Movie Summary

Director:
Frederik Du Chau
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG
Underdog is really Shoeshine, a mild-mannered pooch who's been imbued with superpowers following a lab accident. But his teenage owner (Alex Neuberger) is the only person who shares the indestructible hound's secret. James Belushi and Patrick Warburton also star in this big-screen adaptation of the popular animated series from the 1960s and '70s that spawned the phrase, "There's no need to fear! Underdog is here!"
