This movie is awesome. It's got a great Kiwi feel to it and all the characters of footrot flats comic strip are brought to life in this film. Everyone did a fantastic job.

Loved it. Love the comics. As an Aussie, I assume this is the standard lifestyle of country New Zillunders eh?

When you find yourself still quoting a film 20 years after you saw it in a Mornington cinema, you know it's got something going for it. It didn't matter that most voice characters were from the wrong side of the Tasman, it did a fair job of recreating the ambiance of the famous Murray Ball comic strip. This film inspired my AFL shouts of "somebody kick somebody!", all huge cats to be named Horse and a standard response to all dogs with "Woof woof bloody woof woof woof!" Pure gold, really.

One of NZ's best exports. Loved the comics. Loved the movie. Topped off by Dave Dobbyn's musical touch.

Watched this again recently, probably didn't enjoy it as much as when I was a kid, but still worth a look

One of NZ's favourite cartoon characters thrown onto the big screen. Plenty of local music too sing along with too. Haven't seen it since it came out but probably worth catching with the kids.

Excellent big-screen adaptation of the comic strip, totally faithful to its storylines. Clarke is perfect as the voice of Footrot, Rowley also seems to suit Dog well. Billy T. James in a bit-part. Memorable not so much for the plot but the Dave Dobbyn song, ‘Slice of Heaven’.

Yep. I'm completely biased. Do something about it. This movie is pure, glorious nostalgia to me. When I was a kid I think I went through two or three copies of this on video.

Still luveded it even if the sound had dated quite a bit. Funnily enough I could still remember bits of it from seeing it when I was a wee lil ankle biter...
