No trouble loving this dog!
12 December 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Arthur is a boy of around 12 and he has a bad attitude. Mother asks too much of him, he thinks, and he is very selfish about loaning his things to friends. One day, a friend shows him an African amulet that is supposed to have magic powers. The next day, Arthur has turned into a dog! His mother screams when he shows his face and soon he is on the run. For awhile, he hooks up with a blind musician and his circle of friends. Will Arthur learn some valuable lessons about life as he walks around on all fours?

For dog lovers, the adorable pooh in this film will capture hearts very easily. He has many tricks and talents on full display. The young boy is winning and the blind musician very appealing as well. Most importantly, this is a character building movie that will subtly teach children about helping others and getting along with relatives. The only sadness for me was that the movie was short, about 45 minutes long. Recommended as a fine family film.
