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!
The Dog Who Saved Summer
The Dog Who Saved Summer
Loading video, please wait...
School's out for summer... but not at the Bannister house! When their beloved dog Zeus (voiced by Mario Lopez) destroys a party planned by Belinda (Elisa Donovan), Grandma (Mindy Sterling) suggests they send him to obedience school. Things start off on the wrong paw when Zeus's owner George (Gary Valentine) runs afoul of the school's no-nonsense instructor Vernon (Martin Kove) and Zeus manages to fail every lesson. To make matters worse, Vernon's K-9 assistant, Apollo (voiced by William Zabka) makes class no dog-gone fun. With Zeus failing to improve, the Bannister children Kara and Ben (Francesca Capaldi and Cole Jensen) fear that the pound may be Zeus's next stop. Desperate to turn things around, Zeus enlists the help of a janitor, Mr. Lee (James Hong), who shares his unique training methods. Will Zeus' newfound skills help him win top dog at the school's showcase and foil a trio of bumbling thieves (Dean Cain, Patrick Muldoon, Joey "Coco" Diaz) determined to make this a bummer summer?
