Not brilliant, but very funny, The Shaggy Dog shall keep you entertained!
25 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It isn't going to win any Oscars, but that is not what this film was made for. It was made to satisfy the nippers and the dog-loving medium

  • and it does that with massive success. This film is hilarious in


parts - especially the court scenes, and the chase between Tim Allen and the cat was brilliantly done, and perhaps the best scene in the film. I don't see how this film did so bad - but it is good to see that this has come out of the bottom 100 - that is for films with no heart. The Shaggy Dog does have heart, as well as character, hilarity, relatively good CGI and a sharp script. Adults will love it too, if they are kids at heart. The Shaggy Dog is massively predictable and has no particularly memorable one-liners or emotional scenes, but it is fun, and did relatively well at the box office. After all, it is made for kids, and I don't see why any kid wouldn't enjoy it.

The Shaggy Dog is no masterpiece, but it is hugely funny, and is never dull or pointless. A kid's film to be reckoned with! 8/10
