Might tolerably amuse the under-10 crowd, but will prove borderline intolerable for everyone else.

March 26, 2009

It's forgettable matinee fodder.

Mr. LeBlanc ... is so blank that the only impression he makes is of having teeth that are very large and unnaturally white.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/5

The movie is breathtakingly unadventurous, with its cheesy story line, hackneyed ballpark-fable sentiments, "adorable" animal and collection of one-dimensional human nincompoops, headed by Matt LeBlanc

Why Bill Couturie, who produced the affecting AIDS-quilt docu Common Threads, took on this howler is as mysterious as the theory of evolution. Why LeBlanc gave up hiatus for the role is as mysterious as Hollywood.

A buddy comedy with big groans, potty humor, and drinking.

Audience Reviews for Ed

Ed is not a bad family movie. If you have little kids or are just really bored and are looking for a quick laugh this movie may do it for you. The lines are cheesy, the plot is even cheesier, and it's more then unrealistic. But it does deliver some funny parts as a man embraces a Chimpanzee as not only a teammate but as a new best friend.

Amazing entertaining comedy of a baseball-playing chimp who joins for the demoralised minor league team. More hilarious.
