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

the 'villainess'
20 May 2010 | by thieflord09See all my reviews

Is it just me or did she sound like ET in the beginning? I don't like to make fun of people, but... holy crap. ET. I swear. Is she TRYING to sound ridiculous?

The dog's pretty cute though. lol I was impressed by all of the things it did.

The whole 'talking' thing is more than a stretch, but oh well. The electronics were a little dated, but what can you do? The odd music when PC first 'speaks' is.. interesting lol. The constant rowling and making other noises to speak was cute.

I suppose it was a tad cute. I was amused by all the stuff Billy Connolly was saying as PC.
