Growing up I loved it.
2 May 2007 | by i_am_not_a_dollSee all my reviews

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?
