- Why I Watched This Film
I actually know the dog in the movie, Osko, and his trainer, Harry Ramos, who operates South Jersey K9 Solutions in the South Jersey/Philly area.
This would be a good movie for kids. The plot is cute. Kelly Rutherford does a great job, and Rainn Wilson (Dwight Shrute from The Office) has a few appearances and performs the narration.
If you do not know, this movie was worked on heavily by groups of kids from Boys and Girls Clubs throughout New Jersey. And I believe the profits from the film benefit those groups.
I enjoyed watching the dog's scenes, because I know what goes into that sort of training, and it was fun to watch a dog I know on screen.
Mario Lopez only makes a cameo appearance, if that is a deal breaker for you. The movie is more for kids than adults, though adults can enjoy it, too.
- Final Thoughts
Worth a watch with your kids. If you are interested in obtaining one of Osko's puppies, you should contact Harry Ramos. I know several of them, and they make excellent family protection dogs.
