Although the writing credits are supplied by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and cannot be changed, there is an onscreen credit: "suggested by The Hound of Florence by Felix Salten". See more »
When Dave is distracted driving to the courthouse, he slams on the brakes and the car slides to a stop. The age of car that he is driving would undoubtedly feature ABS (Anti-lock brakes) and therefore would unlikely slide in this manner. See more »
Not brilliant, but very funny, The Shaggy Dog shall keep you entertained!
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
