In this charming and magical adventure, young Bobby Spade and his faithful Dog, Ozzy, stumble upon an ancient wizard’s mystical book of spells. The once shy boy and lovable canine are unprepared for what comes next as the two find themselves suddenly graced with extraordinary magical powers. Through this amazing miracle, Bobby is now inspired to become the world’s most famous magician, accompanied by he enchanted talking dog Ozzy who inherits universal wisdom and is eager to share it.

Dove Review

“The Amazing Wizard of Paws” is a story full of fantasy magic and tricks done by a wizard. Bobby has some issues and his dog Ozzy helps him get through his anxieties, but little does he know that this dog is very special and will help him through a lot more.

 

It is a mystical story that brings out some wonderful lessons too. Issues like those feelings kids have when they are being bullied; how unfair it is to treat someone with a service dog badly; and how doing a good deed sometimes can change the future for others. This film is entertaining for the entire family and especially those that want to take a comical look at magical tricks.

 

The Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages is awarded to this fantasy film.

Movie Review

The Amazing Wizard of Paws

 

Christopher Gildemeister

Release Date: 3/11/2015

 

 

 

MPAA Rating: NA :   Description: See below

 

Starring: Will Spencer, Paula Devicq, Cole Michaels, Jack Maxwell, Jacob Witkin

When Bobby Spade’s father is killed in a car accident, the boy becomes despondent. His therapist suggests Bobby adopt a service dog named Ozzie, to help him with his agoraphobia. When Bobby does, things start getting…strange. Ozzie starts talking. Then Bobby finds a magical book, an ancient wizard appears to tell him he is “the Chosen One,” and an evil wizard begins pursuing him – just as Bobby’s budding career as an amateur magician takes off in unbelievable ways. Soon, Bobby is enmeshed in a world he never could have imagined, while still trying to balance the life of an average schoolboy with the world of wizards.

 

The Amazing Wizard of Paws has no content to concern parents. The death of Bobby’s father is implied and discussed, but not seen. Bobby is bullied by other boys at school (and takes satisfaction in using his magic to get back at them in harmless ways). Bobby also has several magical battles with the evil wizard, involving lightning bolts, balls of light, and the like. He is also briefly chased by an axe-wielding empty suit of armor.

 

From the author of Filmmaking for Dummies and creator of previous Seal of Approval –winner First Dog, The Amazing Wizard of Paws is a clean, fun, family-friendly film enjoyable especially to young audiences.

 

The PTC is proud to be working with this independent filmmaker, who has consistently shown himself devoted to creating family films; and we are pleased to award The Amazing Wizard of Paws with thePTC Seal of Approval®.

 

The PTC recommends this DVD for viewers over age five.

KIDS FIRST!® Adult Jurors say - I have to admit that I wasn't too sure about this movie in the beginning. It seemed a tad dark and sad. It does touch on some emotional issues of loss, being bullied and social anxiety. But, this quickly turns into a mystical and magical movie that is very entertaining. There is a whole theme of bad magic and good magic and, although good magic is much more powerful, something more meaningful is portrayed in the film. It shows how real magic comes from within oneself and, in this case, a young boy named Bobby who has to deal with the loss of his dad at a young age. With the help of a magical dog, Ozzie, who becomes his best friend, he learns to deal with social anxiety and learns that magic doesn't solve problems.

 

This films had me on the edge of my seat at times and I enjoyed the happy twist at the end. The actors portray the characters really well. I would rate this film 5 out of 5 stars. It is entertaining and is quite magical. It is much more than just a bad vs. good kind of movie.
KIDS FIRST!® Kid Jurors say - This movie is a really good movie and one you just want to share with everyone. I think a lot of people would like it because it is family friendly and really cute.

 

This story is about a boy named Bobby who has a dream of becoming the greatest magician ever. He got a dog named Ozzie when he was young because he was so depressed after his dad died and he needed Ozzie to come with him everywhere he went. One day, he went to a store to buy a magic book with $20 dollars that he found. He buys a magic book that gives him powers to do a lot of things.

 

The main characters in this movie are Bobby, Ozzie, his mom and two wizards. My favorite character is Ozzie because, he may be a dog but, he is actually a magic dog. He has lived for centuries and can talk. He can also do a few magic powers. He is also a really cool dog.

My favorite part in this movie is when Bobby is at a school talent show and he and Ozzie do a lot of cool magic tricks. They make Ozzie disappear and do a lot more tricks. He does some elusions and the dog helps him with a few things. One time, Ozzie goes into one box and comes out another. It is really cool and a quick hint he wasn't teleporting.

 

I recommend this movie for ages 5 to 12 because all of the magic tricks are cool.
