An ex-police/army dog (German Shepherd), named Rex inherits a fortune from an eccentric millionaire. But someone poisons him for his fortune, and he gets to go back to earth as a human detective to bring his killer to justice, and protect the girl who used to look after him. Written by
This is an especially enjoyable film for animal lovers, with lots of puns and sight gags involving a dog and horse who have been returned to earth from animal heaven, in human form, to track down the murderer of one of them. There is a fair amount of silliness, but ultimately this engaging comedy has a lot to say about human nature and the animal species that we are so attached to, particularly the canine and equine varieties. This is truly one for all ages, I would like to think that small (and older) children could sit still for this black & white gem, and enjoy it immensely.
