What was the comedy movie involving a monkey going into space with three other astronauts?

This sounds extremely strange, but does anybody remember a movie involving a space mission with three people and a monkey, one of the astronauts was a woman and one was a kind of bumbling, comic relief guy- at one point in the movie, all of them are supposed to enter hibernation pods of some sort, but the monkey takes the fall guy's pod so he has to try to use the monkey's pod, but of course it is too small so he stays awake and is playing with the space food and stuff when the rest of the crew wakes up.

Sound familiar to anybody? Maybe some kind of spoof of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

    Rocketman (1997)

    starring Harland Williams, Jessica Lundy, William Sadler, Jeffrey DeMunn, James Pickens, Jr., Peter Onorati, Beau Bridges, Raven as Ulysees the chimpanzee astronaut

    IMDB synopsis:

    Fred Z. Randall is geeky and obnoxious spacecraft designer, who gets the chance to make his dream come true and travel to Mars as a member of the first manned flight there.

    From Wikipedia:

    Fred Z. Randall, along with Commander William "Wild Bill" Overbeck, Astronaut Julie Ford (Jessica Lundy), and Ulysses, a chimp that was trained for looking for fossils on the surface (and just happens to be Fred's roommate on the ship), blast off into space. In order to save food, all crew members are put to "hypersleep" for eight months while the space shuttle makes its trip towards Mars. As if on purpose, Ulysses mistakes Randall's "hypersleep chamber" for his own and Randall has to sleep in Ulysses' chimp-shaped chamber. Randall falls asleep for only 13 minutes and has to stay up for eight months.
