Did You Know?


Chevy Chase agreed to do the movie, in a drug fueled haze. In fact, most of his voice acting was done while high/under the influence. All of his lines in the movie, are actually the only words the editors could understand. See more »

Karate Dog
21 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I for one really liked Karate Dog it had a good plot and story line... The acting wasn't top notch, it had somewhat known actors like Simon Rex(think Scary Movie) and Ron Lester( BillyBob -Varsity Blues)along side popular actors like Chevy Chase, Pat Morita, Jon Voight, Jaime Presley, & Lori Petti, remember Colar the computer with a voice? Yep that was her! (also known as Kit Keller in A League of Their Own). But it was still a very good family movie. Kids will surely love it, along with their moms and dads.

The whole Matrix movie thing is a little warn out though, especially the whole part with the dog bending over backwards & slow motion with flying specs, it is used way too much in movies now, along with John Voight standing on top of the Cage sign on top of the building yelling he's on top of the world with outstretched arms like he is in the Titanic movie, which is also used way too much in movies, but still as far as the entire film goes it was very funny, it cheered me up unlike most of today's movies. I for one didn't think it was total crap. Just maybe it lacked in some parts...

Thanks for reading my comment.
