Lukewarm family experience...
3 March 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I was expecting more laughs from this movie. Although I sat down and watched it without ever having heard about it prior to picking it up. I had expected a bit more from it, though.

Not even Chris Parnell could raise this movie up from what it was. Most of the cast was decent enough, actually, including Chris Parnell. However, I didn't care for Dax Ravina (playing Vinny) and Tony Nappo (playing Joey), they overacted their stereotypical characters in a very bad way, bordering on where it was physically painful to watch. I am sure they are both good actors in their own rights, but their characters in this movie was too much!

The story would be really nice for a 6 to 10 year old to watch, and perhaps as a family unit, but don't sit down and watch this movie without children, it is just not that funny. I watched it with my 1 year old, but of course he is too young to understand what's going on, but he seemed to like watching the dog on the screen.

The story told in "The Dogfather" is pretty straight forward, and very, very simple. Don Tanzio loses his family heirloom ring when the dog Sonny eats a meatball from his hand. The dog runs away and then becomes adopted by a new family. And of course, Don Tanzio's goons are out looking for the dog and the ring, and this is where the awkward situations arise for everyone.

For a family entertainment movie, "The Dogfather" is not a really good choice, because there are lots of other really nice and funny movies available on the market. The movie had potential, but it didn't fully deliver.
