Things take a turn for the maudlin in Dogpound Shuffle's final third, as Step receives some terrible news and his relationship with Pritt temporarily dissolves. This portion of the flick alternates between touching and overblown, as moving scenarios are occasionally undermined by the hammy screenplay (an extended monologue from the lady who works at the pound seems like a needless attempt at enhancing the drama of the scene). Yes, the information I've just given you may sound like a spoiler, but it really isn't. Moody does some strong work throughout, transforming a somewhat cliched character into a three-dimensional human being.
I don't know whether Dogpound Shuffle was initially shot in 1.33:1, but the cinematography certainly looks unnaturally cramped in this full-frame transfer. I'm guessing this is a pan-and-scan job, but my apologies to the folks at Scorpion if that's not the case (though if the film was shot in full-frame, I have to wonder why the cinematographer didn't pull back a bit more).Read more ›
Story about 2 drifters. Who meet up, we don’t know why they got together. Or why Pritt David Soul with an aging tap dancer Ron Moody Steps is on the streets. They seem to be surviving money wise. David plays the harmonica makes some money. His jeans are so clean and new, loves to eat big meals. Meals was a lot cheaper than.
Ron Moody has his dog picked up and put in the pound. Ron has gone back to the pound and left a deposit for them to keep his dog until he has the rest of the money needed. David stays with him to help. They are seen playing music and Ron Moody doing a shoe shuffle dance, they are invited to a party and are paid with enough money to take the dog home. When he returns to the pound only to discover that the pound assistant has given the dog to another family.
Ron and David break into the pound and find the address of the family. Cause trouble letting all the dogs go free and fighting their way around.
They find the house and wait for the parent to come home and whistle for the dog. You never see the children! The dog comes flying down the stairs and out on to the road narrowly missed by the approaching car. All is well and they return to their life of walking along the beach.
A good way to spend an afternoon looking back in time.
It is a wee gem of a film which all my family really enjoyed despite the not so good playback.
I have been searching for the DVD for many years now and cannot begin to say how delighted I am to at last enjoy this film
Ron Moody is very good especially his dancing. David Soul has excelled himself and shows what a good character actor he is.A very simple plot but great to get away from the sex,bad language and over the top violence which is the the norm of today.Not enough of the wee dog.
Not everyone's cup of tea but Dog Pound Shuffle certainly is mine.
I recommend this.
Much appreciated. Dan

I absolutely loved it! I'm a fool for that cutie, David Soul. And I enjoyed the tap dancing, and the whole little story! Steps is very talented, and Pritt is too darn cute!Published 12 months ago by Sandra
This is a very fun, sweet, up-lifting movie. There is a little "not nice" language but my kids, watch with me and I talk to them about it!Published 19 months ago by Cynthia J. Boswell
