Magic Dog = Magic Fun
28 August 2004 | by (Kent, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Quite possibly one of the best magical animal movies ever made!!! With mischief and mayhem you be laughing and crying. One can only dream of creating such an epic film full of family fun. If only my deceased pet's ghost would come back to me and help me solve custody battles over my step dad and evil aunt. Frankly,I would be in heaven because I would be living the dream of being warped up in sticky situation full of hilarious antics and fabulous stereotypes of Italians and the obese. This "magic dog" will not only leave you wanting more but will magically win your heart over. One can only imagine what the sequels might hold in store for this dog and boy duo. I'm on pins and needles. I can only sum up this movie in one word.... WOWSOME.
