Un très bon film familial, de l'humour, de la tendresse et un peu de Minus et Cortex dans ce petit chef d'oeuvre... rien de vraiment à rajouter, ce film m'a comblé et a vraiment ravi mon petit bonhomme, que demander de plus ?

En chacun d'entre nous sommeil un héros, certain se réveilleront un jour, d'autre que de temps à autre et la plupart sommeilleront par crainte de ce que les autres pourraient penser de nous... mais ce qui compte je crois c'est ce que nous, nous pensons de nous même n'est ce pas ?

Certes ceux qui n'aime pas les films familiaux, les super héros et non pas un once de coeur d'enfant risque de ne pas aimer ce film comme bien des critiques... mais bon chacun ces goût, moi pour ma part je n'aime pas certain style de film et je ne les regarde pas tout simplement... si vous avez encore une âme que l'on peut émerveiller grâce à un peu de magie et de charme ce film est sans l'ombre d'un doute à voir !

Furry Family Fun Nov. 22 2007
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I first heard that Disney was going to be putting out a live action version of "Underdog," I cringed at the thought. How could one make a live action film based on a cartoon who's key character was A) a dog, B) interacted freely with humans and other animals and C) was definitely a product of its times? Sure, the "Scooby-Doo" films have been out for awhile, but Scooby (and his cousins) were the only animals that interacted with anyone and their update was a fair success. Although Disney's answer wasn't 100% perfect, it was definitely a good response.

What the writers did was simplify the original tale somewhat. Instead of having Underdog interact with humans by being a shoeshine boy, he became an out-of-luck former police dog who's picked up by the caring-but-tense family of James Belushi and Alex Neuberger. They name him "Shoeshine." They also made the rest of the animals, namely Polly and Riff-Raff, only interact with Underdog and not the humans. Lastly, they firmly planted this film in 2007 by updating the lingo, the music, and the science that created Underdog.

Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage) and Cad (Patrick Warburton) are along for the ride and just like in the old TV show, they are Underdog's primary adversaries. Jason Lee provides the voice of the super pup, and gives him a refreshing update that I'm sure will tick off fans of the original cartoon.

The story, as mentioned earlier, is based around a not-so-hot police dog who's literally laughed off of the force by his comrades. He's picked up by Barsinister and Cad and becomes Underdog through a lab accident. He escapes from Barsinister and is picked up by another has-been cop, James Belushi. He's taken in by Belushi and his son and begins to form a strong bond with the boy. The rest of the story centers around Barsinister trying to capture Underdog to use his powers to take over the city and, eventually, the world. Along the way Shoeshine/Underdog falls for Polly, his new family gets closer, and he struggles with a catchphrase.

Sure, the story is simplistic and entirely unbelievable, but this is still a very good film to take your children to. I don't recall any harsh language but there is a little bit of violence and some puppy peril. At one point a particular pup gets into a deadly situation that might scare very young children. Just know that all turns out well in the end and I promise that your kids will be smiling before the movie is over.

This isn't a great film, but it is a very good family flick. The cast do an excellent job with what they have to work with and the special effects are of a similar (but slightly better) grade as those in other recent live-action flicks that involve CGI characters. I'm especially fond of Underdog's take-offs when he heads to the air.

Fans of the original series will probably cry foul over what has happened to their beloved Underdog. They do have a legitimate gripe but this film wasn't made to recall a ton of memories. It was made to draw in a modern crowd of youngsters and their families (some of which may not have even heard of the original show). The bottomline is this: It's a good family show that is enjoyable for both kids and their parents. Haggle over the changes if you must, but in the end, Disney has a winner with "Underdog."

The First Canine Rapper, Underdog, LIVE-ACTION! April 10 2008
By Benjamin J Burgraff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Back in the sixties, that long-ago age,
An animated super-mutt was truly the rage!
Voiced by Wally Cox, the lovable geek,
The dog always rhymed, whenever he'd speak.

Underdog was the Mighty Mouse of his time,
Saving the city and always in rhyme!
And while some may feel a 'live' update is trivial,
I find this new movie entirely convivial!

Frederik Du Chau directs with a wink,
And the result isn't as silly as many might think!
Jason Lee's voice, while not as nerdy as Cox's,
Is warm and beagle-friendly, whenever he talks!

The animals, not humans, are the stars of this flick,
Although Peter Dinklage's Barsinister is a real kick!
At 4'5", he's teamed with 6'3" Patrick Warburton,
And they steal every scene until the final curtain!

I loved the references to "Superman, the Movie",
And as a sixties kid, I found everything groovy!
Of course, since it's Disney, it carries his stamp,
With a romantic send-up of "Lady and the Tramp".

So Mom and Dad, make your little ones happy,
Buy this doggy gem, and make it snappy!
It's family-friendly, so there's no need to fear,
They'll thank you and exclaim, "Underdog is HERE!"

wonderful Nov. 8 2007
By Dearest Be - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My 6 year-old loved this movie, and frankly, so did I. It is a straight forward, good-clean-fun movie. When I walk through the local movie rental chain, I am disappointed at the gore and darkness that people consider entertainment. If you want something lighthearted and enjoyable for the whole family, you can't go wrong with this one.

UNDERDOG is back! Dec 18 2007
By Game Ace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
At least for me he's back. As a kid growing up in the sixties I loved watching the "UNDERDOG SHOW"! Underdog was not the most graceful superhero (blowing up telephone booths, accidentally crashing through walls and destroying buildings left and right),but he was a true hero through and through. His catch theme "there's no need to fear underdog is here" very popular back then(Underdog always talkled in rhyme). and he was loved by many(myself included). I also always loved the Underdog theme which included the lyrics"a cry goes out from far and near for Underdog"! So when I first learned that Disney is making a live action version of the show I decided to hold judgement until I saw it. Past movies made from books or tv shows didn't fair to well (A Wrinkle in Time could have done much better if it was truer to the book). But, the preview of the movie looked promising. So I decided to just buy the movie rather than renting. I was not disappointed! The movie was great! It was very true to the original tv series(of coures some changes had to be made), but none-the-less it was a great movie. Fun for all ages 6 to 106! Those who choose to talk down the movie are just to rigid! I should know, I grew-up watching Underdog back in the sixties. True everyone has their own taste, but, I can't imagine anyone who loved Underdog not liking this movie, it's just good clean fun!!!(Maybe that's why some people don't like it, no bad language, no sex, no adult themes and no real violence.)Oh well you can't please everybody. But, you can please a lot of kids, parents and fans!

He's like Superman only with a flea collar Jan. 13 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
He's a forlorn beagle, a failed police dog when he's caught up by Cad (Patrick Warburton). He thinks he's gone to the pound, but it's worse. Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage) is a certified Evil Genius and he's going to be experimenting on the dogs to create genetic mutations.

Being the new dog on the block, the beagle is set to get tonight's shot. He panics and ends up with more than he'd bargained for.

He manages to escape the lab and is taken in by Dan Unger, (James Belushi) an ex-cop who's dealing with the loss of his wife and the alienation of his son Jack (Alex Neuberger).

Jack isn't interested at first, but then the dog starts to talk. From there, the pair bond and build a relationship based on helping others.

"Underdog" is a cute film and while I could say it's for 'kids of all ages', it's a very young film. The special effects were entertaining--how did they make the beagle look so much like he's talking? And it's always good to see James Belushi.

Probably my favorite part of the film was the first "Underdog" cartoon. They may imitate, but they will never duplicate the real Underdog!
