Not particularly funny...
16 January 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

No doubt about it, this is a kids and family movie, and not really a movie suitable for watching without children in the household. That is, unless you are a child at heart.

The story is about a family whose dog is exposed to a growth enlargement experiment and becomes a "monster mutt". The dog returns to the family, and the children are faced with a whole new dimension of the family's pet - it's sheer size.

Personally I didn't enjoy this movie all that much, and my son gave up on it fairly quickly, losing interest in it shortly after it had started. So I guess this movie is somewhat of an acquired taste as to whether or not it will appeal to you or not.

I found the dog to be rather fake to look at and it just got annoying that it was so fake. That was the reason for me losing interest in the movie.

If you enjoy family movies with dogs, then something like "Digby" or "The Shaggy Dog" might be more interesting for you.
