Review Boy meets dog, bonds with dad and foils a dangerous arsonist in "Firehouse Dog," a likable but ungainly mutt of a movie in which a very smart canine unexpectedly becomes fireman's best friend. Leaving no heartstrings untugged and no doggie-fart jokes uncracked, scruffy pic reps a very mixed breed of obvious humor, gently moving father-son drama and sub-"Backdraft" trial by fire...Familiar boy-and-his-dog scenario is enlivened by the fact that Shane initially loathes Dewey, who, far from acting like a normal stray, expects to be treated like the celebrity canine he is...Building-on-fire set pieces are workmanlike but capably handled, and not too scary for tots. Title role is well played by four red-coated Irish terriers (with the Tolkien-inspired names of Arwen, Frodo, Rohan and Stryder), though some of the dog's more athletic feats suggest possible f/x enhancements.

Review The last time Bruce Greenwood and Steven Culp teamed together in a movie it was to play, respectively, John and Robert Kennedy in the Bay of Pigs saga Thirteen Days. That factoid will not mean anything to the youngsters that their new movie, Firehouse Dog, is meant to amuse, but it ought to give the kids' parents pause. After all, what are actors noted for their intensity doing in a family film? Good question, since the answer seems to be that neither the screenwriters nor director Todd Holland ever stopped to consider their target audience. As a result, they have ended up with a movie that is probably too intense for younger children yet too simplistic for their older siblings or grownups...The plot, blending crime (including murder) and the corrupt intersection of business and politics, is not exactly one that is going to hold the average seven-year-old's attention. As well, the movie's reliance on such gross-out jokes as Rexxx relieving himself into a pot of chili will not engage most parents.
