Laugh Til Your Side Hurts!
7 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do you like to laugh and laugh until your side hurts? I do, and that why I like the film The Dogfather. The story is about a bulldog named Sonny that is a rich man's pet. The rich man is a gangster Boss. The men in the gang have to call him "Godfather" and they have to call Sonny "Dogfather." When the Godfather feeds Sonny a meatball from his hand, Sonny accidentally eats the ruby ring off the Godfather's finger along with the meatball. When the Godfather sees the ring is gone, he thinks Sonny has turned against him. Sonny gets scared and runs. The Godfather tells two of his men, "Get Sonny and my ring back dead or alive." And the chase for Sonny is on! Sonny gets hauled off to the pound, where a boy with a heart problem wants to adopt him. The pound has a lot of cute fluffy little dogs, but the boy wants the big drooling bulldog. The boy really loves Sonny and his mother loves him too, but the boy's father can't seem to get along with him.

My favorite character in Dogfather is the bulldog Sonny. He's a great comedian. He plays goofy jokes on people. The funniest part is when Sonny leaves a surprise in his new owner's shoe. When the father takes Sonny for a walk, Sonny pulls so hard, it's actually the dog walking the man.

Things get super silly when the father tries playing his own tricks. He builds a doghouse for Sonny that looks like a prison. But Sonny ends up sleeping in the father's bed and guess where the father sleeps? The Italian gangsters chasing Sonny talk with Italian accents and they're not too smart but really funny, even though they're bad guys. They walk around so cool except they are afraid of a tiny puppy. It's silly. Who would be afraid of a puppy? The Dogfather soundtrack helps make a happy and exciting mood. I found myself smiling and laughing during the whole movie. It's just plain ridiculous and I love a movie that lets me feel like that.

I recommend this film for kids of all ages. I think parents and kids would enjoy watching it together, as long as the grownups don't mind a few poop jokes. Will the two Italian gangsters catch Sonny? Where is the Godfather's ring? Will the father let the little boy keep Sonny the slobbery bulldog as his pet? If you're ready for some good laughs and a brilliant story, get this movie on DVD today!
