Storyline

RUSSELL MADNESS tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his pet store, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather's pro wrestling arena. That's when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar. But when a dishonest promoter double-crosses the Ferraros, Russell will face his biggest challenge and discover that the strongest tag team is family.

Trivia

The filmmakers reuse roughly 4-6 different shots of the monkey character throughout the film, such as when the monkey raises his arm. To save money, these shots were slowed down, sped up, and also recut in order to make it seem like Hunk was doing more things than he actually was. See more »

Terrible like Monkey up and Pup Star
23 August 2020 | by kdumersSee all my reviews

What kind of filming education did Robert Vince get when he went to film school? This film's CGI is what makes it unworthy of being good entertainment as well as possibly some pointless humor!!!
