Browning is a PI with a bad cold, who's sent to investigate a case by a mysterious client.He stumbles across the body of a young woman and is stabbed to death, and when he wakes up in heaven, they tell him he's "marginal material," and they can only decide on his final destination through one last assignment: to go back and solve his own murder. As a dog. A cute fluffy little dog (Benji). Undaunted, Browning begins to investigate the case as best he can around his canine disabilities (dialing the phone presents a special challenge) to solve the murders, save the girl, and see justice done.

Benji couldn't have been listening to the woman at the gallery who mentioned the Senator "swooshing down the slopes" since it was established he was tied up in the car at the time. It is possible that he heard it if Jackie taped it, but it was never revealed that she was recording at the time. See more »
I'm a big fan of Chevy Chase and back in 1974, I actually liked the first Benji movie.
But then again, I was only 11 at the time. When I saw it again as an adult, I realized it was a super sappy sentimental anomaly for dog lovers, with bad acting, apparently filmed through whatever filter they used for Doris Day movies. Not sure if it was to hide the dog's dingle berries, or the fact that the housekeeper looked like Hell ran a demonic wrinkle tractor over her face. But regardless, I liked it as a kid.
I've also always like Chevy Chase since the 70's, his work on SNL and almost all of his movies... except this one.
So how can they combine 2 things I like and come up with something as repulsive as this movie? It's like mixing milk and mustard. Separately, they are good, but when combined they are used to induce vomiting. This movie has the same effect, 2 worlds that just shouldn't have been combined.
