My Thoughts

Rock Dog is an adorable movie about a little dog named Bodi who dreams of being a rock star. When a radio falls from the sky right into this hands, that convinces him that it's a dream that is destined to become a reality.  He leaves his small wool-making town far behind and goes on a quest to find the music. Even though his father, who had outlawed music, is against the plan, he heads to the city to jump start his career. Of course, he'll have to outwit the town wolf to get there. The DVD also includes some great behind he scenes footage and music videos.

My kids loved this movie. The characters are colorful and fun, and the story-line was entertaining. They are lots of laughs and toe-tapping songs that you can't get out of your head. The story also reminds us that any one can make their dreams come true if they take the time to work on them. This is a wonderful family film and one I'm sure we'll return to again and again.
