AWFUL
25 March 2003 | by RandinoSee all my reviews

Summerdog could possibly be the worst made movie I have ever seen. My grandmother bought this movie at a grocery store because the dog on the box looked like my grandparents' dog, who had recently died. When we put the tape in the VCR we were blown away by a movie that looked and sounded awful, not to mention the story was a bit hard to follow.

This movie followed the story of a boy and his family and the stray dog that they find. Also during the film they move from the big city to the country.

The problems of this movie are too numerous, but the worst one of all was the whole production. The film quality was terrible, so you could barely see what was going on, but even worse was the sound quality. You can barely understand anything anybody is saying. All and all it is an awful movie, and one that you want to avoid. Don't be fooled by the cute dog on the box, because this movie is terrible.
