An unlikely friendship is forged when an overachieving chimpanzee meets a lonely boy with a love for snowboarding in MXP: Most Extreme Primate. Jack the chimpanzee (MVP and MVP II) has given up hockey and skateboarding in favor of life with his family at the El Simian Nature Reserve, but a Mexican vacation gone awry lands Jack in Blackbrush, Colorado--right in the path of a lonely boy named Pete who's just moved into town. The two quickly become close friends, and eventually Pete teaches Jack to snowboard and they become partners in a snowboarding race. Factor in two greedy men looking to make their fortunes by kidnapping Jack and Jack's worried (human) "Mom" trying to track down Jack from Mexico in spite of a fierce hurricane, and a very familiar plot runs its predictable course. Unlike the previous MVP movies, this third production lacks intensity and suspense and ultimately leaves the viewer feeling uninvolved and uninterested. A brief demonstration by snowboarder Bjorn Leines serves as a high point for snowboarding fans. (Ages 5 to 10) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

After an exciting year playing hockey with the Seattle Simians and a brief stint learning how to skateboard, Jack the amazing chimp is about to go where no chimp has gone before -- snowboarding down snowy mountain peaks, carving and shredding all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars MXP Rocks January 30, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
My kids love the whole MVP series, and this one is just as enjoyable as the others! Highly reccomended!!!! By the way, the music from the Jay's band in the movie is great - and I found that the songs are from a real band whose cd you can buy here on Amazon. They are called the dynamite boy and all the songs from the movie are on their Somewhere in America CD too.
Jack is cool in this movie with his snow boarding and I think you will enjoy the movie, so GO FOR IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! February 17, 2004
Format:DVD
Of the 3 films in the MVP trilogy, I think MXP might be the best. I watched this one with a few friends before going out on a Saturday night. The comic hijinks of Jack and the other monkeys, as wells as the complete aloofness of every adult in the movie who fails to see Jack climbing trees, eating food, and sneaking onto airplanes dressed in a sombrero and pancho is incredible. This film sells itself. 1 monkey + 1 snowboard = awesome. Is MXS (Most Extreme Surfer) next? I hope so.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best movie ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! January 26, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
I really love this movie. Jack the chimp is so cute and a really good snowboarder he rocks. Jay the big brother is the cuttest guy i have ever seen and his band Rocks. Jay seems like the best big brother i wish my brother was like him. Pete is the best snowboarder i wish i could go snowboarding with him he is so cute too. I wish Jay's band had a c.d.. Oh and i really love the outtakes and the music video. And the brain freeze scene is so funny. I really love this movie it makes me want to snowboard and start a band. This movie rocks rocks rocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Fun January 26, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Another great film in the "MVP - Most Valuable Primate" series.
Jack does it again and pulls of some amazing stunts that will delight kids and adults.
This is a family film that lives up to the description with no unexpected embarassing situations that parents will have difficulty explaining to their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Movie Ever Made! April 3, 2004
Format:DVD
This movie was hilarious. It is definitely a movie for teens. I am not joking when I say that this monkey walks, talks, and acts like a human. Plus he throws his balls at unsuspecting victims. You will fall over laughing, especially if you are under the influence. The jokes in this movie are not funny at all, but this monkey acts like he is constantly on crack, and he always jitters and shakes. Plus you can tell that everytime he is snowboarding that someone pushed him down the mountain and he is trying to stop, but he can't. In one scene you can see the guys hand pushing him off of a jump. It was probably the funniest thing I have ever seen. Go see this movie... no, wait, go buy this movie! It will be worth it!
