Movie Info

When his Zen master is mysteriously murdered and a biochemical maniac sets into motion a devious plan to control the entire world, it's up to one karate-chopping canine to leap into action in a hilarious tale of man versus man's best friend from A Christmas Story director Bob Clark. His master may be gone, but Cho Cho is determined to find out who the culprit behind the killing really is. In order to carry out his daring mission he'll need a little human help though, and when Cho Cho teams with a brilliant but bumbling computer wizard, there's no mystery that this unlikely pair can't solve. Starring Jon Voight, Simon Rex, and Jaime Pressley.

Helen Keller could have made a better movie using only a Polaroid camera and some paper dolls.

Hey, Bob Clark, when did you become the Uwe Boll of kiddie comedy?

Audience Reviews for Karate Dog

Snubbed by the Academy, Voight delivers the performance of a lifetime as a criminal mastermind who will do anything to get what he desires. Impeccable acting mixed with a brilliant script and visionary direction create a story that will have you on the edge of your seat, while also leaving the viewer wanting an encore as soon as the credits are scrolling. The emotional tension in this film is second to none. Also snubbed by the Academy include the stunning and life-like CGI, Bob Clark's direction, Gregory Poppen and Steven Paul's original screenplay, and Chevy Chase's unbelievable voice acting abilities. I'm just sad I could only give it five stars. Folks, this is one you don't want to miss.

Day 11: The Karate Dog. For a movie called The Karate Dog, there is ridiculously little karate, let alone a dog doing it. I only recommend this movie for one reason: Jon Voight fighting the titular canine voiced by Chevy Chase.
