The first movie about the famous golden mutt. Benji is a stray who has nonetheless worked his way into the hearts of a number of the townspeople, who give him food and attention whenever he stops by. His particular favorites are a pair of children who feed and play with him against the wishes of their parents. When the children are kidnapped, however, the parents and the police are at a loss to find them. Only Benji can track them down, but will he be in time? If he can save the day, he may just find the permanent home he's been longing for. Written by

Is Benji here yet?
Yes, Benji's here yet.
[calling out the kitchen door]
Cindy, he's here.
Well he won't be here for long if you don't stop that yelling. You know what happens if your father walks in.
I don't think Dad understands about us and Benji.
I don't think you understand what an understatement you just made.
What's understatement mean?
It means don't yell down the hall.
[entering the kitchen]
Don't yell in the kitchen, do you want your father in here?

I first saw "Benji" when I was eight years old; during its original release, and after nearly 25 years it is still one of the finest, independently-produced family films ever made. Told entirely from the eyes of a dog, it mixes humor, suspense, and heart-tugging emotion. The dog, Benji, is still one of the finest animal actors ever to appear on screen. He conveys emotion, like no other animal on film ever had before, or has since. Although this is mainly a film for families to enjoy, it would surprise me if any adult couldn't be moved by its sentiment.
