Editorial Reviews

When a suburban family inherits a summer home on an idyllic island, they decide to escape the big city to try and bring their family closer together. As they get settled, a mangy, injured mutt name FRANK wanders into their home. Fearful of a stray pet, the father, played by Jon Gries (Napoleon Dynamite) tries to take the dog away to protect his family. However, the children beg to keep FRANK. Seeing that this is the first time his children have united for a cause, he makes a compromise with them to nurse FRANK back to health and then put him up for adoption at the end of the summer. But they soon discover the importance of FRANK in their lives and how much love he has brought the family. As FRANK teaches them to be together, he risks his life to save them in ways no one imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great family movie!!! October 30, 2008
Fun summer movie (if its not summer when you watch it, it will make you look forward to next summer when things warm up again). Really is great for the whole family to watch. I loved how this one loveable dog managed to bring a whole family together. Everything from the workaholic father to the lonely son to the difficult teenage daughter - this one cute dog brings them all together again as a family. Entertaining for people of all ages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Frank December 7, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
"Frank" is true family film. Our kids laughed and laughed -- and we did, too. There are many poignant moments and beautiful scenes that make us want to watch it over and over again. You don't need to love dogs to love this movie -- it is for everyone. Go give it a try and share it with your friends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute family movie November 29, 2008
I thought the acting left a little to be desired but it was still a cute family movie. It is nice to watch these type of movies sometimes even if you don't have a family. I am such a dog person it was hard to hold back tears at times when the dad seemed so insensitive towards the dog when the rest of the family had fallen in love with it. It was great seeing Garrett Morris, the former SNL star back in the day, again. I hadn't seen him in anything for many, many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT December 3, 2010
By Nester
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I LOVED Frank!! More important, so did my children. What a refreshing film -- humor that is appropriate for all ages, a feel-good story and family fun. I wish Hollywood would make more movies like this. The acting was great, especially "Frank," the little boy, the daughter and the dad! Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Movie October 10, 2008
This is a great family movie if you have young children and don't want violent or obseen images waking your children up at night. The first five minutes might be slightly scary (just because of the music, and it's dark, and noises are unknown at the time). After that, PERFECT.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rank Frank June 8, 2009
This is creepy little movie. It misses just about every target possible for family, manages to wander all over the humor map and hit absolutely nothing.

Family entertainment, great idea, love it. Really enjoy the sweet innocent film that is funny, pretty, about animals, relationships... all kinds of things. But this one, what in the world is it about, and who is the target audience?

The story opens at a cemetary in the middle of the night. Three boys talk on their radio about a "monster" that's there. Every once in a while the viewer gets a "monster" eye view of the action, all blurry, double imaged, and shaky, stalking these three boys. All of a sudden one boy disappears. Another chases after the disappearing boy, and he's gone. Then we get to see headlines about the horrible animal that is on the loose. OK, so some little kid watching this, hey, where did the two boys go? The movie doesn't resolve that - you're supposed to believe they were eaten.

More of the same later on, blurry, double vision, shaky camera. Newspaper headlines telling people to stay inside. Then this anal retentive dad builds a trap for the monster after it ransacked his trash can. We hear all kinds of noises that night. And the next morning, the trap is destroyed - some huge animal did this. So the cute and cuddly little boy in the family goes off to the cemetary with a hot dog, looking for the "monster." My 13 year old son said, Oh no, don't go there. I can only imagine younger kids. So yeah, the "monster" turns out to be a big old sweet Bull Mastiff dog, but dang it, for the first half hour little kids will be scared stiff.

The dad is a horrible parody of anal retentiveness.
