Sk8 Dawg is a rollicking good time! The skateboarding moves are fun to watch, and Buddy, the talking dog, is a hoot to listen to! The Schooners own a business, Modern Skate, and Dad has always been pre-occupied with work and with skating with his daughter, Tommy’s older sister, Sally. She’s so good that Sally is in London at the start of the film, in a skating competition. She and her dad always had a love for skateboarding in common. Tommy is skating now and hopes to gain his father’s attention. When Tommy literally runs into a bully named Frankie and accidentally knocks him down, Frankie challenges him to a skating competition “on Friday,” so Tommy will have to learn some moves—and quickly!
Tommy learns that his talent and abilities might lie elsewhere. Just what might that be? And how does he fare in the head-on competition with Frankie? You will have to view this fast-paced and fun movie to see. Rest assured that Buddy will keep you laughing along the way. His desire for meat gets him in trouble more than once in the movie.
The Dove Take: This movie is fun with a capital F. It showcases some great skateboarding moves and shows how a modern family deals with the fast pace of life. The family cares for one another and supports one another, although they have to remind themselves to do so in their fast-paced lives. We are pleased to award the film our Dove-Approved All Ages Seal. Watching this one is bound to bring a smile—or a chuckle—to your day.
