YMMV / Monkeybone

  • Bizarro Film: Contains Surreal Horror mixed with Deranged Animation.
  • Freud Was Right: The film opens with Monkeybone being revealed as the main character's first erection as a boy.
  • He Really Can Act: Chris Kattan, who convincingly does a Brendan Fraser impression — and is convincing as a jelly-limbed corpse, too.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The cat girl implications of eating the mouse guy.
    • The coma realm in general.
    • The Nightmare sequence where Stu ends up in one of his paintings that involves a surgeon trying to cut into Stu, who is a carrot in this scene.
    • A lot of the inhabitants of Down Town. They really are the monsters of nightmares.
    • The scenes where Stu is forced to take the body of a dead corpse might be disturbing to some viewers.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Imagine if Cool World had better visuals, but made even less sense.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The stop motion is easily the best thing about the movie.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Stu nearly dies, leaving his body open to use to another soul — a chance pounced upon by his eponymous creation (which, in his head, is the embodiment of his libido). While Monkeybone wreaks surreal havoc in this world, his creator has to barter with Dream and Death in the hereafter.
