Pawsitively, this is a darling movie about a boy who cried woof!
23 October 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Eric Banks has a new problem. Whenever his nose starts itching, it is a signal that he is about to turn into a dog! His parents turn him out the first time they see him, not realizing that the darling black and white spotted dog is their son. As a dog, Eric has special abilities, however. He can write his name in the sand, press a doorbell or a street signal, and more. This drives a local lady crazy, for she tells her husband about the dog's unusual skills, only to a reaction of disbelief. Eric does confide in a close friend and the pal is there when Eric needs him, like the time Eric turns into a dog in the school locker room. Eric's teacher even thinks he's showing new creative writing ability for his essay on life as a dog. But, what is causing this transformation to occur? Could it be Eric's preschool sister is involved? This is a darling movie from England or Australia. The dog is the star, naturally, for he is talented and cute as a button. But, all of the human stars do a fine job, too, especially the woman playing the frazzled housewife who valiantly tries to make her husband listen to her about the dog's abilities. The script is clever and fun, the setting is a pleasure, and the production quite nice. If you come into contact with this film, do show it to your family. It is a lovely film that transports the viewers away from the real, and sometimes ugly, everyday world.
