You've got to be kidding. Bad acting. Horrible costumes. Awkward script. Special effects are so stupid. The dog was obviously on Valium. The entire movie has as much personality as a clam. I watched it to the end just in case there was something redeeming about it. I usually love movies about dogs. This one is the exception. My review has to be ten lines long. Why should I waste your time and Internet bandwidth on something this dumb. I don't want to insult other viewers who liked the film, but I do wonder about their level of, shall we say, sophistication. Perhaps this film originated as a project for fifth grade students. I paid $4.99 to rent it on Comcast. That is a rip! Don't waste your time.
I rented this from Redbox.
The picture displayed was different then the one here.
It showed three dogs at a DJ booth at the beach wearing hip-hop attire.
This was never in the film.
The movie was so bad, none of my kids would watch it.
I watched it all the way through.
It was extremely low budget and the film seemed to center around adults acting inappropriately.
I think the reviewer who compared it to John Waters is correct.
It was just horrible, awful, tacky and lame.

This was an unexpected wonder. The movie started fast and kept up a
wonderful pace for the kids. They laughed and clapped throughout and as
soon as it was over they wanted to see it again. I could not believe
how happy they were about it and the excitement was continual.
The characters were fresh, and when the dog, Pijo, was told to play sick everyone found it hysterical. Cassie has a winning personality that provides a feeling of continual fun and excitement throughout the film.
The editing of the movie was first rate as the pace was continually exciting and kept everyone's interest. The background music kept the flow and mood going, and the sound was perfect throughout.
Overall, a fun, easy to enjoy, and feel good movie that kids of all ages will enjoy.
Judging from the title and cover when I picked this up for my friend, I was expecting the story to be about a rapping boxer who makes it big with his mad turntable skillz. What I got was a trashy feel good movie, that held no appeal to the African American audience it would be happy to embrace. Doggie B could have been the next big thing - a watershed film about the struggles that dogs have to become rappers. Instead, it's about some girl whose mom is a stereotypical asshole fighting against an oppressive hyper-cat lady to secure her uncles dog dancing ring. I wanted to see Doggie B go into the dark underground Dog Fighting scene. I wanted to see Doggie B battle to get a record deal. Instead, what I got was a movie that shames me more then it does excite me. 'Doggie B' gets a 2/10 from this unhappy film viewer.
This morning I had the opportunity to view the movie "Doggie Boogie" at
the Sonoma International Film Festival in CA. I have now seen it twice
and can't get enough. Very uplifting in a day and age where we need
more positive joy. I will definitely purchase the movie once it is
available to the public. This movie is an incredibly joyous escape. I
was captivated by the story from the minute it started through the
credits. This was actually the second time I have seen it and was
surprised that it still had that "captivating effect" despite knowing
the outcome of the plot.
The characters' charisma takes the story line to a very personal level for everyone in the audience. Very well cast! I recommend this movie for all ages of people who share or have shared their life with a canine family member.
This movie is a delightful, fun watch. I laughed, and felt good after seeing it. Loved seeing the audience happy and clapping at the end. The heroine is cute, Pijo, the dog, is adorable, and all the characters are fun to watch. Loved the brightly colored clothes, and dog touches to the movie. I noticed everything was canine related - down to the bone mats on the floor during the yoga scene. I understand that this movie was completely filmed in San Francisco, and used only SAG actors and actresses. And the film was entirely written and directed by the same person. Fun, fun, fun. Do not miss this movie, especially if you have kids - they will love it. It is a pleasure to see something lighthearted and family oriented.
I saw the preview and I loved it. The dogs are adorable, the acting is superb, and the sets & color were fun and whimsical. The dog dancing scenes make it especially unique from any movie I've ever scene. I enjoyed the story line, the lessons and the laughs. It's rare that I like a movie that can also be enjoyed by children, but this movie was a surprising exception of that for me. The attention to detail on the costumes and sets was particularly impressive. I heard many people commenting on the way out of the theater that they were impressed with the sets, which is not something I've heard before. Even the dog costumes we coordinated, fitted and fun. I look forward to seeing it again!

Do you remember seeing Wizard of Oz for the first time? That's kind of
what I felt like when I watched Doggie Boogie movie. I went to a
private showing and it was mesmerizing for my 5 year old girl and my 9
year old boy. I mean mesmerized. Of course, knowing they are transfixed
means I have time, real time, to do something else. But they were into
it and I shared it with them and had fun. I was pretty engaged until
the end too, though they wanted to watch it again right away.
The color is vibrant, as vibrant as any I've seen, kind of like Willy Wonka, I wasn't expecting that. It was 'fantastical' and made me laugh on more than one occasion. My 5 year old had her mouth wide open most of the time and my boy was laughing a lot. I love it when we can share an experience like that because they will remember it. I will too. It was the many colors, and the music, or just the happy mood. The car ride home was fun talking. GOOD job!!
Doggie B throws a big bone to the Wizard of Oz. My daughter absolutely loved this movie. Take your kid for sure but lots of adults in the audience were really into it and they didn't all have children with them. A great must see family film with San Francisco as a very creative stand- in for the Emerald City. Best tribute to the Wizard of Oz yet. Certainly the first Wizard of Oz for dogs, Toto would be proud. Can understand why it won the audience favorite award out of 70 features at Sonoma and now it is playing at Landmark Opera Plaza here in San Francisco. It will be a cult classic as well as a beloved children's movie all in one, a first. Romanus is a master of cheese, camp and family fun so hope he makes more as I never imagined a G-rated John Waters in the making. Unthinkable!
Great imaginative fanciful film. About coming into ones own with the help of man's best friends (Dogs). The dog dancing contest was a riot. The Doggie Yoga Shangrrrla with it's dogs and staff were a scream . The movie displays the parallel world of spiritual healers , dog dancers, with a witch like evil doing antagonist. The back drop of San Francisco , real quirky costumes, outlandish hair-dos, inventive props helps set it off well. An amusing and delightful wayout script and characters to entertain all moviegoers.Very funny uplifting with lots of heart. It has some lessons for all ages. I think the whole family will enjoy the film.
