A good laugh for the entire family
Robin Williams and John Travolta team up in this funny comedy about two single guys who are going to take care of two six year old twins. Of course neither of them has a clue what they are doing and in the process of figuring it out we end up with this hilarious comedy.
Both Williams and Travolta are great in this movie and work well together.
Additional Cast Members Include: Bernie Mac, Conner Rayburn, Dax Shepard, Ella Bleu Travolta (John Travolta's daughter), Justin Long, Lori Loughlin, Luis Guzmán, Matt Dillon, and Rita Wilson
This is one for the entire family, and it is very funny.

OLD DOGS movie review
Want a good story and have some really great laughs? Watch this movie and you'll see how talented actors such as Robin Williams, John Travolta, Seth Green, Matt Damon, and Justin Long all do EXCELLENT jobs with their characters. Bernie Mac's final performance is a tribute in this movie and will be remembered well by all viewers -- great work Bernie! Female actors Kelly Preston & Elle Bleu Travolta add their expertise to this film making it a must-see movie for the whole family, young and old!
The plotline can be found online so I won't rehash it here. Suffice it to say, this 88 minute movie is ROTFLMAO comedy throughout the film. I laughed so hard I was crying it was that funny!! Robin Williams natural comedic style comes through this dramatic picture, so it's not all serious nor is it all comedy. The placement of the comedy is right. The placement of the drama is right. The directing and cinematography throughout was just perfect.
The reactions by the characters to various situations reel you in and you either feel sad for the character or you laugh with & at them for what they're experiencing. What would YOU do if you were caught in a gorilla cage?? I'd scream like a freak just like Seth Green does! And Matt Dillon and Justin Long are fantastic in the Scouting scenes -- "My beef is not with you old woman..."
Watch this show! It's 88 minutes of pure fun. If you don't laugh or enjoy this movie, check your pulse! If you're not one to normal buy movies, you'll want to buy this one for your collection; it is DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!
Very funny movie!
This was very funny, it was fun to see John Travolta and Robin Williams playing middle-aged men with all the aches and pains that come along with that age. Real slapstick comedy...
One of the best clean hidden comedies made in 2010!
This is one of the most funniest movies I have seen in a long time. If you don't laugh at least every 5 mintues in this movie something is wrong. The situations are one after the other and the story line about 2 men, their friendship and a dog is priceless. In my opinion if you want to laugh - watch this movie! Very reminesent of the old slapstick type comedies but which takes place today! A quality movie with no swearing, sex or intended blood violence. A movie to any age to watch - just good clean fun!
This is a wonderful funny movie, I love both Robin Williams and John Travolta. I would recommend this movie for a very good laugh. I am amazed at John, he can truly play and part that he is given. Same goes for Robin, long time fan of his. Enjoy
