The second animated film where Eddie Izzard co-stars with a Wilson brother. The first was Cars 2 (2011) where Izzard voiced Miles Axlerod and Owen Wilson voiced Lightning McQueen. See more »

Oh, hey, Darma.
Are you okay?
Yeah, yeah. I've just been, uh, hanging out with Mr. Scattergood.
Whoa, whoa! Sorry. Back up. You've been hanging with rock legend, Angus Scattergood?
Right on. Hanging with Angus.
He was not hanging.
Hangus with Angus!

The movie's main title is shown at the end. It came from the Bodi's power of the guitar at the "Glorious" finale concert sequence. See more »

This movie was given no promotion whatsoever in Australia and so I watched this with my children (14 and 11) with no expectations.
While the movie didn't break any new ground, it was entertaining, family-friendly and quite fun overall. The kids enjoyed it and there was enough humour to keep the parents happy too. When I came online to recommend it, I was quite shocked to see the low ratings and critical reviews - although the financial flop explains why it never made it to cinemas or even rated a mention locally.
Rock Dog isn't brilliant - this isn't 'Kubo' or a Pixar classic. But it's fun, family entertainment and for that audience, it's definitely worth a watch.
