Storyline

When Bingo, a runaway circus dog who leaves the big top, saves the life of Chuckie, a young boy who is having trouble fitting in with his pals. The two quickly become best friends-skateboarding, playing pinball, and doing math homework together. But Chuckie's parents discover the stowaway pooch, and make no bones about the fact that Bingo will not accompany them on thier cross-country move. What follows next is a heart warming 1000 mile adventure of puppy love and loyalty as Bingo and Chuckie encounter nutty charcters and hilarious situations in thier quest to be reunited. Dog catchers, kidnappers, hospitalsmand even prison cant keep the two misfits apart! Written by Uber Minion

Sort of a lame modernized throwback to the old Rin-Tin-Tin and Lassie films
30 October 2002 | by sorannoSee all my reviews

"Bingo" is at times comparable to just about every other "boy and his heroic dog" film ever made. Its only problem is that it doesn't do the genre right. There are more absurd moments of Bingo's comic mischief than actual adventure throughout the film. Children under eight years old should really enjoy this but there is a huge chance that anybody older than that might snooze.
