Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers star in this classic comedy about a chemist who discovers the secret of eternal youth. For years Dr. Barnaby Fulton (Grant) has been working on a youth-restoring serum with little success, until the day a chimpanzee gets loose in the lab and accidentally concocts the exact formula Fulton has been searching for. The hilarity begins when, unbeknownst to anyone, the chimpanzee pours it into the office water cooler. With each successive drink, everyone gets younger and younger. When Fulton's stunning secretary Lois (Monroe) and his lovely wife Edwina (Rogers) get a taste of the potion, the chemical reaction is explosive and hilarious fun!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Monkey Business ranks with the best works of the American cinema.
Fresh: The rather strained, juvenile high jinks do have their funny lines and situations, plus Monroe as an incompetent stenographer.
Fresh: he timing of the gags can put most Hollywood comedies, never mind TV sitcoms, to shame.
GAAAHHH!!! CUTEST MOVIE EVER!!!!
This is one of cutest movie's of all the classic films out there! Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers are in their prime, the plot is a little silly, but that's what makes it funny, i highly recommend it!
One of the great screwball comedies of all time, priceless. If only they could write them like this know.
With a different cast, this wouldn't have gone very far, but Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers are perfect. Their timing and delivery is everything. A very fun movie.
