Rock bottom of 2015

Year 2015 in comedy has had some real misses: Paul Blart 2, Accidental Love, Hot Pursuit, to name a few. However, all those films are at least two leagues above this piece of ... 'art?'. Yeah, those films deserve three star reviews. At least *something* was done right there, I chuckled every now and then. This is a comedy that didn't made me laugh once. Yes, you heard right, not even once.

I really don't want to spend more time reviewing this abomination, but I feel compelled to do so, since it has no user reviews so far and the rating is 5.1. Really? You are telling me that Fantastic Four is worth 1 star less that this? Now the valid argument is that this is meant to be a family comedy. Fine, I can deal with more childish humor. But the level of dumbness here is out of chart. ALL 'jokes' are based on random tripping over and such, while there is so much overacting and underacting which isn't even in good harmony within.

Human characters are caricatures, poorly acted and with little to no personality. The dog is even worse. And I'm not blaming the dog, I'm blaming the dog trainers. The poor animal looks bored most of the time and the 'heroic' stuff he does are stale and uninteresting. It is not as silly as 101 Dalmatians, where the action is over-the-top and we have Cruella out of her mind chasing them. No, villains are lame, the main family is lame, dog trainers are especially lame and there is no purpose to this god-awful film. If you don't trust me, watch Bobsheaux's review on YouTube to verify.

This film is one of the worst films I have ever seen. Nothing works and it is never even 'so bad it's good', like Batman & Robin or The Room. I spend an hour and a half bored out of my mind and now it's my civic duty to warn the others: DO NOT WATCH IT!

Families will like it but it lacks originality in many respects;

Belinda (Elisa Donovan) and George (Gary Valentine) have multiple family problems to solve. First, Belinda is starting a party planning business and is harried. Second, their dog is unruly at times and needs obedience training. This is especially so after the canine runs amok at Belinda's first big party! Meanwhile, three bumbling petty criminals are hatching a plan; one of them is being consulted while still in jail! That's Ted (Dean Cain) As the doggy takes intense training with a Rambo type and his talented police dog, the thieves have their eye on a big jewel heist in the shop next door! It doesn't take long for them to realize they will get into the canine school basement area and dig into the gem store. The Oriental janitor may be on the lookout, while he also helps train George's dog. Can the good guys win while the bad guys go down? You bet! This film is pleasant enough and families will like it. Valentine is very funny as are the trio of perps. But, the flick definitely has a case of deja vu all over again, as many happenings may seem familiar. There are also, naturally, a few flatulence jokes, which are almost the lowest form of humor. Nevertheless, if you love animals, comedy, and family friendly films, this is one to add to your list.

Why won't this series end!

This movie begins by confirming Kevin James big brother still can't find real acting work as he's back for another He also apparently suffered some powder burns as he's inexplicably burned in the opening scenes. The mother apparently is a party planner. Zeus of course gets blamed for Carmen sandiego's yorkie destroying the party. So the family mom calls her mom who is leading scout retreat though deathly altergies to poison ivy. "Mom I told you to stay of the Twitter" She suggests obedience school. After a scene of being blamed for a yorkie trashing a party, we get to see the wet behind the ears bandits with their new teammate getting released from prison due to a lack of evidence, I would have thought it was more do to a lack of what were they even doing illegal (sneaking a camera into a doggy day care?). Dean Cain remains in jail though for some reason... I dunno

Next we move to Zeus going to Sgt Slaughter (played by what happens when you mix Ben Stiller and Will Ferrels DNA together) obedience school.

we then see dumb and dumber in drag in a jewelry store casing it.

We then return back again to the school Kevin James brother is stupid as usual, he eats a dog treat and gets sick. We then see Zeus interact with the dogs. he gets humiliated by rintintin k9copout while Mr. Miagi knock off looks on.

We then see the crooks back with dean Cain still in jail discussing breaking him out.

We then go back to the mother with the father the importance of this obedience school thing (she should have said it was because it was necessary to keep the story going.)

Anyway lets stop following every scene as its too painful.

The important to know

Kevin James brother is a fat lazy slob. Zeus is a mentally challenged Former Soprano's guy is flatulent and stupid The mother is an overbearing ice queen. The kids are noise though the little girl is the most mature character in the movie. The Dog Trainer is nuts Mr. Lee has been in a lot of movies that were much better then this. With whoever Fred is (his brother apparently), I don't know why Dean Cain is in this movie. Carmen Sanediego is supposed to be hated. Rin tin tin is a mob boss

Plot is Zeus is blamed for being bad, he goes through crap at obedience school while crossing paths with the stupidest criminals ever, and gets trained by discount Mr. miyaggi. The mother meanwhile plans a summer themed party for the dog trainer.

The Acting in this movie is criminal, especially the voice acting. Mario Lopez is the main character, you'd think after 5 of these prior he'd have some idea how to actually do voice acting or at least make us feel something other then nausea. Kevin Jame's brother seems to have taken and doubled the amount of obnoxious poor acting and hamminess he shows in this movie to make up for missing the last one.

Mario Lopez actually even makes a cameo as himself in the movie... how sad is that when you have to voice a character to hype yourself up (funny the last movie was easter themed and this is the one with an easter egg) Watching this movie is like experiencing a dream when you eat to much food before bed, its incoherent, something you wouldn't think would be capturable on film. Its beyond stupid when its all over you ask yourself "What just happened?" It features rocky rip off training montages, scene transitions that look out of power point. poison ivy jokes, uncomfortable animal scenes, a surprising lack of the encounters of Zeus with the criminals, a lot of diaper change jokes, something going on with the boy characters that is spoofing something out of spy movies. I do have to say it fascinates me how many songs they found that sound like as close as you can get to "eye of the tiger" or the "best around" without paying the royalties for those tracks.

I really hope this is it for this series. Kids really deserve better then this garbage.
