    The only thing funnier than a chimpanzee is a chimpanzee on roller skates.

    Uh, sorry Adam, I will have to decline your challenge.

    My personal favorite, though technically not a monkey, is Every Which Way But Loose, starring Clint Eastwood and Clyde the Orangutang.

    I don't think this came out to a trilogy, because Clyde attacked Clint a couple of times while they were filming. Of course, maybe Clint was upset at being upstaged by an orangutang.

    Again, not technically a monkey, and not technically a movie...but BJ & The Bear to me was the top of the heap when it came to Man and his primate buddy.

    BJ and the Bear was the focus of the above quote.

    Ten points to the indentifier of the movie from which it came.
