A friend of mine and I saw this movie and laughed!
C. Norris
Typical inept villains - a stupid, mean one who thinks he's not stupid and an even stupider, dopey one who doesn't know any better.

If I had to categorize Bingo, it is definitely intended more as a pet comedy than as a pet adventure. In fact, some of the comedy is to the point of absurdity when people treat Bingo as a human. Regarding the focus, the film bounces back and forth between being exclusively about the dog or about the boy & his family.

Pretty standard plot devices: 1) Remarkable dog who is unwanted & unappreciated by adults. 2) An oddball family with a mean older brother, over-protective mother, and a preoccupied father who wants to toughen up his youngest son. 3) Typical inept villains - a stupid, mean one who thinks he's not stupid and an even stupider, dopey one who doesn't know any better. 4) The dog saves the day and eventually endears himself to everyone.

I bought this as a family film to watch with my 4yo son, but it is rated PG for good reason. Bingo is really not for younger children. Lots of unnecessary language - GD, s**t, da**it, smarta**, hell, and a couple lesser phrases that you may not want your young ones incorporating into their daily vocabulary - some shut-ups, stupids, jerks, nuts, and dumbs. What stuck out is that this was a family movie and the language seemed completely unnecessary. It sure didn't add anything.

A few disturbing scenes for young viewers - hot dogs made out of real dog, a couple scenes of children looking at adult magazines, a scene of a vehicle crashing into a storefront with people in a cage in back, a prostitute in a hotel room, a kidnapped family all tied up, heavy gunfire, knife fight, and so on.

Lots of uncouth humor - pee and poo gags, dog gender jokes, and the like. Funny to older children, but maybe not appropriate for younger ones.

I used to watch this movie all the time. Not so much because it's one of the greatest dog-centric films ever made, but just because of its pleasing nature. It's cute, it's funny, and charming, and entertaining. It doesn't go overboard in any of those areas, but has just enough of each to make it a nice movie to watch. Somewhat geared toward adults language-wise? Perhaps, yes. But there's nice acting from dogs and people alike and some memorable scenes (and, yes, some violent ones). But naturally, Bingo always comes through and saves the day. This is a fun family film.

I don't have the DVD for the movie Bingo and I have never watched the movie on DVD but only on video tape and I thought this was a cute movie. I know that the professional critics didn't like this movie and a lot of people put it down because they think it's too cutesy but when I watched the movie Bingo I enjoyed it it and I liked the cast especially Cindy Williams from the TV show Laverne and Shirley and David Rasche from the TV show Sledge Hammer and I recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies about dogs. In my opinion this movie is cute but it's not too cutesy! It is about a cute dog named Bingo who runs away from his cruel original owner and is found by a little boy who hides him in his house because his father who is a professional football player is allergic to dogs. [...] I would hate to buy the DVD if it's a pan and scan edit of a widescreen movie!

This movie was purchased for my 3 year old daughter for her birthday. Being in the Disney section and my child being a dog lover, this movie seemed ideal for her.
Once we popped the video in the dvd player, we were appalled by the use of language by the 10ish year old star of the movie. Not to mention the other harsh language and hand gestures made by the two brothers.
The plot/story line (if you think it has one) was not well developed, barely made sense and was downright idiotic. It also is violent at times with shootings and robbers making crude comments to his private areas. What was Cindy Williams thinking???
Just when you didn't think the movie can get any worse - IT DOES!
The dog was so smart and one of the best parts of the movie. The absolute best part of this movie was THE END. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you want to waste your time and have your kids be exposed to filthy mouths.
Poor Lassie is probably rolling over in his grave.....!
No stars from me for this flick!!!

I would have preferred the language remain G in this film. I believe young children learn enough bad language out of the home, that it didn't need to be included in this movie.

I purchased "Bingo" and "My Dog Skip" at the same time. Both movies seemed sort of episodic, but both were fairly entertaining. I wound up liking "Bingo" a lot more though since it was funny. Some of the comedy was a little outlandish (sort of like something you'd expect from movies like "Naked Gun," "Airplane," or "Scary Movie."), but some of the gags were downright hillarious. At times this movie seemed to be a movie about a boy and his dog and at other times it was more like the dog was the main focus. Since comedy was actually the main focus of this movie, this is forgiveable, but the movie seemed somewhat incoherent at times. While "My Dog Skip" erred on the side of the corny and sentimental, "Bingo" was filled with lots of strong comedy (and a few lame jokes too). So, if you want to have fun and see a movie about a boy and a dog, see "Bingo" and skip the other movie!
