Adventures in Monkey Sitting

Dr Steven Phillip lives in a haunted mansion on a cliff with three chimpanzees whom he has been getting very close to in order to investigate the “link” between man and ape. Jane Chase, looking to make some extra cash is invited to his house to babysit the chimps, and upon arriving, she gets greeted at the door by a chimp named Lil Link who inappropriately communicated that he does not like her 80's hair. Sweet and spry, Jane gets by on her amiable tone Philips hides in the wardrobe for 2 weeks, but Jane thinks he left for London. She decides to stay with the chimps. Over time the chimps become more unruly staying out late and not making their beds. They begin to take over the house and to get involved in inter-tribal squabbles, leading to a confrontation with Jane.
