Review C-

Firehouse Dog is the story of Rexxx, a superstar Hollywood pooch who falls out of an airplane into a truck filled with tomatoes, bonds with a motherless boy and becomes the mascot of a misfit bunch of firefighters who desperately need a hero.

Cute dog? Check. Troubled kid? Check. Jocular supporting cast? Check. Opportunities for great peril? Check. Silliness? Check.
