Talk about chewing the scenery
14 August 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

You Lucky Dog is the film where Kirk Cameron chews the scenery, literally. Something actors love to do in the figurative sense. Is this why he accepted this Disney film.

Cameron plays a dog therapist because as a kid he could read the mind of a canine. But he grew out of it and then began just faking it to pay the rent. One fine day he gets a rich man Hansford Rowe as a client who dies thereafter. Because he liked Cameron and his dog Lucky liked Cameron he left his estate to the dog with Cameron as his guardian with Chelsea Noble as the lawyer for the estate.

But he also has three worthless relatives who were cut out of the will, John DeLancie, Taylor Negron, and Christine Cavanaugh. They also have a lawyer whom jokes are made about in Granville Van Deusen.

Cameron has bonded with Lucky so well that not only does he read his mind, but when he gets excited Cameron starts reverting to the canine himself. It's that behavior that Van Deusen is hoping to get the will overturned in a trial right out of Mister Deeds Goes To Town. You know how that went.

You Lucky Dog gets over the top in many places, but it's still a decent enough film. I wonder why Kirk Cameron didn't continue with the Disney studio?
