Storyline

When circus dog Bingo runs away from the Big Top, he saves the life of Chuckie, a young boy who is having trouble fitting in. 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 their cross-country move. What follows is a heart-warming 1000-mile adventure of puppy love and loyalty as Bingo and Chuckie encounter nutty characters and hilarious situations in their quest to be reunited. Dog catchers, kidnappers, hospitals, and not even prison can keep these two apart. Written by Uber Minion

Bingo the dog is funny!
29 July 2014 | by christian-56-220834See all my reviews

This movie is a great feel-good movie.

Bingo the dog is particularly funny.

The dog is as good as Lassie or any other acting dog!

The dog probably deserves an Oscar!

The beginning of the film starts pretty quickly, which is goods as the plot gets going straight away.

Bingo the dog keeps you entertained throughout until the middle of the movie when the other characters begin to take affect.

It would be funny to see the dog play bingo online or mobile bingo, but alas he just generally does tricks, and acts a bit like a human dog would.

This is a great kids movie, particularly for anyone that owns a dog.

For anyone that likes to play bingo, then this film is not for you, as it has nobody playing online bingo, mobile bingo - or even going down to their local hall to play.

We recommend this Bingo film, as much to see the funny dog as anything!
