Bedtime for Bonzo is a 1951 comedy film directed by Fred de Cordova. It revolves around the attempts of the central character, Professor Peter Boyd (played by Ronald Reagan), to teach human morals to a chimpanzee, hoping to solve the "nature versus nurture" question. He hires a woman (played by Diana Lynn) to pose as the chimp's mother while he plays father to it.

This movie is one of the most remembered of Reagan's acting career.

A sequel was entitled Bonzo Goes to College (1952).
