First video clip shown...

....huh. So they actually made it. Actually gonna release it. Jason Lee! Did you need the money?

AICN claims that "religious people will get SO mad over the film's tagline, HA-HA!"

...um. *shrug* Barely registers with me.

The Superman Returns-esque narration was far better than the actual film scene shown. [Razz]

That's just sad. If they had to do this, they should have CGI'd an Underdog who looked right.

I'm still waiting for them to do Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley with a real penguin and real walrus.

I have not doubt it will offend SOMEBODY but that is more their fault then the taglines. I predict extreme floppage on this movies part, but hey it might surprise me. The funniest material to be had by the underdog IMO was found on Robot Chicken.

Warning mild censored profanity,

Start at 7:40 and it ends at 8:20

I am not responsible for anything you watch before or after the clip I specified [Big Grin] but Robot Chicken has been known to put me in stitches though at times it disgusts me, the entire episode brings on both extremes for me.

Yeah, I was disappointed when I saw it was a real dog on the poster, and I'm still disappointed seeing the real dog in action. But *shrugs* what are you going to do?

I'm actually excited about this. It's one of my favorite toons from when I was a kid. I don't if it's live-action, so long as they don't mess with the theme song and he continues to talk in rhyme.

quote:
Speed of lightning, roar of thunder,
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog, Underdog!
When in this world the headlines read
Of those whose hearts are filled with greed
And rob and steal from those in need.
To right this wrong with blinding speed goes
Underdog!
Underdog!
Underdog!
Underdog!
Speed of lightning, power of thunder,
All the world cries out for Under
Underdog, Underdog!
