Oddball is a dog. A really sweet dog. But he’s a dog who gets into a lot of trouble. Until he finds his calling…penguins. “Oddball” is a sweet, loving, and happily ending story for the whole family. The cast of characters, both human and not, are as different from each other as they can be. But somehow they all come together to show that persistence, love, and instincts can solve the toughest problems. We promise you will adore this movie!
