Editorial Reviews

You'll go bananas for baseball's funniest rookie when Friends star Matt LeBlanc teams up with the hottest third baseman this side of Cooperstown: Ed, a chimp who's the reigning champ of friendship and fly balls. Pitcher Jack "Deuce" Cooper (LeBlanc) is in a major bind when he makes it to the minor leagues and gets stage fright on the mound. Back on the farm, he's dynamite; in front of a crowd, he chokes. But good luck swings to the rescue when a hairy hero steps up to the plate! Jack's new teammate - and roommate - is Ed, a chimpanzee who turns out to be a born baseball player, a bona fide matchmaker and the best buddy Jack ever had. With Ed's help, the Santa Rosa Rockets just might clinch the pennant, and Jack will learn that the first rule of the game is to have fun. Jayne Brook, Jack Warden and Bill Cobbs co-star in this hilarious, heartwarming family comedy that hits a home run of laughs with every play.

    "Ed" is beyond bad: it is well into the realm of legend. You might not have expected that a well-funded Hollywood production could be so wretched,but you will become convinced once you have seen it. LeBlanc plays "Deuce," a country bumpkin turned minor league baseball player. The back story is well established with LeBlanc on his farm milking cows and refusing to eat ham that came from his favorite pig. He wears a John Deere cap (I honestly hope John Deere didn't actually pay for this ill-conceived product placement) to further establish the character. The cap makes LeBlanc look as much like a farmer as a tutu would make Marlon Brando look like a ballerina.

    Deuce gets signed by a minor league club, the Rockets, and is quickly assigned to live with the new mascot and third baseman, Ed Sullivan, a chimpanzee. Needless to say, Ed is hilarious (in theory) and gets into all sorts of wacky situations. Most of the situations are at the comedic level of the Three Stooges (if they had lobotomies) and feature such antics as forced toupee removal, making Deuce eat dog food, and lots and lots of flatus. Not only is the humor of gluteal crepitation repeatedly highlighted, but other bathroom-related issues regularly emerge. Thank goodness Ed knows how to use deodorizer spray!

    Ed initially is a mascot, but longs to play ball. After an official rules that "there's no rule requiring a player to be a Homo sapiens" Ed becomes the third baseman. Needless to say, this can't go without plot thickening, and after Ed is traded by the idiot toupee-wearing owner's son, there are multiple monkeynappings and chimp electrocutions. Along the way, there's a dreadful romance subplot, as Ed and an annoying child actress teach Deuce about love and life.

    First of all, I have to wonder what Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer and the rest of the "Friends" cast said to Matt LeBlanc when this stinker hit the big screen. This puppy came out right in the middle of the whole Must-See-TV heyday. If any of them gave praise to this film, and were believable....then they all deserved Emmys! There is truly nothing enjoyable about "Ed". I love a good goofy "monkey" movie. I grew up watching "Tarzan" flicks, just so I could see Cheetah make some goofy faces every now and again. Today, my kids and I chuckle at stuff like "MVP: Most Valuable Primate" or "Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp". I guess the key ingredient is that most successful monkey movies, actually feature a real monkey..not some person in a monkey suit. And not a monkey who somehow is over 5 feet tall in some shots. Monkeys are fun and funny to watch....people in monkey costumes are just embarassing! Now this may sound like I'm slamming the movie, but I actually recommend you see this stink-fest. There should be college courses dedicated to "Ed" in film school detailing just HOW NOT TO MAKE A MOVIE. You will be amazed at just how awful this film is. You have to truly see it to appreciate it's awfulness. I can now sit through "Battlefield Earth", "Ishtar", "Waterworld" and any other bad movie you wanna throw my way because I've now seen the worst Hollywood has to offer...I've seen "Ed".

    O.K., our P.E. teacher made us sit through this hour-and-fifteen minute load of junk one day during class one day. Let me say I only enjoyed the movie slightly because it beat being fried in the boiling heat outside. First of all, the plot has so many holes in it I seriously think that someone held the script up to the wall and shot twenty rounds at it. Secondly, I believe I watched an episode of Teletubbies once and laughed more then than I did during this movie. Finally, the movie is more bland than a block of tofu. No action, no drama, not the slightest trace of good humor.

    Jack "Deuce" Cooper (Matt LeBlanc) is a minor league baseball pitcher who's got the goods, but no self-confidence. Instead of looking up Dr. Phil, the team manager decides that a simian teammate is just what strike-out Deuce needs for a boost. Enter Ed, a chimp who's got more talent in his elongated little finger than the whole team put together. Ed's antics, including scarfing down chocolate-covered bananas and pulling toupees off of bald heads, were all "aped" by men in monkey suits and animatronics. Unfunny slapstick makes this DVD a real strike-out.

    This COULD have been a very funny movie but it fell well short of the mark. Having a person dressed up as a monkey (a child, very short man???) with a very weird face instead of something cute, is not a good start. I don't know why they didn't use a real monkey and perhaps some computer simulations for stunts to make this a whole lot better.

    This really IS a stinker, I couldn't even stay awake to see the last 30 minutes.
