DVD Review: Treasure Hounds

The hunt begins! An adventure for the whole family, Treasure Hounds arrives on DVD, Digital HD, and On Demand August 15 from Lionsgate. Norm MacDonald stars as the voice of Skipper, a dog searching for hidden treasure with his owner, Jack. When their town is on the brink of an evacuation, Skipper and Jack race against the clock to find the treasure that will save the town. Considered “physical comedy at its best and…well worth seeing” by the Dove Foundation, and awarded the Dove Family Seal of Approval, the DVD includes a behind the scenes featurette and limited-edition specialty packaging. From the producers ofVampire Dog, the Treasure Hounds DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

Moving into his late grandfather’s house, young Jack inherits the old man’s dog, Skipper (Norm MacDonald) — who can talk! With the sassy pooch’s help, Jack learns that Grandpa left a priceless Spanish treasure hidden somewhere in the town. Jack joins forces with a trio of clever neighbor kids — a goth girl, a socialite, and a jokester—to find the valuable booty, with Skipper leading the way. But can they outrun the brazen, bumbling thieves that will stop at nothing to seize the prize for themselves?

My Thoughts

Treasure Hounds is an adorable movie about a dog who takes his family on a hunt for lost treasure. In this movie, Jack inherits a home from his grandfather which comes complete with a talking dog named Skipper. Jack learns that his grandmother hid a treasure that is worth a small fortune. He makes friends with some of the other neighborhood kids,and Skipper leads them on an adventure to find the gold. However, there are some thieves who learned about the treasure too, and the kids will need to outwit them to get to it first.

My kids always love movies with animals in them, especially dogs.  This one was lots of  fun because of the exciting adventure the dog and his human friends were led on. It's like a combination of India Jones and Air Bud with a little Home Alone mixed in when the kids are outmaneuvering the bad guys. The story-line is a little predictable, but will be a lot of fun for younger viewers. There is no serious violence, but lots of laughs and a little intrigue. This is a great choice for a family film on family movie night.  It's a flick the whole family is sure to enjoy.
