This movie was purely amazing, it is %100 up there with the greats such as Air Buds , Baetoven 3 , and The God Father.The acting was purely amazing and could truly compare to no other but those listed.This movie also showed my friends and i the true meaning of friendship and family. We also learned some about the great sport of baseball. At times I was busting out laughing others i was crying but at almost all times i was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next to this fun loving monkey . I would suggest this to children and adults of all ages . Inshort this movie was nothing but fantastic with no faults what so ever.
