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.Written by
According to Wikipedia, "outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage from this film were used in making the short feature Benji at Work (1980), a 30-minute documentary about the career of Benjean as a dog actor". See more »
When Bart comes to hire Benjamin to set him up he throws the bunches of banknotes on the desk and they land in one nice pile. In the very next scene one of the packets is off to one side, however in the next scene they are in a nice pile again and no one has touched them in either scene. See more »

After nearly all of the end titles have passed, "WOOF!" appears on the screen as the final title. See more »
I love this movie. It's got the cheesiest soundtrack (I'm pretty sure it's Paul McCartney and Wings), totally dating it that way, but it's got some pretty funny moments. Seeing Benji and having Chevy Chase involved in the same movie makes for all-around fun. Added bonus for those who like mysteries. This is a romance-mystery-comedy combo. Rent it.
