Storyline

Alex knows the whereabouts of a stashed-away fortune of $1 million. The mysterious Anja murders him, but he's transferred clues of location of the cash onto computer disk that he gives to his dog called PC, who has to find a friend of Alex, Susie. PC was taken in by 14 year old Zac and his family who are neighbours of Susie where he creates an application that translates his barking into plain English. Zac allows PC to choose a voice with a Scottish accent and made a portable translator with a PDA and a microphone in a bow-tie so he can talk away from the computer. Anja traced him to the neighbourhood so now PC has to help Zac and Susie's daughter Samantha find the million dollars before Anja does. Written by Anonymous

Not bad...
6 January 2001 | by p.muscatSee all my reviews

The person who wrote in from Sleepyville seems to have been doing just that during this movie... sleep! I mean, if the great Billy Connolly's witty vocal delivery didn't keep him wide awake and laughing out loud, I don't know what would! True, the movie is one for kids mainly and there are a lot of inaccuracies, but it all evolves around Connolly's sterling work on the vocals. Not bad movie at all, enhanced all the more by Billy Connolly, the Scot of the Anarcich.
