THE DOG WHO SAVED SUMMER -- Available on DVD & On Demand June 2 (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.


With summer fast approaching, families are looking to spend more time together.  And, what better way than to pop some popcorn and settle in on the couch to watch a fun family-friendly movie?

Recently, I was sent a review copy of the upcoming release, "The Dog Who Saved Summer," which arrives on DVD and On Demand on June 2nd.  Just seeing the front cover of the DVD with just the cutest dog holding a Frisbee on the beach, I knew my girls, who love dogs, especially big ones, would go crazy for this movie...and, they did.  As soon as they saw me put the DVD on the TV stand to watch later, they were quick to pick up and start talking about.  I told them they would have to wait until the weekend to watch it, but it was only Wednesday and I knew they, and I, wouldn't be able to hold off until then.

I told the girls that if they napped Thursday AM, that when they woke up we would watch the movie.  Out of the whole week, this was the only day they napped -- go figure.  When you start watching this movie you find yourself loving the cast which includes Dean Cain, Gary Valentine, Elisa Donovan, Patrick Muldoon and even Mario Lopez, who voices the K-9 Zeus.

The movie itself, which is rated PG, has a run time of over 89 minutes, making it perfect for even the youngest of viewers to sit and enjoy with getting antsy.  My three year old, Bella, couldn't get enough of this movie, and asked to watch it again, as the credits started to roll.

While many dog movies are cheesy, I have to say that this was really a fun and one even my husband and I enjoyed watching.  It moved along well, and kept everyone engaged and entertained.  And, if you are a dog lover like my family is, you'll love this movie.

Here is more about this upcoming family-friendly movie from Anchor Bay Entertainment...

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.
