Benji is an evil beast
10 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gore Vidal's "For The Love Of Benji" takes us on what should have been an energetic romp through the eyes of a lovable cocker spaniel with the heart of a freeze-dried artichoke. Instead, what we get is a thinly-disguised rant on the oppression visited upon our four-legged friends by corrupt politicians, corporate CEOs, and alien sex predators. PETA take note! Not since "Myra Breckenridge" has Raquel Welch been so radiant and yet so absent from the screen. Interestingly enough, Tom Cruise does NOT appear in this film either. The film score, however, is reminiscent of "Ears Wide Shut", the film Kubrick would have made if cameras had been unavailable.
