Don't tell mom the Babysitter's dead is in it. She was also the mother of an abused child in kindergarten cop. She has been in a lot of critically panned 90s comedies lol. I like all three movies. Jack warden does a good job in this movie as best he can. Joey from friends gets a very easy paycheck for this movie and he does not add much to the movie. The real stars of the movie are the talented actors under the monkey suit. The monkey in the movie fields third base very well as does the actors and they do all the demands of a physical role of playing a monkey. Really amazing work that most fail
To realize. Howard the Duck had the talents of Ed Gale. This movie had the talents of Jay Caputo and Denise Cheshire I think. Well great job to them. This movie I've heard described as a bad baseball
Movie. I feel that is most inaccurate. It's anything but a bad baseball movie. It is not super in depth but it shows some
Baseball scenes and atmosphere and I feel
There are other reasons to criticize the movie. It's certainly not a perfect movie but most children would
Like it i would suspect
Jack 'Deuce' LeBlanc has a rocket arm who is caught in a recreational game, drafted, and placed in the minors. He lacks control of his hard stuff and gets hammered throwing off speed pitches. The minor league team doesn't make much money; so in a desperation act, they purchase a baseball playing monkey to play third. Jack and the monkey have to be roommates and Jack's life changes forever.
"We don't carry bats in your size."
"We do now."
Bill Couturie, director of numerous documentaries including 30 for 30, Letters to Jackie, Vietnam Requiem, and Earth and the American Dream, delivers Ed. The storyline for this picture is miserable as is the monkey which is a funny man in a costume. The acting is dreadful but kids may enjoy the plot.
"I think we have a rocket arm."
I came across this on HBOGO and had to watch it with my daughter (we had never seen this before). This is a ridiculous kids movie with a horrible concept; however, I found my daughter giggling throughout the movie. This probably deserves less than 2 stars, but I am giving it two stars due to my daughter thoroughly enjoying this film.
"I'm going to spank that monkey."
Joey Tribbiani (aka Matt LeBlanc) plays a farmboy who's in his rookie season with a minor league baseball team. Another player on the team is a chimp.
The rest is the usual sports cliche rags-to-riches stuff with jokes which fall flat.
I can deal with the dumb story, juvenile acting and an annoying ape, but the direction is incredibly bad, even for a terrible movie. It may have enough to entertain youngster, but for everyone else it may struggle to hold interest.
