In The Dog Who Saved Summer, we see the return of the lovable and heroic Labrador Retriever Zeus, who first captured audiences' hearts in the 2009 film The Dog Who Saved Christmas. Zeus is once again voiced by Mario Lopez, whose playful and child-friendly tone perfectly captures the spirit of the film. In the movie, Zeus's family is in disarray. They've moved from their old home in California to a new house in Connecticut, and their finances are stretched thin. To make matters worse, summer vacation has just started, and there's no money for any fun activities. The kids are stuck at home, and soon their boredom sets in.
One day, Mrs. Bannister (played by Elisa Donovan) comes over to ask the family to take care of her aunt's house for the summer. She mentions that the aunt has a dog and that it would be easier if the Bannister family could take care of him too. The Bannister family agrees, and soon Zeus has a new friend - a poodle named Bella.
Zeus and Bella have some hilarious moments together, including a disastrous afternoon at the dog park. But they also have to deal with a group of mean dogs led by a Doberman named Spike. Spike and his gang have been terrorizing the other dogs in the neighborhood, and Zeus and Bella must find a way to stop them.
Meanwhile, the Bannister children are still bored and are trying to come up with a way to make some money. Fortunately, their neighbor Ted (played by Dean Cain) has just opened a new water park, and he needs some help with advertising. The kids come up with a plan to make a commercial for the park that features Zeus and Bella as the stars.
As the summer progresses, Zeus and Bella continue to deal with Spike and his gang, and the kids work hard on their commercial. But they also have to deal with some unexpected challenges. One day, Bella goes missing, and Zeus goes on a wild adventure to find her. And when the commercial doesn't go as planned, the kids have to find a way to make things right.
The Dog Who Saved Summer is a fun and lighthearted family film that will appeal to children and dog lovers alike. The movie has some hilarious moments, thanks to Zeus's antics and the chemistry between the dogs. But it also has some heartwarming moments that will tug at your heartstrings.
Dean Cain and Elisa Donovan deliver solid performances as the Bannister parents, and Gary Valentine provides some comic relief as Uncle Joe. But it's really the dogs that steal the show. Zeus and Bella are both adorable and lovable, and their friendship is charming and heartwarming.
The film has a positive message about the importance of family, friendship, and kindness. It also encourages kids to think creatively and outside the box when it comes to problem-solving. And of course, it celebrates the joy and love that dogs bring into our lives.
Overall, The Dog Who Saved Summer is a family-friendly film that will provide plenty of laughs and heartwarming moments.
