Every once in a while a movie comes out that has you dancing in your seat. The musical adventure that is Rock Dog is just one of those movies. Based around Brodi who sets out on a path to find his through music. Unlike other coming of age tales, Rock Dog takes viewers through a musical tale that involves a super star, a real threat to his village and a unique way of fighting the bad guys.
We loved Rock Dog when we saw it in theaters. The movie is well animated, has you dancing along to the music and has a family friendly story. Our youngest reviewer loved it so much she was dancing in the aisles. It’s a nice change compared the fast paced and sometimes scarier options some movies have for kids. And now we can bring this kid safe movie home and enjoy the musical movie over and over again.

About Rock Dog:
For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool-making sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Lewis Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary – and reclusive – musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast.
If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog … more than a Rock God… he’ll be a ROCK DOG!
