Storyline

Sequel to the 1959 movie about a boy who gets turned into a dog because of an ancient ring which some say is cursed. Today the boy, Wilby Daniels is a grown man, a lawyer and with a family. When they're robbed and Wilby tries to report it to police but only gets the run around, he decides to run for District Attorney or D.A. Because he believes that the current D.A. John Slade is not only doing his job but is on the take. When Daniels publicly denounces Slade, Slade decides to try and get something on him. And he might have found it when the ring that turned him into a dog when he was a boy is stolen from the museum and when the words inside are read, he turns into a dog. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Lame, but better than the first one
11 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Star Dean Jones and director Robert Stevenson collaborate on yet another goofy caper from the Disney machine. A belated sequel to the 1959 lump 'The Shaggy Dog', this is slightly better than the original thanks to a brisker pace and funnier gags, but it's thin stuff, and it's just like every other film popped from the same mould.

As before, the funniest moments come when the dog (or is it a man in a dog suit? It's impossible to tell) does such un-doglike things as ride a bike, drive a car, read a paper and abseil out of a window! It's silly nonsense, desperate and overlong. But there is some fun to be had along the way, and Jones and Suzanne Pleshette are fun to watch.
