Great Family Fair
22 January 2011 | by jamesgabelSee all my reviews

Watched this tonight as our Saturday family movie on PPV, we made a great choice! This is how a family film should be, Hollywood take note. Most if your so called "family films" are not fit for family consumption. The Dogfather gets it right! This film was both funny and presented a number of positive family messages that my wife and I appreciated. Chris Parnell is very good as the dad. And the guy who plays the mafia boss is perfect! He looks and sounds like Marlon Brando from The Godfather, geez what a find he was! The bulldog is quite hilarious in this movie, a very funny breed indeed. We are dog lovers at our house so we appreciated that. The plot and story line for this movie is excellent and the cinematography is gorgeous, I loved all the bright vibrant colors. My kids laughed at many of the parts and where thoroughly entertained for the entire duration of the movie. I found some of the jokes aimed at adults to be quite funny as well. My wife wants to get this movie on DVD so we can have the kids watch it in the car. Parents, if you want a "safe" movie that will keep the kids occupied for 90 minutes, this is the one!
