A Great First Feature Film for Higgins
1 February 2007 | by scottspinvinylnowSee all my reviews

I finally had to get my hands on a VHS copy of this hidden gem which stars everyones favourite dog Benji. This movie however is a couple years before the mega hit Benji. This creates almost like an aura like buildup to the whole franchise even though its technically not part of the Joe Camp, Benji Series.

Overall this movie tends to be a bit ridiculous, with its ZsaZsa narration which is a little wack at the best of times, and featured stars making appearances all getting a chance to get to know Mooch, who is looking to get "her" paw in the door with some famous Hollywood celebs. I have to say though I throughly enjoyed the dream sequences which was hilarious not to mention I have never seen Vincent Price so happy in any movie. The fact they dress up Mooch multiple times gets really much to silly, e3specially as an exotic dancer...yeah.

As a child though I would have absolutely loved this movie as I did the other Benji movies. There is just something that animal stars portray across the screen, and they don't even have to speak any words. This movie was worth it. If you come across it, you should pick it up. I have often seen it on inexpensive double feature dvds, and would be a great family movie to add to your collection that appeals to both adults and children alike.
