The film's Synopsis: After an accident in the mysterious lab of maniacal scientist Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage), an ordinary beagle unexpectedly finds himself with unimaginable powers and the ability to speak. Armed with a fetching superhero costume, Underdog (voiced by Jason Lee) vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capitol City and, in particular, one beautiful spaniel named Polly Purebread (voiced by Amy Adams). When a sinister plot by Barsinister and his overgrown henchman Cad (Patrick Warburton) threatens to destroy Capitol City only Underdog can save the day.Underdog
flies into theaters on August 3, 2007 under the direction of Frederik Du Chau. Voice actors include: Jason Lee (Underdog), Jim Belushi, Peter Dinklage, John Slattery, Patrick Warburton, Brad Garrett and Amy Adams.
KJ's Take: Why, oh why did I have to look at those images. Please, everyone, tell me this looks as stupid as I think it does. This film's best hope is that the dog somehow channels the cuteness of the baby who starred in Baby's Day Out. At least then little kids who don't know any better may enjoy it.
Eye's will bleed for any poor parents who get stuck taking their kids. Parents scream, kids giggle and cry. I can see it clear as day ...
