Old Dogs Blu-Ray Review

Normally I'm not a fan of Robin Williams... or John Travolta for that matter. But I was very interested in seeing this movie after watching previews for it. And my thoughts were that it was just okay.

The premise is that Dan and Charlie have been best friends for years. They are in a lucrative business together as well. Seven years ago after Dan got a divorce, Charlie took him on a wild weekend that ended in Dan getting married to a woman he just met, which quickly ended in an annulment. Well, turns out he got her pregnant and she comes back into his life after those seven years to tell him that she is going to jail for two weeks and that he is a father- to twins!

With Charlie's help, Dan takes care of the kids while their mother is in jail, while trying to land a huge business deal. There's chaos, laughter, tears and a lot of grandpa jokes.

I felt like this could have been great, but it wasn't. I did laugh out loud several times, but it was just kind of blah in terms of plot and thought that Kelly Preston's character was not well written. I think the highlight of the movie was Seth Green, who was hysterical in this.

Family Time Factor: Mild enough for all ages, good family night movie.

MOTR Grade: C-
