Saw a private screening of it.
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Shaggy Dog actually was not as bad of a movie as I had supposed it would be. It was mildly entertaining, it keeps your attention. It is not very realistic, for example when Tim Allen's character is chasing the cat and rams the old lady and she goes flying and hits a tree. The scenes after becoming the "shaggy dog" when he turns back to human, it is all very funny through out there until the end of the movie. Tim Allen's performance is quite original in this one, it also was better than I hoped.

The first twenty minutes of the movie are very slow and boring, the movie rises up after he gets bitten and turns into the dog. Overall it was not such a terrible movie. It is a great movie to watch with your kids or family and friends. Go and enjoy the Shaggy Dog Overall 6 1/2 out of 10.
