Available Now: Old Dogs (my review)

Old Dogs was released for sale last Tuesday, March 9th on DVD and BLU-RAY.  

When I heard about the release of this film, I was so excited for a chance to watch it and review it. I hadn't seen it in the theaters (I don't get out to movies much) but I really wanted to. You see? I'm a big fan of John Travolta and Robin Williams always cracks me up. Yes, even if it turned out to be a waste of time, I wanted to see this movie.

The hubster and I set a night to watch it together after the kiddos were in bed since this movie is rated PG and we view these sort of movies before allowing our toddler to watch.  Almost right off the bat, we were laughing...and laughing....and laughing. Old Dogs is hysterical and heart warming. You really must see it and enjoy a good laugh.

I knew that this was a movie that my parents would appreciate so I lent it to them for viewing too. They said they really enjoyed it and then we compared notes on the parts that made us laugh while laughing about it all over again. 

**As much as we enjoyed it, we decided that this is not a movie for our (almost) three year old. There is a scene at the beginning of the film where the two buddies are celebrating a divorce and go get wasted, surrounded by girls. While there isn't anything "adult" in nature, we don't want our son getting the impression that this sort of thing is funny before he's old enough to have a full understanding. That's just our opinion.**
