For the most part, I quite enjoyed this nature-documentary that took a close-up look at the Macaque monkeys who live in and around an abandoned temple in the dense jungles of Sri Lanka.

But, I also have to agree with Fuzzy_Wuzzy below - Tina Fey's voice-over narration was really quite annoying. Her attempts at trying to be funny were totally cringe-worthy.

Monkey see. Monkey do.

From a strictly visual perspective only - Disneynature's "Monkey Kingdom" was, indeed, a super-impressive wildlife documentary. There's no question about it.

The excellent camerawork that took an up-close look at the macaque monkeys (with their "natural" bowl-cut hairdos) hanging out in the ruins of an abandoned temple in the jungles of Sri Lanka was truly awesome, to say the least.

Boy, these chattering, little critters (whose babies were so ugly they were actually cute) certainly were totally obsessed with grooming each other.

But - On the down side - This presentation's irksome, voice-over narration delivered by Tina Fey (who was trying so desperately to be funny) stank, big-time.

I really loathed Fey's commentary that kept trying to "humanize" these wild animals and reduce them to being a quaint, little novelty-act straight out of a pop-culture, fast-food, TV commercial.

A wonderful story of a monkey tribe in Sri Lanka - the photography was outstanding!
