Poor characters but funny nonetheless
20 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's springtime and a dog is alone in the park watching two birds gettin' it on in the time-honoured fashion. He decides he wants love too and goes on the look. Rejected in the park, he mistakes a statue for a real dog and makes advances. However, the guard dog of the garden is a vicious bulldog that is determined to protect the statue.

When a Warner Brothers cartoon comes on with no recognisable stars it is often a time to start to worry - but not always. Here the film doesn't bode well when the dog marks himself out as a goofy clone with his voice and mannerisms, but it turns into a quite sassy little cartoon with a traditional `big bulldog' plot. It has plenty of nice little touches that make familiar jokes feel just a little bit fresher and funnier and it is surprisingly light on it's feet and funny. The whole love thing is a bit of a downer at times but the central bulldog thing is good.

As I said, the characters aren't up to much. The bulldog looks like the bulldog from all the cartoons but he neither sounds or acts as convincingly as others. The main dog is slightly annoying because he is just like a poor man's Goofy; happily his material is good enough to get over that. The support cast has a few little characters that speak in mock `Nu Yark' accents and are funny.

Overall, this has the usual weakness of having second fiddle characters to deliver it but luckily the material is pretty enjoyable. The bookends on the plot about love are average but the central stuff with the bulldog features sturdy jokes with clever touches to make it fresher than it probably deserved to be.
