Mxp: Most Xtreme Primate is a 2004 family film directed by Robert Vince. It is the third installment in the Air Buddies franchise and follows the story of Jack, a highly skilled snowboarder with a mischievous chimpanzee named MXP, who becomes his newest and most unexpected snowboarding partner. The story begins with MXP, a chimpanzee, arriving at a veterinary clinic in Colorado. The chimp has been traveling around the world with his owner, Louie (played by Ian Bagg), who is a circus trainer. MXP is incredibly skilled when it comes to skateboarding, surfing, and even snowboarding. However, Louie's abusive behavior towards the animal causes MXP to flee and seek refuge in Jack's truck.
Jack (played by Devin Douglas Drewitz) is a talented snowboarder, who lives with his widowed mother, Cindy (played by Britt Irvin), and his little sister, Hannah (played by Belinda Metz), in Crestview, Colorado. Jack's father, who was also an avid snowboarder, passed away in a tragic accident when Jack was just a toddler. Jack is determined to honor his father's legacy and become a professional snowboarder himself.
Jack discovers MXP in his truck and is at first reluctant to help him. However, when he realizes the chimp's incredible snowboarding skills, he sees an opportunity to make some extra money by performing with him at a local ski resort. Jack trains MXP to perform various snowboarding tricks, and they become an instant sensation.
Their success attracts the attention of the media, as well as a famous snowboarder named Alex (played by Trevor Wright). Alex offers Jack a spot on his snowboarding team, provided he can beat him in a snowboarding competition. Jack sees this as an opportunity to prove himself and provide a better life for his family.
As Jack and MXP prepare for the competition, they face several challenges. Louie reappears and tries to reclaim MXP, causing trouble for Jack and his family. Additionally, MXP's mischievous behavior and lack of discipline cause tension between him and Jack.
Despite the challenges, Jack and MXP work together to overcome obstacles and become better partners on and off the slopes. They develop a special bond and an unbreakable friendship that leads them to victory in the snowboarding competition.
The film's notable cast includes Robby Benson as the film's narrator and voice of MXP. Devin Douglas Drewitz delivers a solid performance as Jack, portraying a determined and passionate snowboarder. Trevor Wright is charismatic as Alex, the arrogant and talented snowboarder who serves as Jack's rival. Ian Bagg's depiction of Louie, MXP's abusive owner, is chilling and an interesting contrast to MXP's lovable persona.
Overall, Mxp: Most Xtreme Primate is an entertaining family film that follows the adventures of an unexpected partnership between a young snowboarder and a mischievous chimpanzee. The film showcases various snowboarding tricks and techniques, making the movie a treat to watch for snowboarding enthusiasts. It delivers an important message about animal welfare and the need for responsible pet ownership. Along with a lighthearted story and a lovable primate protagonist, Mxp: Most Xtreme Primate succeeds as an enjoyable family movie.
