Apparently they are serious.

I heard they were doing this and assumed that underdog would be cgi animated, but more like the cartoon. Y'know standing upright and all that. I didn't anticipate he'd look like a real dog. Then I saw some pics. Either way, this wasn't a film I was looking forward to.

And I recall Underdog being quite the bumbler from the cartoon. This Underdog seems like quite the badass in taking out that cat burgler.

At least Jason Lee gets more more.

They filmed this in the city where I work. The production actually got their groceries at my store. It was kind of cool at first but it got aggravating after a few weeks.

Back on topic, I imagine my son will want to see this at some point.

Ha! I like how the trailer fooled you into thinking it was a serious movie, but it really wasn't!

Also, dogs and cats don't like each other... Get it?

i guess with all the Air Bud movies, Cats & Dogs, Garfield, and Firehouse Dog... this isnt all that crazy of an idea. Definitely not on my must see list though. Now Mighty Mouse... thats another story...

No, no, no, no, no, no... I'm sorry but no! I love the cartoon Underdog, many a saturday morning was wasted watching it on Commander Tom during my childhood, and now this! Still, it's good to see Eddie from Frasier getting the big roles in the movies.

All I can say is if they better not do this to Hong Kong Phooey if they make a live action movie!

Just watched this trailer last night and was showing my girlfriend what Underdog looked like back in the cartoon and she thought it was dumb too.

It would have been better if they made him more animated rather then a real dog.

I think you people are being too harsh. Apparently, Justin Timberlake is great in this film!

Appreciated the references to the SUPERMAN movies (up to and including RETURNS); it can't be any worse than the SCOOBY DOO movies.

This flick may not be for the 300 worshippers, but I'd rather go with my little cousins to see a movie like this with some camp and some Jason Lee wit in it than an Air Bud type. Hell I'm pretty sure they're mocking the new Superman in the trailer, which is points.

I did noticed this when I'm sorting my movie list at Fantasy Mogul some time ago. I was a little bit interested because I listen to Howard Stern (If you know what I mean, The Underdog Lady), and then I checked IMDb that has some pics. Pretty silly - especially after I saw that trailer. But who knows.

I just hope the get the retread of the theme song right. One of my favorite cartoon themes ever. Also, if Simon is the villain I will Netflix it. What the hell?

Dumb, why? Why all this bitching? This movie is obviously not targeted to you teenage and young adult males. I'd imagine that children would like to see this. Not everything is meant to be for you .

If I had kids, I wouldn't want them seeing this kind of poorly thought out crap.

I wish they would get Ted's foursome from Scrubs to sing the theme song. That would be awesome.
