Great funn and feel good family movie


Have you seen the Australian movie "Oddball"?   If you haven't here is your chance to grab a copy for all the family to watch.

Based on a true story, Oddball is a lovely dog whos gets into a bit of trouble around town but along the way his eccentric owner and his granddaughter find he has a special guard dog caring nature for penguins. Which with a little (amusing) training comes in handy just in time for some Fairy Penguins. Starring some great well known Aussie actors and introducing Kai as "Oddball"

"Oddball"  Giveaway and Review

 We took the kids to see "Oddball" at the cinema when it was released and thought it was a nice, funny and good story that all the family could enjoy but i was really surprised when it arrived on DVD to review the kids were so excited and we had to have "movie afternoon"  right there and then!  I hadn't realised how much they all had loved it.   Since then we've watched it a few times the kids just really love it, i don't mind watching it a few times, the scenery of Victoria is really nice, i do love Shane Jacobson's character and the fabulously Aussie things he says and does and who doesn't love a movie with penguins in it.

Oddball  movie review and giveaway


"Oddball" is a great story of the underdog becoming the hero, its funny and based on a true story and we think something the whole family can enjoy.

I haven't seen the movie yet but after reading your review and my mum admitting she owns it (it's not very often she buys a dvd), I cant wait to watch this wonderful dog looking after these cute penguins.

Oddball. Haven't seen it, but have heard great reviews on it. Love any dog/puppy stories as it reminds me of my dog which pass away. I also believe this story is also great for the children to think about people too, that we are all different and also become friends.

Because my 8 year old daughter has specifically requested to see it... I think she's growing up because it's the first time she's wanted to see a film that wasn't animated. Plus, she loves dogs.

I love to see those odd relationships between animals. The baby kittens being cared by dogs is just one example.

On Monday my three kids and I moved from country Victoria (near the penguins) to Brisbane. We'd love Oddball to remind us of "home".
