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

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. :)

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!

This is a movie that my husband grew up watching and has super fond memories of. We watched it together, and it was cute, but not a personal favorite for me. But we had a good time laughing together, and it was definitely nostalgic for him. The storyline is pretty cute - I'm sure when I have kiddos they'll end up enjoying it.

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.

This is the type of movie that went straight to video (DVD these days) when it first came out that if you come across somewhere for a couple of dollars is well worth obtaining. It's got quite a few recognisable faces in it, the most obvious is the kid from Two and a Half Men, back when he was still a little kid. This may have even been before that show even started, as he's pretty young and doesn't have a great amount of lines, although he is in a fair few scenes obviously.

It's basic plot is about the mob trying to carry out a hit on an FBI agent, that FBI agent just happens to be a dog. Of course the dog ends up in the back of a postal workers (Arquette) truck, who just happens to be reluctantly looking after his hot neighbour's kid who he's trying to hook up with. This is a fish out of water type comedy with Arquette not knowing what to do with either a boy or a dog, as well as the dog being a very serious dog who has been forbidden to play his whole life but whose police instinct kick in every time he sees a crime going down. Thrown in some Home Alone type bumbling hit men who get outwitted by the dog time and time again. Scenes with the mother tying to call/get home are also quite funny. The pet store scenes are the best, although cheesy they are lots of fun, don't get up to use the bathroom or anything when they arrive there.

You know what type of gags you're going to get with this type of movie but See Spot Run manages to pull them off and keep you entertained. The start is a little slow but once the dog and encounter each other it keeps the humour and pace nicely.

Had this on VHS so am in the process of redoing my collection. Disney is hard to find because they run so many copies for a time and quit making copies to put it out again later. So I was fortunate to find this one at a reasonable price. This is a kid friendly movie but I'm hooked on this one. I laugh at it every time I watch and I will watch it at least once a year. Great family entertainment for everyone.
