It may not set the box office on fire, but this canine caper is more agreeable than your average underdog tale.

To me it doesn't mesh well.

I saw part of it, and it actually was not that bad.

Firehouse Dog is a surprisingly charming little family movie. Josh Hutcherson and Bruce Greenwood are good as father and son and everything the dog does is… More
