Wallace bows out in so-so style!
13 January 2007 | by JohnHowardReidSee all my reviews

Gone to the Dogs starts off in high gear when two gorillas get loose in Taronga Park Zoo. Despite poor process work, this opening sequence comes across as quite amusing and gives us a comedy promise for the rest of the movie that is unfortunately never realized, or even approached. Even such a sure-fire stratagem as the haunted house episode is disappointingly muffed, and the climax, whilst displaying an astonishing improvement in the process work, is likewise mishandled, even though it anticipates similar antics by Abbott and Costello (in Keep 'Em Flying) by several years.

All the same, the idea of partnering the diminutive butterball Wallace with tall, beefy John Dobbie makes for a delightful contrast (a bright idea that Billy Wilder was later to use in Kiss Me Stupid when he partnered Ray Walston with Cliff Osmond).

However, Gone to the Dogs offers one great compensation in Lois Green. She's a beauty! And her foot-tapping title song is reasonably well staged. (Alas, this is her only movie appearance).
