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.
An adult tail of murder, mystery, and forbidden love.

According to the official "Benji" fan-site, "Benji is the only American actor ever banned from England. The British had a six-month quarantine on dogs in place, when Joe Camp wanted to shoot this movie there. The film had to be shot in Canada and France. The river scene at the end of the picture with Benji and a cat, is supposed to be the Thames, reports Camp, but is actually the Seine, at that famous spot right across from Notre Dame." 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
