Movie Review: Old Dogs

olddogsJohn Travolta and Robin Williams star in Old Dogs, the hilarious family comedy that will have you howling. And it’s even more fun to watch on Disney Blu-Ray with its theater-quality picture and sound.

Two best friends have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of seven-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The clueless bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the children, leading to one debacle after another, with a gorilla and some pecking penguins – and perhaps to a newfound understanding of what’s really important in life. Featuring a riotously funny supporting cast including Seth Green, Kelly Preston, Matt Dillon, and Lori Loughlin, Old Dogs is a laugh-a-minute comedy filled with heart in Blu-ray High Definition.

The critics may have pretty much hated this movie, but my husband and I and all of my kids thought it was pretty darn hilarious! Any movie that can make me laugh so hard I snort, and has my son in stitches, laughing so hard that no sound actually comes out, is a great family night movie in my book. The whole cast was great – from the two leads to Seth Green as their karaoke-loving assistant, Matt Dillon as an ultra-macho scout leader, and Rita Wilson as a cross-eyed hand model. This may not have had the most original plot, but it had lots of great comedy moments.

Old Dogs will be available on DVD tomorrow, March 9th. The DVD special features include blooper, deleted scenes, and more.

  1. Glad to see you enjoyed this one – the trailers looked silly, but sometimes that means the movie’s fun.

  3. Comedy movies are hit and miss with me (mostly misses) and so I tend to be very leery of most of them these days. I might give this one a try just based on your say so though. I do love Seth Green.

      Wendy – I wasn’t all thrilled to see this one, but my parents told me it was hysterical, so I gave it a try. It was worth it!

    Critics are so predictable–they probably took one look at the post and said, “Nope!”

      Tasha – yeah – I don’t mind my comedies silly and predictable – as long as they’re funny!
