The Dog Who Saved Summer online movie review - 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!
