Firehouse Dog


Firehouse Dog (2007)


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

Movie Info

Rex, Hollywood's top-grossing canine, is known for his extreme athletic abilities and diva-like demeanor. His perks package, rivaling that of any A-list celebrity, includes Kobe beef, a poodle harem, and a diamond collar. Rex's luck--and Hollywood high life--runs out while shooting a commercial. An aerial stunt goes awry, leading Rex's handlers to presume he's dead. But Rex is merely lost--alone, filthy and unrecognizable in an unfamiliar city. Chased by animal control, he takes refuge in grubby abandoned lofts, a far cry from his former luxurious lifestyle. Shane Fahey, a bright but rebellious 12-year-old, has exasperated his father Connor for the umpteenth time. A single parent and captain of the rundown inner city fire station known as Dogpatch, Connor is charged with inspiring the sad-sack company: veteran and firehouse cook Joe Musto, the super-fit and strong-willed mother hen Pepita "Pep" Clemente (Mayte Garcia), the exhausted family-man Lionel Bradford, and the calendar-worthy rookie Terence Kahn. The team is still coping with the recent loss of their former captain, Connor's brother. Shane is also troubled by his uncle's death, and he's been acting out by ditching school.

Critic Reviews for Firehouse Dog

All Critics (82) | Top Critics (31)

I myself growled and whimpered like an abused canine after a couple of hours of this sub-Lassie silliness, though the film threw me the occasional choc-drop in the form of a gag.

Jul 20, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

Time Out
Top Critic

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

Apr 22, 2007 | Full Review…

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

To me it doesn't mesh well.

Apr 9, 2007

It's harmless enough for young kids, but director Todd Holland seems to have little interest in making anything but a generic, instantly forgettable family-friendly feature.

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!
