"Humanimals" are "King"
10 September 1999 | by (Hedon, England) – See all my reviews

This movie is great. My wife and I adore it. There is no violence. It is a comedy that can be watched over and over. This is a true classic.

I wish it was available on video or DVD (yes it is that good). Basic story:- King the German Shepherd is left a fortune when his owner dies, someone poisons him and he returns to earth as a PI called Rex Shepherd to bring his killer to justice. I won't tell you any more as it will spoil it for you. Bye........
