Product Overview

"There's no need to fear. Underdog is here!" The superhero canine with a gift for rhyme returns in an all new live-action re-imagination of the classic cartoon, Underdog!

After an accident in the mysterious lab of Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage), an ordinary beagle unexpectedly finds himself with unimaginable powers and the ability to speak. Armed with a fetching superhero costume, Underdog (voiced by comedian Jason Lee) vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capitol City and, in particular, one beautiful spaniel named Polly Purebred (voiced by Academy Award nominee Amy Adams). When a sinister plot by Barsinister and his overgrown henchman Cad (Patrick Warburton) threatens to destroy Capitol City, only Underdog can save the day!

ReviewSource Variety
Review Not unlike its accident-prone superhero, "Underdog" is clumsy, fast-moving and thoroughly inoffensive. Tale of a genetically modified mutt who becomes a canine crime-fighter falls somewhere between stale retread and half-hearted parody of superhero-movie formulas, bearing more of a resemblance to live-action talking-dog fare like "Wishbone" or "Look Who's Talking Now" than the amusing '60s toon series on which it's based...Parents who grew up watching "Underdog" may feel a twinge of nostalgia during the film's opening sequence, which affectionately revisits the series' modest, hand-drawn images...Directed by Frederik Du Chau...from a workmanlike script by Adam Rifkin and writing partners Joe Piscatella and Craig A. Williams, pic appears to have left most of the TV show's charming idiosyncrasies intact, such as Underdog's groan-worthy rhyming schemes...or his tendency to fly into buildings -- which, in this live-action incarnation, naturally results in a lot of broken glass. At no point does any of this come close to capturing the toon's droll, shambling spirit, which begs the question of why Disney chose to adapt this particular property for the bigscreen, beyond the studio's long-held tradition of doggy anthropomorphism.

Jack Mathews, New York Daily News ...made for the Saturday morning TV crowd, and parents who lead their tykes to this adventure aren't likely to leave disappointed.
Linda Cook, Quad City Times There's no need to fear. "Underdog" brings cheer.
