A Capuchin Monkey
12 September 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Seeing who was in the cast I thought this might have been a film from the Disney Studios. It did feature as the teen male lead Peyton Meyer who stars as the resident hunk on Girl Meets World. It also is as wholesome as a Disney Studio film.

Saying that I thought Gibby was a pleasant afternoon's viewing about a young girl Shelby Lyon who at one time was a promising gymnast, but who lost all interest after her Mom passed away. Then when her science teacher is given an opportunity over the summer to work abroad she has to Lyon is picked by her to babysit a Capuchin Monkey named Gibby whom she keeps and studies.

Gibby helps a lot in making Lyon laugh and smile again. Maybe she'll also try gymnastics again if for no other reason than to get back at Ysa Penarejo the school's local Cruela DeVille who now rules the girl's athletic roost. She also likes Peyton Meyer who likes Lyon and that's more reason for a war.

Nobody's career is going to be hurt by association with Gibby, it's a nice film for the family even if Disney didn't do it.
