A very funny movie
28 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very simple plot that even young children can follow. This film breaks the rule for many actors in not working with young kids or animals. My family and I really enjoyed it. If you are looking for something deep and meaningful then look elsewhere but if you want slapstick then this is for you. There is a very funny scene involving Spot's output and the catastrophe's that happen to the kid's mum (the gorgeous Leslie Bibb) who is also the love object for David Arquette, are very amusing. I think that the actors in this film must have enjoyed playing their parts and didn't take themselves too seriously. Overall this is not a demanding movie but just some good light-hearted fun and you will be crying with laughter.
