and how friendship can help when the world looks dark.
