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 »

My Grandma's Kind Of Movie.
12 July 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

My Grandma/guardian loves dog movie-mainly those you get at Walmart for $5 or at a garage sale because no one else gives a care. Except her. This movie, which is basically a kid's Rocky, was cute and not bad. It's not a movie I would re watch by myself but it was fine. The main pull back would be the fact that the dog pees over everyone. I do not like those kind of jokes thanks to this movie.It didn't bother me in The Long Haul, but here-why? If dog movies are for you, it should be fine. Otherwise, you can get a movie like The Breakfast Club for the same price at Walmart-that's a better buy.
