Editorial Reviews

John Travolta and Robin Williams star in Old Dogs, the hilarious family comedy that will have you howling. Two best friends have their lives turned upside down when they're unexpectedly charged with the care of seven-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The clueless bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the children, leading to one debacle after another, with a gorilla and some pecking penguins -- and perhaps to a newfound understanding of what's really important in life. Featuring a riotously funny supporting cast including Seth Green, Kelly Preston, Matt Dillon and Lori Laughlin, Old Dogs is a laugh-a-minute comedy filled with heart.

Bonus Features Include Bloopers, Deleted Scenes, Music Video Every Little Step Performed By John Travolta And Ella Bleu Travolta, Audio Commentary By Director Walt Becker, Producer Andrew Panay and Writers David Diamond And David Weissman

3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes funny, sometimes lame March 10, 2010
Format:DVD
[3.5 stars]. Old Dogs is a mix of Disney-style kid's movie and a bizarre Robin Williams comedy. On the one hand, it is funny at times. It executes classic jokes like the golfer hitting a bystander in the groins fairly well. On the other hand, a lot of the jokes were clearly aimed at a pretty young and immature audience, like the gorilla hugging Seth Green. I don't mind kid-friendly humor, and in fact found this a lot better than the vulgar comedies aimed at teens. However, Old Dogs seems to be trying to appeal to both kids and adults, but I don't think it does.

I think part of the reason is the casting. Again, here I had mixed feelings. The acting was generally was very good for this type of movie. In addition to Robin Williams and John Travolta, it also included Seth Green, Kelly Preston, Matt Dillon, Bernie Mac, and Lori Laughlin (the little girl, Travolta's daughter, was also adorable). Yet, it might have been a bit too crowded. Rather than falling in love with the kids, I felt like I barely got to know them. At times, Travolta and Williams seemed to get a good dynamic, but it just wasn't enough.

Overall, this will probably be a satisfying comedy for "family nights." It's funny enough for parents to enjoy, but probably won't be particularly memorable. I was disappointed though that it wasn't better, especially given the great comedic talent in the cast. I'd be willing to give an Old Dogs sequel a try with the same cast, assuming the writers and directors really put some thought into coming up with a funny script.

1.0 out of 5 stars Old Hacks: September 10, 2010
Format:DVD
The more appropriate title. This poor movie you can smell a mile away. Robin Williams in a movie equals YAWN and "insult to injury". These days, J. Travolta is falling into the same category. Actually the only good movie he's been in is Pulp Fiction, thanks to the pandering nature of Q.Tarentino. It was his best role, after Barbarino.

Format:DVD
I really have no idea how to define this movie... Never have I seen a big-budget movie as unsure about what it intends to be as Disney's Old Dogs. The entire time this movie one thought constantly ran through my head: "Why?" Why waste the talents of John Travolta and Robin Williams? Why did these actors sign up for this mess? I can usually find redeeming qualities in a movie but this movie is just a mess of - dare I say it - epic proportions.

The plot is inane as it is confusing. It's a story about a father taking care of his kids (generic as can be!) but with odd slapstick that I swear reaches a surreal level in how utterly absurd the situations become. I realized this in a scene where they take the kids to Charlie's (Travolta) apartment which has a "no kids rule." An old woman spots them and suddenly a siren goes off as if there were an air strike. Why? Because the plot says so! To top this off the film ends with a "Kids want a hero" plot that comes out of nowhere, and I do mean NOWHERE that involves Robin Williams in a jetpack that can't help but remind me of Schwarzenegger in 'Jingle All The Way' (that is NOT a good sign).

There is no question in anybody's mind that John Travolta hit his lowest point with 'Battlefield Earth', but this has to be the worst I've ever seen Robin Williams! Robin Williams has had lots of ups and downs in his career, and I know the Academy Award winning actor/comedian has been in some bad movies, but this is a new low for him. Why? Because to be honest, Robin Williams is clearly not having fun with this movie! Good grief, him and Travolta seem to be trying, but they also seem well aware that the material isn't funny. Williams seems tired.

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this movie November 29, 2009
My husband and I went to see this movie this weekend and we both loved it. We laughed out loud several times which I consider a must for a successful comedy. I was pleased to find that there was plenty of fun throughout the movie rather than the only funny parts being those that were advertised on TV, which seems to happen often with comedies. The part where they got their medicine mixed up was predictable (you knew it was going to happen somehow) but very funny nonetheless. I thought it was neat how they incorporated flashback scenes in the movie and those were funny as well. I also enjoyed the beginning where they took old pictures of both Robin Willians and John Travolta and put them together to show them as friends since childhood. As someone who remembers Robin from his Mork days and John from his Welcome Back Kotter days, that was a lot of fun. I was also reminded why I had a crush on John Travolta back in 6th grade. His is still pretty easy on the eyes. He has the talent to play a bad guy or a good guy. He plays the good guy great in this movie. Robin William's talent goes without saying.

The movie was appropriate for families. My 12 year old son would have loved it. The kids were cute and did a good job. The little girl is Travolta's own daughter and she has her fathers beautiful eyes.

If you are in the mood for a fun comedy to enjoy then I highly recommend this movie.
