Fun Family Romp that is more than just a talking dog movie
12 April 2014 | by harpm1See all my reviews

What do you do when you've saved Christmas (twice) and Halloween? Save Easter of course. This is a raucous family film with animal antics, bumbling crooks, and a touch of romance.

The Dog Who Saved Easter takes the Zeus (Mario Lopez)o n a whole new adventure and season. With both old and new characters you can jump right into the movie without having seen the previous chapters. Both the canine and human characters get a little romance while dodging the crooks who are about to turn Easter into a rotten egg. Dean Cain, Joey Diaz, and Patrick Muldoon are the most bumbling crooks since the Wet Bandits and in clever irony Diaz's Stewey eats more floor droppings than any of the canine cast. Catherine Hicks as Cressida (channeling her inner Cruella de Vil) heads the cast of villains as the mean, mastermind attempting to ruin the day, but she didn't count on Zeus, a big, huge mistake. But it's not just about the dogs, Beverley Mitchell as Alice not only struggles to keep her fledgling business afloat but also her love life.

The over-the-top physical comedy, sight gags, and of course the cuddly heroes make The Dog Who Saved Easter a welcome addition to your holiday and family film collection. Both our daughter (7) and son (10) were captivated and laughing throughout the story, especially at the poop jokes, and you can't have a dog comedy without poop jokes.
