When I first found out that Disney was doing Underdog (from seeing the "coming soon" on the El Capitan site), I was skeptical. Then I found out it was live action, which made me wonder, what the heck? We saw the trailer in front of POTC3 at the El Capitan. Part of it seems funny. Part of it seems stupid. So I won't be rushing to see it, but I'm not 100% dead set against seeing it. If we happen to have the time, we might go. But then, I saw Garfield, and I *hated* that.
I think this movie looks SUPER cute, and like it'll be a fun, family film to take my cousins to later this summer. That dog is adorable. I thought the trailer was pretty funny, actually. And I think Jason Lee is a good choice for the voice, too.
I dunno, I watched some of the cartoon version of Underdog on YouTube, and I have to say that I'm not very opposed to them making some changes to things...some of the original cartoon was pretty campy, more so than I remembered it, so I won't mind if this version tones it down some. As long as it gets the spirit of things right - which I think it will, judging from the trailers, then I'll be happy.
My dad is a huge Underdog fan. I think it's best if I don't tell him about it. He will either have a heart attack, or worse, lecture me for hours about how things were just better 'back then'.
"What single word is the name of a magazine, a cereal, a board game, and a never-ending series of soul-crushing disappointments which slowly leech away your hope and idealism until you are nothing more than a bitter husk of a man?"
Ok, I just seen the trailer. I admit I was never a fan of the show, I only watched it when there were no other cartoon showing, but I seem remember that Underdog didn't have a master. In fact, he was self employed as a shoe shine boy, and Polly was a reporter. I also notice there alot of humans around, I remember only one and he ws the villian. So this begs the question, why bother with it if you are going totally change it and especially with an obscure cartoon such as Underdog?
