Storyline

Becky wants to become an actress. After an audition for a dog food ad she has best chances to get the part - but the day after her dog Petey becomes very ill. She has to come up with $700 until 5 pm for the operation - else Petey will be put to death! Lacking only $70, she takes a job as messenger. She needs only one delivery, but her car breaks down and bad luck delays her again, and again, and again... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Good clean fun!
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My family and I love this movie! The all-star cast (Cindy Williams, Tony Randall, Charlotte Rae...) performed excellently and without skipping a beat. My hat is off to Ms. Williams for throwing herself (really) into the physical comedy, as she did so often in "Laverne and Shirley". (The scene in which she rides down the street on the dumpster is especially memorable. Ha, ha!) While this is just one of my favorite movies, it stands out from most in that it is totally clean. There was a refreshing absence of foul language, offensive gestures/innuendo, and violence. It would be so refreshing if the creators of today's "family comedies" would follow suit. I do hope "Save the Dog" will be available on DVD someday...
