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

Has a lot of problems but it is bright, breezy and good natured
3 March 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This flawed but watchable family comedy means well and essentially it is bright, breezy and good natured. The script has its weak spots, Nathan Cavaleri is rather bland as Zac, the story is rather standard and the pace is uneven a little too rushed for my taste. But the film is enjoyable thanks to a cute and appealing little Jack Russell terrier named PC voiced brilliantly by Billy Connolly and some inspired physical comedy and action. It is nicely filmed and the direction is not that bad. Sandy Gore has fun as villainess Anya too.

Overall, "Paws" has a lot of problems but it is a harmless and fun family film. I will say if you want a more adorable, heart warming and fun Australian family film I recommend "Napoleon". 6/10 Bethany Cox
