The first I heard of the movie Oddball was when my boys brought home a note from school requesting that they go on an excursion to the cinema to watch it. It wasn’t exactly sure what it was about but after a quick Google search, I wanted to see it as well.
In all honesty I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. It had every aspect of a good movie; love, a hero, fluffy animals, the underdog, the twist and much more. So what is Oddball about? Well it is basically about a penguin sanctuary that is loosing penguins by the day (technically night) to the claws of foxes. In an effort to save the penguins and Swampy Marsh’s dog Oddball; they take a high stakes risk and leave Oddball on the island. To their delight and the surprise of Swampy’s daughter, Oddball saves the day. He had found his true calling!
This is a wonderfully heart-touching film that is perfect for the whole family.
Happy Feet meets Red Dog in this hilarious and heart-warming true story about a mischievous dog who defies the odds and saves a penguin colony from extinction.He’s lovable, loyal and quite the handful. In fact, Oddball the dog has a reputation in his local community as a bit of a troublemaker. So when his eccentric owner, Swampy Marsh, suggests Oddball could be trained to protect the endangered penguins on the nearby island from foxes, the authorities think he’s barking mad. But Swampy always likes to bite off more than he can chew. With the help of his beloved granddaughter, the feisty farmer sets out to prove that man’s-best-friend can be a penguin’s best friend too.
