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.

4.0 out of 5 stars OLD STYLE COMEDY FUN August 1, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a movie with the feel of an old fashion Disney movie, but designed for the modern expanded definition of family. Seven years ago Robin Williams got divorced. His buddy, John Travolta takes him to South Beach where Williams meets a girl, gets drunk, gets married, then has it annulled. However Williams still has feelings for his one night wife and after 7 years writes her a letter.

They meet and he finds out he is the father of her two children. Through a series of circumstances, Williams agrees to watch his estranged kids for 2 weeks. Travolta aids Williams as they attempt to play dad with disastrous results. The jokes are a bit trite and much of the humor is slap stick. Most adults will find something to enjoy in the film while they watch it with their kids. The theme of the movie is that friends, love, and family are the most important things in life and together we can work through anything.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny At Times March 17, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I am always on the lookout for a movie that has good clean fun for the whole family. We look for movies that the little people in our family can enjoy as well as the big people. When I revieiwed Old Dogs, I had concept in mind as the jacket clearly states - "Fun for the Whole Family."

Synopsis: 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.

My Opinion: This movie was hilarious and almost too much at times. This would not have been my favorite kind of movie as the comedy bordered on just plain dumb at times. However, the last time I said that about a movie, my brother thought it was great. My husband who also viewed it with me found that the majority of the humor was over the top but towards the end, he was glued and dying of laughter. The movie has a sweet story of a father getting to know his children for the first time and the sacrifices he must make to get to know them.
