Sweet and savvy talking golden retriever, Bailey, is one doggone lucky pooch when his devoted owner, Constance Pennington, leaves him her entire billion-dollar fortune. Bailey is lucky, that is, until he becomes the target of an elaborately-designed dognap scheme hatched by Constance's nasty nephew Caspar and his money-hungry wife Dolores. The despicable duo's wicked plan is to ultimately gain custody of the canine so they can get their greedy paws on his inheritance. Unfortunately for them, there's a thing or two they don't know about Bailey. Not only does he have great street smarts, he has great pals too. Bailey's loyal guardian Ted, kind-hearted animal advocate Marge, her daughter Sam, and a clever border collie named Tessa set out on a hilarious madcap adventure to free their four-legged friend and put the nasty dognappers out of business-for good!

I only rented this movie, because it was Dean Cain's latest, and it was 99 cent rental day at work (I didn't wish to waste a Netflix rental on it). I didn't expect much, of course...and the movie turned out as I expected...an incredibly silly kids movie with an absurd plot, but fun and charming none the less. I was mostly surprised by the movie's great cast...Tim Curry, Jennifer Tilly, Jon Lovitz, Laurie Holden, and of course, Dean Cain; not the type of cast you'd expect from a straight-to-DVD kids movie about a talking dog (well, OK, maybe you WOULD expect Dean Cain to show up in random straight-to-videos, since that's ALL he shows up in, lol). They all performed just as well as you'd expect, and I think perhaps that set the movie apart from other movies like this one. The dog was adorable, and amusing...voiced perfectly by Jon Lovitz, and everyone seemed to be having fun, so what more could you ask?
Worth the time, and the 99 cents...and I think kids will like it.
