Movie Info

If, in the world of the movies, a dog can play basketball and a donkey can play football, why can't a chimp play baseball? That question is answered in the family comedy Ed. Jack "Deuce" Cooper (Matt LeBlanc) is a struggling baseball pitcher who has great natural talent but keeps choking under pressure. Traded to a class A minor league team, Deuce is appalled to discover his third baseman -- and roommate on the road -- is a chimpanzee named Ed Sullivan. While Ed can actually hold his own on the

Might tolerably amuse the under-10 crowd, but will prove borderline intolerable for everyone else.

The movie is breathtakingly unadventurous, with its cheesy story line, hackneyed ballpark-fable sentiments, "adorable" animal and collection of one-dimensional human nincompoops, headed by Matt LeBlanc

Mr. LeBlanc ... is so blank that the only impression he makes is of having teeth that are very large and unnaturally white.

It's forgettable matinee fodder.

Why Bill Couturie, who produced the affecting AIDS-quilt docu Common Threads, took on this howler is as mysterious as the theory of evolution. Why LeBlanc gave up hiatus for the role is as mysterious as Hollywood.

A buddy comedy with big groans, potty humor, and drinking.

A monkey playing baseball, what could be cuter? In the case of Bill Couturiť's Ed, you could slap Chunk from The Goonies in in some Victoria's Secret lingerie and you'd have something more attractive.

Some would say that kids may like it, but kids enjoy eating packets of sugar - that's no reason to encourage it.

Much of the movie will make no sense to someone looking for more than a parade of potty jokes.

There's never a moment when you think it's a real chimp, so even that novelty is nonexistent.

One of the worst, most wrong-headed "family" fantasies to come along in some time.

Audience Reviews for Ed

Ed is not a bad family movie. If you have little kids or are just really bored and are looking for a quick laugh this movie may do it for you.

The lines are cheesy, the plot is even cheesier, and it's more then unrealistic. But it does deliver some funny parts as a man embraces a Chimpanzee as not only a teammate but as a new best friend.

Amazing entertaining comedy of a baseball-playing chimp who joins for the demoralised minor league team. More hilarious.
