Overview

Home Improvement's Richard Karn lends his talents to this family-oriented animal-sports adventure from the producers of another animal-sports picture, Air Bud. MVP II: Most Vertical Primate picks up the story line of the first film in the series, MVP: Most Valuable Primate, but transfers its star monkey from the suburbs to the city, and switches his sport of choice from hockey to skateboarding. MVP II opens with the lovable Jack being ousted from his hockey team, the Seattle Simians, and having to hit the road after being falsely accused of league misconduct. Jack ends up in the city, where he's befriended by Ben (screen newcomer Scott Goodman), a homeless skateboarder, and Ollie (Karn), a skate shop owner. Jack proves to be as adept at mastering the half-pipe as he does at delivering a slap shot, and before long, he and Ben are crashing amateur skateboarder competitions all over the country.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
If you don't think a monkey can shoot a screaming slap shot like Al MacInnis or get radical on a skateboard like Tony Hawk, then you don't know Jack -- the simian star of MVP: Most Valuable Primate. One of 1999's sweetest discoveries, Jack returns and makes a monkey out of an arrogant teammate on the Seattle Simians squad. When Jack is falsely accused of biting a player from another team, he takes to the streets, where he meets Ben, a young runaway and skateboard enthusiast. They become fast friends as they elude the authorities and take turns on Ben's skateboard. Home Improvement costar Richard Karn gets the big hominid role here, portraying the friendly skateboard shop owner who takes in the duo and helps Ben enter a local skateboarding competition. The producers of Air Bud and its sequels score again with this G-rated comedy, which holds together nicely while proving beyond a doubt that adorable skateboarding monkeys are awesome.
