Movie Review: Old Dogs (2009)


My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I saw the movie Old Dogs at JP Theater, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

With Seth Green in this movie I had expected it to be a slapstick comedy. Even with John Travolta, who has done great movies: Wild Hogs, Ladder 49, Swordfish, et., in the past I was a bit skeptical. Fortunately, these are not the only two main actors in the movie, there’s also the Oscar winning Robin Williams, whom I believe have yet to appear is a bad movie; well may be RV was an exception to that rule. At almost 60, Williams is still able to carry the movie on his own with Travolta playing more as a sidekick and supporting actor.

This movie had a fairly simple plot executed well by Walt Becker. It is about a busy successful man finding the priorities in his life, and pursing them at all cost. Overall there are many touching moments while at the same time contains the humor that is famous in Williams’ films.

This is definitely a must see for Williams fans and anyone else who enjoy a happy fun night out to the movies.

  1. I just don't find this movie that funny, except two of the sequences. Robin is so not himself, and yet John is being his old self. Nothing too surprising nor too sad. A DVD movie.
