Storyline

Preteen Moochie Daniels just wants a dog, but his dad, Daniel, is allergic to canines, like Bundles, the shabby sheep dog of neighbor Charlie Mulvihill who secretly trained his pet to help him steal jewels. Mooch's big brother Wilbert 'Wilby' is smart, shy and a promising inventor, but hopelessly clumsy when it comes to girls, and is jealous of his slick mate Trey who has no problems. Desperate Wilby resorts to a spell from the ring of Lucrezia Borgia (he accidentally got from dad's museum of curiosities), which magically turns him into Bundles and back at uncontrollable times. This is how he also knows that the diamond on loan in his father's museum is Charlie's next target, but who would believe his story? Written by KGF Vissers

Yes, let's remake that film. That's a good idea
11 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Part of Disney's '90s program to milk every film they ever made via sequel, prequel, remake and TV series, this is a cheesy rehash of the leaden 1959 film that already spawned two sequels for no good reason and was remade again a decade or so after this attempt. As if reacting against the original's boring flatness, this one is strenuously overplayed and slapped together in tacky, day-glo fashion by hack director Dennis Dugan. It's terrible.

The plot involves squeaky teen Scott Weinger reading an inscription on a cursed ring and intermittently switching places with his neighbour's sheepdog Bundles. What follows is an endless parade of complete and utter banality, aimlessly shuffling along as though the screenplay was mislaid on the first day of shooting. 'Oh man! This is really weird!' understates our transformed hero before he uncovers plans to heist a jewel from a museum. Can the dog foil the thief's plans? How can Weinger tell anyone what's happening when he overheard the plans while in the form of a dog? Will it occur to him not to mention that he was in the form of a dog? Will the curse be lifted? Will our hero ever pluck up the courage to make a left hand turn in his car? And last but not least, who the hell cares?

A typo in the opening credits sets the bar for the movie's quality control. There are plenty of scenes similar to those in the other films, in which Bundles brushes his teeth, drives a car and takes a shower, but thanks to Dugan's relentless ineptitude none of this is remotely funny. There are lines like 'What would she think if she knew her dear old uncle Charlie was really an international jewel thief?' and 'Okay, listen up, Bundles. I want that diamond!' The actors all mug and wave their arms around desperately as if the camera was a mile away. The story is signposted so heavily that the movie and I could have gone our separate ways after ten minutes with no surprises lost.

In other words, this is a load of rubbish.
