Fatherless Bodi Grogan dreams of his own puppy, but the best he can get from his workaholic ma Carol is minding friends' naughty pup Marley while he's dumped for the summer with grandpa Fred, a rather strict US Marines veteran. If they do really well a permanent dog is on the cards, so Brdoy resolves to j-enter the local puppy obedience show, which only allows teams, so he recruits Fred's friendly neighbor Crouch's sibling pups Moose and Fuchsia. They're up against ruthless title defender Hans Von Weiselberger, whose henchman help him cheat and terrorize their own Dobermann pups, but grandpa's military experience comes in handy once he sides with team Bodi.

Terrible Movie - Do not rent
30 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

We turned this movie off after watching it for about 3 minutes. I even called Redbox and got a refund on the movie - which I have never done before.

It starts off really weird with characters that were not even in the previous movie. Marley is being watched by this neighbor boy and his mom thinks he "her son" is a screw up. Their acting was terrible.

Once Marley started "talking" - we turned the movie off. Marley is played by a real dog but his mouth is animated. It looked really cheesy. If Marley's mouth won't have been animated, we would have probably watched it of another 3 minutes or so.

This movie is meant for kids ages 4-8.
