2007
Based on the popular 60s cartoon series, this live-action feature takes certain liberties, adding a silly back story to explain the title canine's superpowers. The TV show was mildly subversive, with humor that children and adults could enjoy on different levels, but the movie strives for a blander, family-oriented middle ground. As the voice of Underdog, Jason Lee pales in comparison to Wally Cox; Peter Dinklage is properly menacing as the evil Simon Barsinister; and Patrick Warburton, while forced to perform some lowbrow physical comedy, is the funniest thing in the movie as Barsinister's thuggish henchman, Cad. Frederik Du Chau (Racing Stripes) directed; with James Belushi and Alex Neuberger.
