Let me guess, it's okay that it's awful because it's a kids' film?
Well it's not okay. The moment we, as a species, stand by and say that a film of this quality, with a name like Monkey Up is okay, is the moment we may as well be monkeys, sat around throwing faeces at each other. Because that's what this film is, it is the cinematic equivalent of throwing faeces in the face of the audience. The acting is beyond terrible, especially the little girl. Child actors get a lot of stick for being bad that they sometimes don't deserve, but this is not one of those times. Almost all the jokes involve saying something, but saying 'monkey' or 'banana' where you wouldn't expect. The plot is the same template used in other Air Bud products (arguably not films) and all special effects look awful. It is not okay to make films like this, just because children will watch them. Firstly, some impressionably young minds will grow up thinking this piece of trash is what a film is supposed to look like, and secondly, their parents will have to watch it with them. Stop defending tasteless garbage designed to exploit gullible young minds for profit. 1/10 is generous for this thing.
