Storyline

MVP 2 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, a homeless skateboarder, and Ollie, 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.

Great Movie. A plethora of Comedy
14 August 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie...although it was a little corny. But you must expect that if you are going to watch a movie where a monkey is the star athlete of a team. However, i thought that there were some parts that were HYSTERICAL! I enjoyed this movie just as much as its prequel. I expect to see an MVP III within the coming year.
