Trivia

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 »

Some movies are for kids
1 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Apparently a lot of people like to watch little kid's movies and then complain because they aren't cinematic masterpieces. How ridiculous. This is a film that was made to entertain young kids,"

I couldn't agree more with one of the previous commenters that I quoted above. It is not the first time I've read reviews putting down a film because it is not Masterpiece Theatre (or Sesame Street). My little one had fun watching this. Sometimes that is all that matters.

It like teletubbies. Adults (most anyway) just don't get it, except for the producers of it. I can't tell you how excited my little girl was (at age 2) the first time she saw the teletubbies. She couldn't stop singing "teletubbie bye bye" in her broken English for hours that night.
