I hate movies with monkeys

Reading this article about the poor out of work chimps really didn't make me feel bad at all. Not because I don't care about animals, but because I just hate movies with monkeys. I can't think of a single movie that a monkey or a chimp was prominently featured in that I thought was any good. I'm not sure why people in Hollywood think they're so damn funny. But I hope that the move away from using live monkeys will lead to using no monkeys, whether live or digitally created. The article mentions Dr. Dolittle, which wasn't bad, but the monkey wasn't really a huge part of the movie. What really bother me are the movies where the monkey is in a starring role, like Project X, or that one with Joey from Friends.
