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!

What a great movie!
7 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story was great, the acting was great (and very funny), the dog was great...I could go on and on. This is a great family film that uses raw talent to get the story across instead of special effects or cheap laughs. Good clean fun. Matthew Knight did an awesome job as usual, I hope to see more from him! He puts so much emotion into every movie he does and this movie was no exception. Ana Gasteyer was perfect for her role too, she came across as a brilliant but somewhat dim-witted scientist helped along by her more intelligent assistant played by Brandon Firla who was perfect for his part as well.

Do yourself a favor and see this movie, ignore the low score, it must be from the people who didn't win an award at the film festival (this movie did!) The side story about the brother from Spain is hilarious as well! The movie was filmed in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan and it appears to be a really beautiful place.
