RUSSELL MADNESS tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his pet store, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather’s pro wrestling arena. That’s when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar. But when a dishonest promoter double-crosses the Ferraros, Russell will face his biggest challenge and discover that the strongest tag team is family. RUSSELL MADNESS is rated ‘PG’ by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).
The movie is adorable, funny and action packed as Russell is a wrestler who gets in the ring as a pro wrestler thanks to his monkey manager Hunk.
The story starts with The Ferraros moving into Dad, Nate's family's old business. Back in the day his family ran a successful Pro-Wrestling Arena. The family pet Hank has been hanging around the building for years (?) Do they live that long? Anyway...such a cutie and after watching Night At The Museum we were excited for another starring monkey and all swear Hank is played by Crystal the star of NATM movies. I really need to Google that. If so, she has been very busy!
Russell is an adorable pouch who ends up being the last of his litter in a pet shop. Russell has a problem and pees on everyone. My daughter and I both said "why does everyone hold him like that!" BUT anyway, I guess if that didn't happen Russell would have been adopted and never had the opportunity to be a big wrestling star.
