Bandit and the Saints of Dogwood


“Bandit and the Saints of Dogwood” is an adventure-filled comedy, full of fun and four-legged friends!

Lenna, her furry best friend Bandit, and a few other students plan to pull a prank on the principal the last day of school. The night of their dastardly deed, they encounter treasure map-toting thieves who are looking for gold buried beneath the school’s gym. When discovered, the treasure hunters get away and the principal blames the kids for the damage! As punishment, they are sent to summer camp, so Bandit and a few of his pals must help the kids escape and get back home.

Dove Review

There is nothing better than a good treasure hunt! But in this movie the bad guys, along with the principal, are hunting for treasure and acting like a bunch of bumbling fools. The kids are accused of breaking into the school, so they’re sent to a camp that looks like a prison…and then there is the hilarious escape.

The fun and comedy begins when the two groups, good and bad, try to get the truth to come out about the events that have transpired. The kids, along with two furry friends, discover the real plot and change the outcome for everyone…but along the way they also learn a lot about each other. This is a hilarious family movie that we are pleased to award the Dove Family Approved Seal for all ages.
