Everybody, young and old, should watch Cool Dog. Rainy is the hero we need in these times, and he will inspire you as he inspired me.
For me, this movie would have been impossible to get through if not for looking over at my 7 year old and seeing how happy she looked <**SPOILER ALERT**> UNTIL THEY NEARLY KILLED THE DOG AT THE END. The dog was motionless, a paramedic comes in, pronounces the DOG DEAD, puts it on a stretcher, and before they haul it away, it magically "wakes up" due to a piece of red licorice having been given it for its trip to heaven - where there would be more red licorice waiting (according to the kid). O.K. Sure.. Well, my kids were screaming for the 2 minutes it took to "revive" the dog with the candy. They really loved that old dog and knocking it off was very abrupt and definitely unexpected.
Another odd thing about this movie: I don't think I've seen a porn since I was 11 (I'm 45), but everyone in this movie seems to me to be a moonlighting porn actor or actress. Some of the props and sets seem to be moonlighting too.... not a big deal... just sayin. Maybe it's the quality of the acting and writing (or lack of), but whatever...
What I think this might be is that some porn people got some time off, rented a smart dog and a few child actors and made a "clean" film while they were in between jobs. I have no proof and don't really care, but that's what it seems like.
So, if you have kids, they might like the movie. You probably won't, but maybe you can joke about how bad and weird it all is.
Anyway as you can probably guess, the apartment doesn't allow pets of any kind and this includes German Shepherds too. This makes Jackson incredibly disappointed. Jen Kober, the tenant of the apartment, is about as nasty as one can imagine. She has a VERY unpleasant attitude towards pets and kids. However there's a secret that she's keeping- she's actually keeping pets in the basement of the building for suspicious money-making reasons. The story gets really whacky when this part arrives, and actually lost me by then.
Anyway the story is supposed to be about this German Shepherd who makes the amazing journey from Louisiana to New York. He's a clever dog- he's able to trick the local small town zookeeper (where the dog's being kept oddly enough and not a boarding kennel) cause a ruckus, make all the animals boisterous and pursue their attempt to mess with the zookeeper (including baboons and a hilarious scene with a spitting alpaca among others) until the dog eventually escapes, aboards a train with a few checker-playing drifters, and makes his way to the city. I feel the story could have shown more tear-jerking excitement upon the dog arriving to the city. Instead he arrives and the family treats it as a fairly normal trip. Really?Read more ›
