To save the day here comes Underdog a 1970s Saturday morning cartoon transformed to glorious semi-CGI animated life its a talking animal live-action film--a la BABE--with wisecracks aplenty. Voiced by Jason Lee Underdog is the joke of the K-9 police force after his weakness for ham disrupts a public ceremony. Dejectedly he lets himself get abducted for an animal experiment by a mad scientist Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage). He escapes doused in experimental chemicals to become a dog with 80 times his normal strength. Jim Belushi embodies the sad-sack security guard at the laboratory who finds Underdog and takes him home as a playmate for his alienated tweener son (Alex Neuberger). The fact that chaos follows will come as no surprise but what may is the genial tone the film maintains throughout.
