Editorial Reviews

When Jack, a sign language-speaking chimp, is sold to a research lab, he makes a break for freedom - and ends up stranded in the frozen northlands. Befriended by two teens, Jack's talent for ice skating soon turns him into the local hockey team's secret weapon. Now, playoffs are in full swing. The lab officials are closing in. And Jack has one chance to prove that when it comes to skating away with the affections of an entire town, he doesn't monkey around!

I ordered this movie for my husband's cousin, who's 7 and crazy about hockey. He loves the movie and has added it to his constantly playing hockey movie marathon. You'll love this fun story too about a Monkey who breaks out and joins the hockey team.

we are all getting tired of the Disney's continuous effort to make air bud a touching film, and Kevin Zegers tries...very hard at all the rolls he does. So I say ditch Air Bud and watch something a little bit different. i recommend this movie: MVP. great for the whole family, touching, and Kevin Zegers bring out the best in the movie. It has dry humor sometimes, young kids wont understand it, and touching heart felt moments. Other then that...a wonderful family film!

Simply put this film is a work of art. An epic tale of love, adventure, and tragedy peppered with cutting wit and humor, it is a masterpiece worthy of the immortal bard Shakespeare himself. Never have I seen such a talented thespian as Jack. His masterful acting is reminiscent of DeNiro in Raging Bull and the action scenes would make Schwarzenegger himself weep with pride. The camera work is amazing and the scene where Jack must decide the fate of the conductor's hat is so soulful and suspenseful I literally had white knuckles from clenching my Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle waiting for the outcome. I shouted aloud, "No Jack, you mustn't give in to the dark side of your soul!" as I punched the side of my trailer in rage and disgust (which startled Moonbeam my wolf). Then I breathed a deep sigh of relief when he chose the path of good by returning it. I must warn those of you with heart conditions, this film may be too intense for you.

Bravo Jack, you've captured our hearts. Bravo.

If you can't laugh at this movie then you've got some major issues. While some people may look at it as a wonderful and touching family film, it's just as great if you're in the 18-24 demographic and looking for some low-brow (but highly entertaining) comedy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but a hockey-playing monkey is just about the best thing that's ever happened to Hollywood. And let's not forget that Jack went on to become a master skateboarder and snowboarder (in MVP 2 and MXP, respectively). This monkey is a top-notch actor, athlete, scholar, and gentleman.

This movie is very cute for any monkey lover. It was hysterical watching how they got the monkey to play hockey, but completely entertaining. I was impressed. But the real fun was watching my six year old cheering the monkey on and being so into it.

Bought it as a joke for my uncle who just recently started playing hockey. It went over well. Who will look at this review anyway?

In the fine tradition of monkey movies comes MVP, Most Valuable Primate. This film only got a limited release here in the states, but in the fine country of Canada it was the number one kids film, and who could blame them for making it so. This film follows the adventures of Jack, a mischeavous little primate that is a wizz at playing hockey. So, what is the worst team in the league going to do, of course, recruit Jack to come in as their ringer and assist them in winning games. This film comes to us from the makers of Air Bud, a fine line of family films, not personally my thing, since they all had a dog, monkeys are the way to go. This film is great for everyone. It has elements that everyone can get into, team work, overcoming adversity, hockey, and of course, a crazy little primate named Jack.
