So Disjointed Your Joints Will Ache From Watching
2 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

A real dog of a "dog and pony" show. Jay Thomas and Shelley Long -- funny as they can be -- come off as two sleazy cats trying to fight their way out of a paper bag of a movie. If it appears that most of the primary actors are upset over the kidnapping of their favorite pets, it is more likely they are grimacing in pain and embarrassment from signing on to this film. After release it was re-titled as "Barclay's Big Adventure". Barclay just happens to be the 8-year-old boy in the family of five who is most attached to the family's Shetland pony(Ragtime) and collie(Taylor). When the pets are stolen - get this - an army of thirty FBI agents are called in and confusion reigns. Barclay gets about ten minutes screen time. Three-year-olds will love this film.
