Storyline

Fran Garrison's all in a tizzy because her prize Dachshund, Danke, is having pups, and she has hopes of one of the pups becoming a champion. But at the vet's, her husband Mark is talked into letting Danke wet nurse a Great Dane pup that's been abandoned by his mother. And Mark wants to keep the Great Dane. But Brutus has this problem: he thinks he's a dachshund and he's too big to be a lapdog. But when Fran ridicules Brutus one too many times, Jim's got a plan to prove to everyone (and Fran) that a great Dane can be far more than just an ugly dachshund. Written by Kathy Li

Has the inevitable "awww" factor...otherwise, a plodding and predictable Disney outing
23 September 2013 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Advertising designer and his wife are at odds over their canine brood: her four Dachshunds to his friendly, clumsy Great Dane. Noisy comedy from Walt Disney buttresses the endless husband-and-wife arguments with four-legged slapstick chaos and sight gags, some of which will no doubt please the impressionable. Slick, empty nonsense with unconvincing marrieds at the center; Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette, sleeping in separate twin beds, lovingly refer to each other as "Dear" and "Darling" without any genuine affection between the them. Everything is cued-up in advance, processed for infantile reaction, and then cleared away without anything to remember the next day. *1/2 from ****
