Firehouse Dog (2007)



Critic Consensus: Firehouse Dog's cute premise is ruined with endless fart and poop jokes, and an overlong run time.

It may not set the box office on fire, but this canine caper is more agreeable than your average underdog tale.

Rin Tin Tin would never have okayed a script like this.

We're forced to endure plenty of scatological gags and treacly exchanges between Shane and his distant dad as the film imparts an obvious message about the frivolity of stardom.

Firehouse Dog is a run of the mill kids film. Adults will be fairly bored by it, and how many kids like it depends on how much they like goofy animal tricks.

A quietly moving story about a single Father and his Son. This decent film gets better as you watch it.

Equal parts dog adventure and father-son tale.

Audience Reviews for Firehouse Dog


I remember this being a pretty good movie, but what I remember most about it is since I saw it, I call burps "mouth farts." LOL! Major brownie points and props for that!

It was a good movie, totally for kids but to be honest I enjoy it very much.
The story about an actor dog who get lost and found by sa kid son of a fireman. I think it was original, interesting, with some funny mometns, also with good action scenes, even with some mystery.
The plot convinces me and I think it was well developed.
A good cast with good performances from everyone, specially from the dog.
In conclusion, it is the perfect family movie of the season, so enjoyable and entertaining.
