Rover, a street-smart dog owned by a Las Vegas showgirl is dumped off Hoover Dam by the showgirl's boyfriend. Rather than drowning, Rover winds up in your basic idyllic farm in a classic city-boy-in-country shtick.Written by

When Rover sees the roses that he gives Connie as her birthday present, you can see directly behind him on the wall a picture of Rodney Dangerfield under the words: Appearing Now. Rodney Dangerfield is the voice of Rover, and he wrote the story for the movie. See more »
When this movie came out - I was it's target audience - a child.
And I loved this movie.
Rover Dangerfield, is a great movie for kids - better than half the crap, that parents are letting their kids watch, which is far too mature for them.
This movie is filled with enough seriousness, that kids don't feel like they're being talked down to - and enough adult appeal, that even my father used to always sit down with us to watch it.
The humour is great, the characters charming - particularly Rodney Dangerfield, as Rover - what I think people are forgetting it - it doesn't have to be perfect by your standards - unless you watched it as a kid at the time of it's release and were actually a child of that time - just let your kids watch it, and ask what they think...
You probably watch what they think is crap, so who are you to be a judge?
