Theatrical Trailer

A family film for an era when "family film" means scatological jokes, gratuitous violence, and shapeless storytelling, See Spot Run is about par for the course. Punctuated by many a lowbrow moment (scenes of combustible zebra flatulence, for instance), Spot has trouble staying true to its major story line despite the latter's redeeming qualities. That story concerns an FBI-trained bull mastiff who flees the wrath of a mobster (Paul Sorvino) and ends up in the care of a pooch-averse postman (David Arquette) and the latter's little neighbor (Angus T. Jones). With a nutball like Arquette in the lead (and vigorous support work from comic Anthony Anderson of Me, Myself, and Irene), the antics come fast and furious, including a wild bit of slapstick in which Arquette simultaneously gets his head stuck in a fishbowl and his body densely wrapped in helium-inflated plastic. On the other hand, there's a touching simplicity to the relationship between man and canine, each of whom has been terribly lonely in his own way. Sure, the filmmakers went for some cheap laughs, but there is much else here that is harder-earned. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny movie! July 28, 2001
The initial reviews I read about this movie when it came out were not very positive and so I wasn't planning on seeing it in the theater. A good friend of mine invited me to go along with him and his family and kids and so I decided it would be fun to go just to hang out with them.
I was so glad I went. I laughed sooooo hard! Then I invited my friend Matt to go and we went and laughed our brains out some more. I actually saw the movie again after that and it was just as funny as the first time. I like good slapstick and "stupid" humor and this one just nailed me on both ends. It had a little bit of everything in it; action, humor, romance, did I mention humor (hehehe). I will most certainly buy the DVD when it's available and have fun watching this one over again.
Not only is the movie funny, but it promotes family values and is great for kids and adults alike. Highly recommended no matter your age range. Good stuff! Rare to see something really funny and entertaining from Hollywood that doesn't leave you feeling crappy after walking out of the theater. You'll be smiling all the way. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars DOG'S BEST FRIEND March 13, 2006
Is SEE SPOT RUN a great movie? NOT REALLY. Is it entertaining? Yes, I must admit it made me laugh quite a bit. It's really a slapstick farce with a blonde David Arquette mugging it up like the world was coming to an end. He plays a dog-fearing mailman who has his own devices to elude the dogs on Bleeker Street, "Canine Alley." Agent 11, a canine FBI agent, is targeted by mob boss Paul Sorvino (humorously so), so he is sent to witness protection for canines in Alaska, or he's supposed to be. A crooked agent sets 11 up, and the mob's hit men (especially funny is the late Joe Viterelli who plays mobsters with unabashed fun) go after the dog to kill him. 11 manages to escape to where else? Arquette's mail truck, where he is instantly adored by cute little Angus T. Jones, the son of the hottie (Leslie Bibb) Arquette is mooning over.

Michael Clarke Duncan has nice moments as 11's "partner" who can't seem to function without the pooch in his life. There are lots of predictable gags and even though the showdown in the pet store is incredibly goofy, it is funny. So if it makes you laugh, it succeeds as entertainment if not a great film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously funny movie March 16, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I never went to see this movie in the cinema. It was advertised on its release as being the only movie showing the preview for 'Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone'. I figured that any movie that had to rely on _that_ sort of publicity to get an audience had to be really bad. Boy, was I wrong.
My father hired this movie out for the family to watch (him having a bizarre sense of humour, and all) and I watched it simply so he wouldn't feel bad about picking a dud movie. Well, I think we spent the next two or three weeks searching high and low for a copy to buy.
This is a very, _very_ funny movie. I think there were only two or three places in it that I wasn't laughing. Yes, it is plugged as a kid's film, and there are a couple of spots with a bit of crude toilet humour, but don't be put off by that.
See Spot Run is a laugh-a-minute movie in every sense of the word. Certain characters are over-acted to perfection (see Agent 11's handler and Mr Arquette's neurotic dog-hating character) while others are played straight with equally good results.
Possibly the best scenes in the film revolved around the demolition of a Pet Store interior, including a fish bowl, sea urchins, bubble wrap and helium, and a scene near the end where Spot rolls a single ball across the floor to the Mob boss in a very obvious taunt (he'd already bitten off one of the crook's afore-mentioned appendages).
This movie is hilarious, while also managing a touching feel-good finish. This is one film you can watch over and over, and never get sick of.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Fun For Adults, Too! April 21, 2009
This was a very pleasant surprise; a very good comedy filled with a lot of laughs and - more surprise - not much raunch and profanity. Wow, that's unusual for today. Some people say this was strictly made for kids. Well, I am hardly a kid..... and I loved it.

All the characters in here are just that: characters, from goofy David Arquette's "Gordon"- to the cute kid, Angus T. Jones ("James") to big Michael Clarke Duncan ("Murdoch") to pretty Leslie Bibb ("Stephanie") to Joe Viterelli ("Gino") to Anthony Anderson ("Bennie") - to Paul Sorvino ("Sonny Talia"). Yeah, the last guy is the only one with a last name. I especially liked Viterelli and Duncan.

The film gets too silly in one spot - at the store, where the slapstick goes on way too long, but otherwise this is a funny movie. As the cliché goes, fun for all ages.
