[the kids want to keep the puppy, George doesn't]
It's my decision. I mean, I have decided.
I knew it.
[a pause as George looks at his kids]
You'd better think of something to name him because when I come home and he's destroyed my house, I wanna know what to call him!

I do not how the hell one of my all time childhood favourite films is rated 5 but I can tell you this film is one of the greatest family films of all time even watching it again all these years later.
Great film about family love, awesomeness and man's best friend. I made an IMDb account just so I could make a review to defend this film as I was shocked to see it had such a low rating when in reality this film is an all time classic. Understanding the bond between man and animal really helps you tie into the emotional connection the family has with the dog.
10/10 as a family film / comedy. Will be watching with my kids for sure and you should too.
