OK, this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I mean, why do these people even bother to do a FIFTH one of this. What's next? Tennis? Roller Blading? These movies are like exactly the same as the MVP series. Everything they can't teach a dog to do, such as play hockey or snowboard, they teach the monkey to do. It's the same freaking story every time, I feel sad for the people who actually pay money to go see these movies in a theater because these movies are completely obvious and I would rather spend my money on some other movie that is actually interesting. Also, I wouldn't recommend seeing and MVP movies unless you find it more amusing to watch a monkey play numerous sports.
