Disney’s Old Dogs Review

Our family loves good comedies.  Seeing this movie was an added bonus.  This was one movie that will make everyone laugh.  The movie was just as funny as we expected, and this is a movie that we will definitelly watch again, and again.  My wife, and our little one laughed through most of it.  Of course I laughed because a lot of it could be true, but yet seeing it on video makes it funny.  John Travolta, and Robin Williams did a great job in this movie.  This movie gets a solid 10.

Disney’s OLD DOGS

A Must Own Disney Blu-ray™ Combo Pack Available March 9, 2010

“One of the best family films of the year” – Sandie Newton, CBS-Dallas

Burbank, Calif.,

January 29, 2010 – Playing Dad is harder than it looks for two best friends who suddenly find themselves caring for seven-year-old twins in Old Dogs, the knockout family comedy, coming to Disney Blu-ray, DVD, and Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy Combo Pack on March 9, 2010 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Starring Academy Award® winner Robin Williams, (Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Good Will Hunting, 1997) and John Travolta (Wild Hogs), Old Dogs is a fresh and funny Disney treat that Pete Hammond of Boxoffice Magazine calls “Hilarious! Fun for the whole family.” With bonus features including laugh-out-loud boopers, exclusive music videos, behind-the-scenes peeks and a digital copy of the film, the Old Dogs Combo Pack will have audiences howling with laughter!

Kelly Preston (Jerry McGuire), Conner Rayburn (The Invention of Lying), Seth Green (Can’t Hardly Wait), Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary) and, in her screen debut, Ella Bleu Travolta (real life daughter of Travolta and Preston) deliver champion comic performances in a movie that combines unforgettable physical humor, off-the-wall escapades and heartfelt emotion.

A Collection of Hilarious Deleted Scenes and Bloopers

– Audio Commentary by the film’s director Walt Becker, producer Andrew Panay, and writers David Diamond and David Weissman

Dan (Robin Williams) and his best friend and business partner Charlie (John Travolta) are on the verge of the biggest deal in the history of their sports marketing firm when their lives are turned upside down by a surprise visit from Dan’s ex-wife Vicki (Kelly Preston). Vicki has big news for Dan—their ever-so-brief liaison produced twins Zach (Conner Rayburn) and Emily (Ella Bleu Travolta), now seven-years-old and in need of a dad to keep an eye on them for two weeks. With only high-living playboy Charlie for support, Dan’s bumbling attempts at “on the job training” in fatherhood result in a series of disastrously funny exploits that lead him to a new understanding of what really matters in life. Featuring an extraordinary cast of comedy purebreds including Seth Green, Matt Dillon and Lori Loughlin, Old Dogs will have audiences rolling over and begging for more.
