Silly, but intriguing
3 April 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Willie Joy buys a dog to make his girl happy; it's a greyhound whose owner doesn't want it because it's no good on the track anymore. He ends up being kicked out of his house and living with a punter in his train, who hatches an elaborate money making scheme. But in amongst this, Willie's dog gets well again and he starts training it for the races, and he somehow ends up mixed up with a whole lot of crooked gangsters and a dog doping ring!

Movie is definitely funny - don't miss a minute of the blind old lady who mistakes Willie for "Percy", and can't drive unless someone else is in the car to let her know when another car might be in her way.. 9/10 - watch it if you can!
