Browning is a PI with a bad cold, who's sent to investigate a case by a mysterious client.He stumbles across the body of a young woman and is stabbed to death, and when he wakes up in heaven, they tell him he's "marginal material," and they can only decide on his final destination through one last assignment: to go back and solve his own murder. As a dog. A cute fluffy little dog (Benji). Undaunted, Browning begins to investigate the case as best he can around his canine disabilities (dialing the phone presents a special challenge) to solve the murders, save the girl, and see justice done.
Chevy Chase and Benji team up for big laughs in this tail of murder, mystery and puppy love.

Did You Know?
The female dog Benji
was apparently the only actress to ever refuse to do a scene with Omar Sharif
, according to the official "Benji" website. It states: "Omar's acting style is so intense, Director (Joe) Camp reports, that Benji could feel his intensity, and freaked out every time Omar touched him. This broke Omar's heart, and he was afraid the dog hated him, which was, of course, not true. In the end, to get the scenes, Camp wound up putting on Omar's coat, and being his hands in the scene(s)." See more
After it's established that Alister Becket's birthday is March third, Benji remarks that it is six months passed (or six months away). Earlier, however, when scouting the scene of the crime, he looks at the desk calendar and sees that it's mid-October, so really Becket's birthday was less than five months ago or away. See more
