Reagan may have lost whatever credibility he had as an actor, but this, one of his most famous comedies, still makes for a fun diversion. Here he plays a professor whose latest experiment, which is also intended to save his relationship with his fiancée, involves teaching morals to a chimpanzee named Bonzo. It's all very silly; you can see the outcome a mile off, and equally predictable jokes arise as a result of the man/simian pairing, but the film is always enjoyable in spite of its shortcomings.
You're left wondering why Reagan didn't notch up more comedies in his acting career.
