Storyline

When Bingo, a runaway circus dog who leaves the big top, saves the life of Chuckie, a young boy who is having trouble fitting in with his pals. The two quickly become best friends-skateboarding, playing pinball, and doing math homework together. But Chuckie's parents discover the stowaway pooch, and make no bones about the fact that Bingo will not accompany them on thier cross-country move. What follows next is a heart warming 1000 mile adventure of puppy love and loyalty as Bingo and Chuckie encounter nutty charcters and hilarious situations in thier quest to be reunited. Dog catchers, kidnappers, hospitalsmand even prison cant keep the two misfits apart! Written by Uber Minion

Trivia

A scene with Bunny shown in the trailer did not make it into the theatrical release. It shows her throwing raw hamburger onto a window which Bingo is looking out with her saying, "raw meat". The context for this joke is unclear. See more »

Goofs

When Chuckie sees Bingo for the first time, he has not yet put his jeans on when he walks past the hanging clothes to meet him. In the next shot, he is wearing the jeans but not his shirt. The following shot, his shirt is suddenly on, too. See more »

One of my all time favorites
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've loved this movie since I was 6 years old. I found it pretty amazing that one dog walked a long journey from Colorado to Wisconsin and did not get hit by a car. He did have several mishaps along the way of finding Chuckie and his family. The saddest part of the movie is in the scene when Bingo has to jump through that ring of fire during the circus show and seeing the fire reminds him of when he was a puppy and the pet store he was born in caught on fire and his mother was lying halfway out of a cage dead. And the next scene in Bingo's recollection where he was sitting in front of his mother's memorial fountain that read: "TAFFY- Beloved Mother" made it even more sad.I almost cried.

The rest of the movie was very funny. I thought it was really cool during that hospital scene in the last 10 minutes of the film where every single person bingo met on his journey came together to visit him and wish him well. I'm 20 and I STILL love this movie
