News & Interviews for Underdog
Critic Reviews for Underdog
Underdog works best when spoofing superhero conventions, but the film goes to the dogs thanks to a drab story and frequent stabs at heartwarming bromides.
At just over 80 minutes it feels not so much like a proper film as a piece of extended filler for slow afternoons on Disney's TV channels.
Despite the talent on show, there's little to distinguish this from any other bland family comedy.
The elements of the film don't quite mesh: The villains are cartoony, but [director] Du Chau aims for soggy family drama in his father-son story.
The endearing airborne-beagle effects help to offset the formula twists.
Audience Reviews for Underdog
its not one of the best films ive seen but its entertaining and stays faithful to the original show somewhat. Jason Lee does a good job as Underdog, but the other actors aren't very good or as entertaining except for Patrick Warburton as the dumb right hand man to Simon Bart Sinister, its such a stupid character but the jokes are so forced with this character that it is funny. I'll say it is definitely not a good film for the regular male adult or teenage demographic, but if you have a little girl, its okay.
Unfortunately, I was forced to watch this movie with 6 year olds. I found the plot boring and uninteresting. I day-dreamed throughout the entire movie. The dog was cute, but the film really didn't impress me.
It had a few adorable little addition to it's ridiculous story when it first started out, but it was brought down by it's childish slapstick humor and cheesy effects.
