It may be a kids movie, but that doesn't change the fact that
it's stupid. Mind-numbingly stupid.
Joey Tribbiani from the TV sitcom Friends (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 who absurdly becomes the player of their season.
The rest is the usual sports cliche rags-to-riches stuff with
jokes which fall flat.
can deal with the dumb story, juvenile acting and an annoying animatronic ape, but the direction is incredibly bad, even for a terrible movie. It may have enough to entertain youngsters, but for
everyone else it may struggle to hold interest. Only watch this if you really want to see a talented comedy actor slumming for a quick buck.
