Although Shaggy is referred to as a sheep dog, the dog who played Shaggy (Cole) is a Bearded Collie, a herding breed known for their intelligence, energy, enthusiasm, and ability to jump (known as "the Beardie bounce"). See more »
The dog shows up for the anniversary dinner with flowers. How did he get them? If he stole them, how did he get them wrapped? See more »
So it's a dumb movie with a dumb plot - what do you expect? Agatha Christie? Robert Ludlum? This is a Disney film for children!
As a kids' movie, it's a lot of fun with plenty of slapstick and lots of laughs. The plot is goofy, but the basic premise is hardly meant to be realistic. This is not cinema verité. People give "What Women Want" with Mel Gibson a much higher rating, but that's just as daft.
There are plenty of set-piece chases, as you would expect with a storyline about dogs.
If you want clever, go see the Usual Suspects, just don't take your under-eights.
