Talented pets and fearless firefighters are both Hollywood staples, and this action comedy brings elements from both genres together in one child-friendly package. Canine action-movie star "Rexxx" falls from a plane and lands (literally) in the middle of a blaze. He's rescued by small-town fire chief Connor Fahey (Bruce Greenwood), who gives his stroppy son Shane (Josh Hutcherson) the task of finding the pooch's real owner. Attitude soon gives way to admiration, however, as Shane realises the dog has genuine stunt skills - but it's not long before Hollywood wants its star performer back. With subplots about arson and father/son bonding, this is corny but competent entertainment for younger viewers.

Plot Summary
