This pleasant little Aussie movie is based on a true story about an eccentric chicken farmer, who owns an unruly hound named Oddball. The movie is based on a true story. Foxes have begun swimming over to a small island penguin sanctuary and killing off the penguins. Oddball is such a wild child that he's banned from even going into the town. But our chicken farmer and his granddaughter discover that Oddball has a thing for penguins and with a little training they teach him to protect his penguin friends from the foxes.

It's a lovely story and even more heart-warming because it's a true story. Dog lovers will definitely love this movie. There's no cursing, no nudity and no gratuitous sex or violence. It's one of those movies that's just downright pleasant. 

Also Alan Tudyk who played Wash on Firefly makes an appearance in the movie. It's good to see him playing a nice guy again.

This one gets three pineapples from me for a very pleasant couple of hours and because I'm a bit of an oddball myself and like the title!

It's available free right now on Amazon Prime.
