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

Sunday Morning Movie, to Watch Only While Breakfast is Ready
3 May 2007 | by Juan_from_BogotaSee all my reviews

This movie, specially made for kids have been obviously inspired by Disney, some magic can be seen, but that magic will only work for child, and this will last only till breakfast, because the movie is bad, not too bad but simply bad. You can spend some time with your kids but that's all!. The resemble to Cruella De Ville (101 Dalmatians) in Anja is so obvious that you'll get laugh, the old man expert on computers is funny and also weird, and the PC dog that's more intelligent than Einstein is also funny, this unbelievable plot hides a story of finding a treasure that literally bored me to the edge!. If someone have read this and suddenly turn the TV on and see this, i recommend that quickly change to Disney channel!. Some people said that they wanted to see this movie because Billy Connolly made the dog's voice. Really?, who want to see a movie for a voice?, i won't and actually i have never listen "hey let's see Finding Nemo, there's Albert Brooks voice in it!", i saw it a shiny Sunday morning just before breakfast on TNT, and that's it!, no excuses.

ABOUT THE MOVIE: PC is Alex's (Norman Kaye) dog, Alex is an old man that loves computers (you can said so because of the dog's name), and who has hidden 1 million dollars from Anja (Sandy Gore) an evil old witch (aka Cruella De Ville); Alex left the clues to find the money on a disk that send to his friend Susie (Caroline Guillmer) with his dog just before dying. PC finds some troubles giving the disk to Susie and ends on her neighbor's house, where a boy, Zac (Nathan Cavaleri) take the disk, but also finds that PC is a dog expert with the computers, they create a software that made the dog talk by some type of mechanism (this is where the long expected voice of Billy Connolly appears!), they join forces also with Susie's friend Samantha (Emilie Francois) in order to find this million dollar before Anja does. In this they face some funny and entertaining situations trough the movie.

4/10! and sorry i have to go, breakfast is ready.
