A great bit of fun
26 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

I came across this movie completely unintentionally one Sunday afternoon last month, while flipping channels, and saw Cameron on his hands and knees, panting and growling with a manic look in his eye. It threw me, and after I got over the initial cringe of watching a grown man act like an excited dog, I settled in and had a fun hour. He actually does a passable job of "channeling" a dog, and I can definitely imagine his kids giggling and laughing at the sight of him...which is worth the possible indignities. :) There was one scene, in particular, that I was hooting at, however. At one point, the lawyer that Noble (his real-life wife), is playing, rubs the dog's stomach while the man is "channeling" the animal. Cameron's reaction is priceless; it's not just the dog reacting, it's the man, too. Had a great time. It's not deep, and it's rather silly, but it's a lot of fun.
