Storyline

Jack is a three-year-old chimpanzee who has been the subject of a long-term experiment by Dr. Kendall, a researcher who been teaching Jack to communicate through sign language. Jack, however, has not been making progress fast enough for Dr. Kendall's sponsor, Dr. Peabody, who has cut off his funding and sold Jack to a medical research lab. Afraid of what could happen to his simian friend, Dr. Kendall sneaks Jack out of his home in the lab; however, Jack is accidentally sent to Canada, where he gets loose and is discovered by Tara, a deaf girl who recognizes Jack's sign language. Jack has an even bigger surprise for Tara's older brother Steven; Jack scrambles onto the ice in the midst of practice for Steven's junior league hockey team, and he and his teammates discover the monkey has a natural talent for the game. With Jack on the team, Steven's team is on their way to a league championship, but Jack's notoriety attracts the unfortunate attention of Dr. Peabody, who are determined to ... Written by Anonymous

is there anything worse ?....
29 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Always on Daytime Sky movies, terrible plot, awful wooden acting. Was watching this while decorating, and being truthful, was difficult to decide whether this or the paint was more interesting to watch.

AVOID AVOID AVOID.

I do not understand why there are now three versions of this primate film, and why SKY seem it important enough to show all of these, most weekdays, several times a day.

Perhaps it was because they got them on discount.

Please vote with your feet and get sky and other companies to take this dross off our screens.
