A young teenage girl, Katie, can not snap out of her depression after losing her mother.  Katie has lost interest in her school, her friends, and gymnasitcs. All that changes in the summer when she is asked to monkeysit Gibby, her science teacher's Capuchin Monkey.


Taking care of the monkey changes her life in a big way.  Gibby's happy-go-lucky personality renews Katie's zest for life.  Gibby helps her with gymnastics, renewing friendships (including finding a boyfriend), and overcoming her nemesis, a mean girl who is out to beat Katie at everything.

Gibby was fortunate to have several great original songs - "Monkey Business" by Erin and Taylor along with "Hotter than Hot" by Jake and the Rum Man and several contemporary hit songs such as "Alright With Me" by Kris Allen, "Until We See the Sun" by Luara Melody and "Warm Whispers" by Missy Higgins.  Also, there were many original songs used as background music throughout the film.  Here is the orginal songs and links where it is available online.
