Cute, Fun Movie, Good for Kids
21 May 2005 | by (Walnut Cove, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed For the Love of Benji. It was a cute, fun movie. A Good, Clean Family Film by Joe Camp. I actually liked this, the second Benji film, better than the first one. The plot here was pretty much laughable, but Benji movies aren't about that, they're about letting Benji charm. And that he does. A very good performance here by Benji. You'll laugh, but the dog's work is literally better than a Steven Segal performance I had the misfortune of seeing recently. Also, the film has nice music and lots of pretty Greece scenery. It may help to have seen the first Benji to familiarize yourself with some of the characters.

Check it out and Have a Doggone Good Time! (Sorry :)
