A wonderfully traditional Disney remake of the Shaggy D.A. Great acting and cinematography as well as perfectly timed dialog. This is what we've come to expect from Disney, good clean family fun. Tim Allen plays his familiar role as the preoccupied but hilarious comedian, an Assistant DA (ADA) prosecuting a case against an animal rights activist who was caught damaging a research lab. The lab is performing illegal experiments of which the ADA becomes a part. I didn't notice any slow spots, it was nonstop action and humor as Allen deals with his job, marriage, and family while trying to understand and cope with his hairy predicaments. The special effects were minimal as well as goofy and fun.
