The Dog Who Saved Summer - DVD Review and Giveaway

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 

A paws-itively delightful treat for the whole family, The Dog Who Saved Summer arrives on DVD and On Demand June 2 and is available in Digital HD now from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Mario Lopez (“Extra” host, “Saved by the Bell”), Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”), Gary Valentine (“The King of Queens,” Paul Blart: Mall Cop 1 and 2, Jack & Jill), Elisa Donovan (Clueless, “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”), Patrick Muldoon (Starship Troopers) and Joey “Coco” Diaz (The Longest Yard) reprise their roles in the sixth installment of the popular franchise and are joined once again by director Sean Robert Olson and screenwriters Michael Ciminera and Richard Gnolfo. The hilarious fun-in-the-sun comedy also stars Martin Kove (“Cagney & Lacey,” The Karate Kid), Francesca Capaldi (“Dog with a Blog”), Cole Jensen (“Crash & Bernstein”) and the voice of William Zabka (The Karate Kid).

Synopsis: 

 When former police K-9 Zeus (voiced by Lopez) accidentally destroys an important party, the Bannister family decides it’s time to send him to obedience school. Classes start off on the wrong paw when the no-nonsense instructor Vernon (Kove) and his Marine K-9 assistant Apollo (voiced by Zabka) fail Zeus on every lesson. Fearing the pound may be his next stop, Zeus and the Bannister children (Capaldi and Jensen) enlist help from a janitor who teaches them his unique training methods that could help Zeus win “Top Dog” at the school’s showcase. Meanwhile, a familiar trio of bumbling burglars (Cain, Muldoon and Diaz) is planning a daring diamond heist. Zeus must outsmart the thieves, as well as his hard-nosed instructor, in order to win the big tournament and foil the jewelry robbery before it’s too late.

My Review:
 
Cute, cute, cute! I found this The Dog Who Saved Summer to be a fun movie to watch with the whole family.  An adorable dog whose voice is narrated by Mario Lopez, lots of energy and antics, and slapstick comedy kept us captivated while watching this film.

The story tells of a dog named Zeus who is sent to obedience school.  He doesn't fare so well there.  A janitor helps Zeus set his skills straight so he can be a worthy dog.  Zeus is also caught in the middle of a planned jewel robbery and, in the end, shows his family he's worth keeping. 

The film is predictable and some of the scenes are campy but, overall, The Dog Who Saved Summer is an enjoyable film that kids will probably get a kick out of. Viewers will root for Zeus, and the heartfelt theme that family bonds matter will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.

Win It!

One person will win The Dog Who Saved Summer on DVD.

I love Pugs. They are so cute. Rottweilers, Great Danes, and Pit Bulls are awesome too. I know that Rottweilers and Pit Bulls get a bad rap though.
