Just when he thinks life can't get worse, his world is turned upside-down when the scientist living next door performs a genetic experiment that goes terribly awry, transforming his dog into a flea scratchin', cat chasin', frisbee lovin' HUMAN!

worth watching, Matthew Knight does well as an actor -
16 March 2012 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

At times, the bad acting of one particular adult actress is painful to watch - it makes one appreciative of when great actresses such as Bette Davis and Ann Sothern performed in kids movies - however, the kid actors all perform well, and the movie does make you think about how dogs see the world.

There are some good scenes throughout the movie - and some of the adult actors perform well.

Overall, worth watching, not one of the best kids movies - but I think it would entertain most kids, even if older kids would smirk at the bad acting of one of the "villains" and some of the minor adult roles.
