Just watched "See Spot Run" and I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. The dog is adorable, the kid is funny, the stuff the mother goes thru is unbelievable (sometimes predictable) and funny none the less. We had a great time watching this movie.
It doesn't take long to get interested in. The main character goes through some really funny situations, some of which he has under control but many of which he does not. There in lies the humor.
It really isn't a "children's" movie but I'm sure they will enjoy it. There is crude humor and a little language but nothing to put this movie on the "NO SHOW" list for children.
SO if you need to kill 97 minutes and want to enjoy the time pick this movie up. Oh yeah, there are three little videos of "talented" dogs in the extras. They are the winners of a dog talent contest and they are worth the couple minutes it take to watch.

"Is SEE SPOT RUN a great movie? NOT REALLY. Is it entertaining? Yes, I must admit it made me laugh quite a bit. It's really a slapstick farce with a blonde David Arquette mugging it up like the world was coming to an end. He plays a dog-fearing mailman who has his own devices to elude the dogs on Bleeker Street, "Canine Alley." Agent 11, a canine FBI agent, is targeted by mob boss Paul Sorvino (humorously so), so he is sent to witness protection for canines in Alaska, or he's supposed to be. A crooked agent sets 11 up, and the mob's hit men (especially funny is the late Joe Viterelli who plays mobsters with unabashed fun) go after the dog to kill him. 11 manages to escape to where else? Arquette's mail truck, where he is instantly adored by cute little Angus T. Jones, the son of the hottie (Leslie Bibb) Arquette is mooning over.
Michael Clarke Duncan has nice moments as 11's "partner" who can't seem to function without the pooch in his life. There are lots of predictable gags and even though the showdown in the pet store is incredibly goofy, it is funny. So if it makes you laugh, it succeeds as entertainment if not a great film!"
Very funny movie!

"The initial reviews I read about this movie when it came out were not very positive and so I wasn't planning on seeing it in the theater. A good friend of mine invited me to go along with him and his family and kids and so I decided it would be fun to go just to hang out with them.I was so glad I went. I laughed sooooo hard! Then I invited my friend Matt to go and we went and laughed our brains out some more. I actually saw the movie again after that and it was just as funny as the first time. I like good slapstick and "stupid" humor and this one just nailed me on both ends. It had a little bit of everything in it; action, humor, romance, did I mention humor (hehehe). I will most certainly buy the DVD when it's available and have fun watching this one over again.Not only is the movie funny, but it promotes family values and is great for kids and adults alike. Highly recommended no matter your age range. Good stuff! Rare to see something really funny and entertaining from Hollywood that doesn't leave you feeling crappy after walking out of the theater. You'll be smiling all the way. :)"
