FINN ON THE FLY is a madcap comedy filled with wild chases, mistaken identity and young romance. Ben Soledad, a shy thirteen-year-old, has just moved to a new town. He tries his best to fit in at MacKenzie Junior High, but most of the time he feels like his only friend in the world is his dog, Finn. 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! Written by
This film is poorly acted, poorly thought out, poorly directed, and poorly written. It's a real shame, since the concept could be really fun. At times, the film shows its true potential by providing us with catchy one- liners, but this is a potential it never fulfills. The villains are cheesy and cliché, and the sidekicks of the hero are enough to offend anyone that has ever touched an iPod, Game Boy, or Frisbee.
What could have been done to salvage this atrocious piece of film? Well, let's start with the writing. Give less time to the dog acting like a dog and more time to the dog expressing his feelings to his human comrade. As for direction, I don't think it can be helped. The actors could be good if they had interesting lines. Editing is slow paced and could stand a pick-up.
Overall, this is a crappy children's film the wreaks of low budget and exploitation cinema. I wouldn't recommend this film for anyone, no matter how much you love dogs, this film will make you hate them.
