Storyline

When a casino owning dog named Charlie is murdered by his rival Carface, he finds himself in Heaven basically by default since all dogs go to heaven. However, since he wants to get back at his killer, he cons his way back to the living with the warning that doing that damns him to Hell. Once back, he teams with his old partner, Itchy to prep his retaliation. He also stumbles on to an orphan girl who can talk to the animals, thus allowing him to get the inside info on the races to ensure his wins to finance his plans. However, all the while, he is still haunted by nightmares on what's waiting for him on the other side unless he can prove that he is worthy of Heaven again.

Trivia

The book on Charlie's life reads Charlie B. Barkin September 13, 1937 mostly German Shepard but also part collie, part great Dane and part retriever in short a bit of a mutt. the rest is difficult to make out but may mention how he doesn't have much goodness or loyalty, tends to be on the greedy side, but a small section does mention strong love.possibly foreshadowing his change from bad to good.

Goofs

At the very end, when Annabelle (the pink whippet) is taking Charlie back up to Heaven, Charlie has his blue pocket-watch again (the one he lost in the lake) and their lips are moving yet, they aren't talking. This is because they re-used the beginning of the "Let Me Be Surprised" scene. See more »

Brings back memories
9 April 2004 | by (Trenton, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

All dogs go to Heaven is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I first saw it when I was like 3. Now I'm 12 and I rented it, it makes me think of things and it brings back so many memories, those were "the days". I love the music, I love when Charlie is arriving in Heaven, I love the song "Let me be surprised". I love how Charlie looks and his voice, Bert Reynolds could only play Charlie's voice this great. I love this movie, the 1st one is the best one because it's so original and great. It really does bring back memories that no one can describe, not even me. If only I could go back to those days. I love the characters. If this is the way the memories come back when I'm 12 imagine how I'll feel when I'm like 19, I hope I'll be able to watch this when I'm older. When I first seen this I never knew that I would really look back on it and feel this way , I hope it will be available to watch. I'm so happy that this movie was made and the amazing idea came to mind and heart. On a scale from 1-10 I'd give it a perfect 10. It's an amazing movie. It's so hard to explain the feeling, when I get older and if I have kids, I hope they can experience this feeling.
