Clint Eastwood's venture into comedy as a brawling truck driver with his pet orangutan companion going from bar to bar and getting into raucous, rowdy adventures.
Everybody liked this film except the critics and what's not to like? Clint Eastwood and his monkey... Who make a better screen couple than Clint & Sondra Locke.
As a guilty pleasure movie, this is just fine, although a sequel, Any Which Way You Can, was completely unnecessary and was clearly a cash-grab.
