A new Lassie to hit the shelves?
2 January 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is definitely intended for the children and young audience. I am sure that children of all ages will love the dog in the movie. To me, it seemed like a 2010 version to reinvent "Lassie", just with a new name and a new breed of dog.

The story is fairly easy to follow, though I found it to be over the top in the level of sassy and stupidity. But of course, I looked at it with adult eyes, not the eyes of a child. For children, I am sure that the things that happen in the movie will be fun, and that the children will totally buy into all the things that this dog apparently is capable of doing.

Everything in this movie was so stereotypical. You have a small town family moving to the big city (New York, in this case), and of course life in small towns is apparently all idyllic and cozy, while life in the big city is stressful, lacking color and luster, and just a constant buzz of activity. Then you have the wicked stepmother. And Christa Campbell was doing such a horrible work portraying that role. Normally she is alright in movies, but this? Wow... Anyway, moving on, the small town boy is being bullied by the kids in the new school, again something stereotypical. And the landlords of their building, wow, that was an insult to landlords, New Yorkers and people everywhere. The stereotypical lists doesn't end here, but I will cut it short.

The dog was actually lovable and it had been trained well, because it performed well in the movie and the many various scenes it was doing.

For families with children and for kids of all ages, the movie "Cool Dog" would be worth sitting down together and watch, because it is a heartwarming story and a likable one at that. But as an adult, this movie was just too far out there. I remember watching "Lassie" when I was a kid, so I think "Cool Dog" is a good attempt at bringing the spirit of "Lassie" back in the way of an up-to-date story and have a new dog star as the 'hero'.
