Storyline

Archie is a rich and utterly despicable practical joker. He is one week away from playing a CD-ROM that will change the lives of his trusted manager, Dexter, and other employees forever when he is suddenly involved in a deadly accident. He quickly discovers that instead of entering Heaven's pearly gates, he is being sent back to Earth to clean up the mess he created. Since he has an absolute dislike for animals, especially dogs, it is quickly decided that he should be returned to Earth as a dog and not just any dog, mind you, but a fluffy white Pomeranian named Quigley. Sweeney, an "observing" guardian angel, will accompany him. He is the only person who will actually see the real Archie. Everyone else sees Quigley. He's given two very different assignments. One is to retrieve the CD-ROM before it's played and the other is to help his brother, Woodward, and his family, whom he hasn't talked to in years. Quigley (a very confused Archie) has much to do and little time to do it. Written by Anonymous

This film has some beautiful messages, a great cast and a darling, darling dog but is not perfect, by any means
12 January 2010 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Archie (Gary Busey) is a ruthless businessman who gets what he wants, hook or by crook. Having no personal life, he concentrates on "getting" way ahead of the competition. Curiously, he also has a strong dislike for dogs. One day, as he is driving, he spots a dog in the road and swerves to miss the canine. Both of them, however, end up dead. Now Archie appears before the pearly gates, where the angels see no reason whatsoever to let Archie in. But Sweeney (Oz Perkins) suggests a possible route to redemption. If they send Archie back to earth as the little dog, and he can make two huge gestures of goodwill, he can enter heaven. It's agreed. Archie returns to earth as a beautiful white Pomeranian named Quigley, with Sweeney along as a guide. The former businessman is ordered to set things right for employees at his firm and to make amends with his long-forgotten brother, Woodward (Christopher Atkins) and his family, a wife and two kids. But, how can he do this, all as a tiny dog? We'll see! Actually, this family-friendly film has some very nice messages and a truly great cast. Busey is too funny as the canine, for we see him talking to Sweeney as himself, only in a "begging" pose. Cute. Atkins, Perkins, and all of the rest are very, very fine as well. The production has also been made with great care, for it has lovely camera work, costumes, sets and scenery. The main thing it lacks is a sure-fire script and good direction/editing. For example, most kids will be lost in the first half of the film, for Archie's trip back to his former firm is a bit fuzzy. Why is he looking for a "disc" and how can he make amends with his former employees. Once, however, the story goes in the direction of the family, the pace picks up and children will be entertained. Therefore, it is too bad that there can't be a few "teaser" scenes, in the beginning, about the family and have the corporate scenes worked into the middle. Nevertheless, if you love dogs, family films, and movies with good morality lessons, pick up Quigley. In truth, few folks will not adore this darling little dog's abundant talents and tricks.
