Joey Lawrence Stars in SK8 DAWG Coming to Digital and DVD on Dec. 11th - Review and #Giveaway (2 winners)

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

In additional to our nightly holiday movie selection, we watched SK8 Dawg last night, and the whole family loved it.  Usually I wait until Fridays to watch a movie with the girls, but as soon as my oldest daughter saw this movie arrive in the mail yesterday, she couldn't wait to watch it.  If you follow my blog, then you know that my girls, especially my oldest is a huge dog and cat lover.  She can't go a day without wearing some type of clothing that has a dog or cat on it.  And, usually when it is her time to choose a movie for our weekly movie night, the movie has to have these or other animals in it.

My girls had never heard of this movie before seeing it arrive at our door yesterday.  All they could tell from the cover art was that it was about a dog riding a skateboard.  That alone caught their attention and they wanted to see him riding the skateboard around.  I was quick to pick up that this was a Dove Approved movie, so I knew it would be perfect for every member of the family and appropriate content wise for my girls.

As we settled in to watch the movie, my girls' eyes were glued to the screen.  I watched them giggle and smile all throughout the movie, as they rooted for Tommy to win the skate competition.  This movie included a bully, named Frankie, who Tommy was hoping to beat at the skate off.  My girls hate seeing other kids get picked on, and really wanted Tommy to win, to show the bully up, and also so that Tommy gained more self esteem and confidence.  So, does Tommy win the skate-off challenge?  You will just have to pick up this movie, when it arrives on DVD on Dec. 11th.  What I will say, though, is that this a great movie for the whole family, especially those who have kids who love to skateboard.  My girls can't wait to watch this movie again, and I am looking forward to it, too.  The story is sweet, and Tommy's dog, Buddy, will warm your heart, and wish you had a dog who could skateboard. :-)

More about this movie:

"Everyone in Tommy’s life — his sister, his dad, his neighbor, even his dog — is an awesome skateboarder. Everyone except Tommy himself! Sick of getting teased for being a klutz, Tommy accepts a skate-off challenge from the local bully, Frankie. Can his friend Alice and his pooch, Buddy (voiced by David Arquette, Scream franchise), teach Tommy to flip, ollie, grab, and slide in time for the big showdown? This fun, skate-crazy family flick also stars Joey Lawrence (TV’s “Melissa & Joey”)."

  1. I would love to win this movie for my nephew. It looks like a movie that he would like. He likes movies with animals. Bernie Wallace BWallace1980(at)hotmail(d0t)com
