And guess what they name him. Spot. Written by
In the beginning of the movie, there are plenty of shots of the orange couch in Gordan's apartment. Later throughout the movie, several cushions can be seen wrapped in duct tape, this is due to the dog playing Agent 11 having torn up the cushions while the camera was off according to commentary.

When Gordon is trying to teach Spot how to be a dog, he throws a red ball that hits Spot and rolls away. In the next shot, Gordon has the ball again. See more »

This is a very simple plot that even young children can follow. This film breaks the rule for many actors in not working with young kids or animals. My family and I really enjoyed it. If you are looking for something deep and meaningful then look elsewhere but if you want slapstick then this is for you. There is a very funny scene involving Spot's output and the catastrophe's that happen to the kid's mum (the gorgeous Leslie Bibb) who is also the love object for David Arquette, are very amusing. I think that the actors in this film must have enjoyed playing their parts and didn't take themselves too seriously. Overall this is not a demanding movie but just some good light-hearted fun and you will be crying with laughter.
