Becky and I took the kids to see the new John Travolta and Robin Williams movie Old Dogs last week at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO for Thanksgiving. The Yahoo website at Old Dogs describes the movie as follows:
“Two best friends — one unlucky-in-love divorcee and the other a fun-loving bachelor — have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of 7-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins, leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a new-found understanding of what’s really important in life…”
Old Dogs is another movie that the “Critics” didn’t like at all. Most of them giving it a D for a rating, but once again we have to disagree with their reviews. Old Dogs is a very silly movie and most of it is pretty ridiculous, but it’s funny with plenty of laughs for a family film. Our kids thought it was a riot and John Travolta and Robin Williams characters are a good mix together for this comedy. There are plenty of laughs and they even poke fun at their age.
This is not a movie that you’ll be mentally stimulated by, but that’s not the purpose. You also won’t see some whacko’ running around slicing people up with a chainsaw or some of the other crap that Hollywood puts out as entertainment either. Old Dogs is a clean movie with some good old fashioned humor and some really funny parts like Robin Williams tattoo on his chest is a crackup.
The kids and Becky liked it much more than I did, but I still thought it was entertaining enough to rate it as a really good rental.
