Rock Dog DVD

My daughters and 4 and 5 and they have been dying to see Rock Dog. We missed it in theaters because we happened to have a lot going on that month. We have a small theater in town and they actually only had it playing there for 2 weeks. I have been promising that we would watch it as soon as it came out on Blu-ray. Lucky for them (and me!) we were able to get an advance copy from Lionsgate – and it made their day! I mean, just look at those happy faces!

Honestly, I was really impressed with this movie. A lot of times a movie that holds my girls’ attention, will not hold mine. My husband and I often catch ourselves drifting off for a quick nap. But this movie was actually really cute! I should have known because Surf’s Up is one of my favorite kids movies and Ash Brannon wrote and directed Rock Dog as well. The moral of this movie is never give up on your dreams, something I think every little one should learn. Make Rock Dog the feature film for your next family movie night and purchase here.
