MVP is a great movie. My 8 year old son has added it to his collection and wont part with it. The storyline is appealing to all ages. It has a happy ending where the underdog prevails. Definitely a keeper :)

"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."

"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."

"Regardless of what you order, you get full screen, which really pisses me off. There is no excuse for only making a full screen DVD in the 21st Century!!!"
