Fine film fantasy for family fun
6 April 2003 | by herbqediSee all my reviews

Little boy's wish to have dog goes awry when he gets turned into a German Shepherd. He gets to experience life as a dog for the longest 12 days of his life, and gets a dogs-eye view of life. The humans are just plot contrivances, but enjoyable ones, particularly Gordon Jump as the Wizard-of-Oz-like "Professor." Anne Lockhart and David Bowe are appropriately befuddles as Tim's parents, and the young actress playing Haley is simply adorable. Altogether, this is a simple, but addictive, family film.
