When Holly Heckerling heads to Hollywood to work as an animal trainer on a big-budget movie, she finds herself fantasizing about leaving New York behind for good. But she's reluctant to say goodbye to her boyfriend, Tom, or Tallullah, the monkey who stole her heart during a pet-sitting assignment. Plus, even though she's in her element wrangling monkeys, ducks, and snakes, she isn't sure how to handle the A-list actor who's following her around like a lovesick puppy. Soon she realizes her real decision isn't where to live, but to whom she should give her heart.

She is to nurture and train animal stars. Her toughest assignment proves not to be monkeys especially since Tallulah has joined her snakes, ducks oh my her most difficult thespian is actor Colin Daltry whose puppy love is driving Holly up a tree.---------------- Holly of MONKEY LOVE fame goes west to cause havoc in Hollywood as she did in Manhattan. Once again ignoring WC Field¿s first law of stardom not to perform with children or animals, Holly¿s co-stars are a menagerie. Tallulah is as zany as ever while Holly trips her way through one fiasco after another with Colin panting for her. Fans will enjoy this wild crazy contemporary as the laughs keep coming in this jocular frolic.-------------- Harriet Klausner
