Archie is a rich and utterly despicable practical joker. He is one week away from playing a CD-ROM that will change the lives of his trusted manager, Dexter, and other employees forever when he is suddenly involved in a deadly accident. He quickly discovers that instead of entering Heaven's pearly gates, he is being sent back to Earth to clean up the mess he created. Since he has an absolute dislike for animals, especially dogs, it is quickly decided that he should be returned to Earth as a dog and not just any dog, mind you, but a fluffy white Pomeranian named Quigley. Sweeney, an "observing" guardian angel, will accompany him. He is the only person who will actually see the real Archie. Everyone else sees Quigley. He's given two very different assignments. One is to retrieve the CD-ROM before it's played and the other is to help his brother, Woodward, and his family, whom he hasn't talked to in years. Quigley (a very confused Archie) has much to do and little time to do it. Written by Anonymous

Complete Stinker
30 July 2007 | by falwestSee all my reviews

What a waste of precious time! My 5-year-old daughter brought this home from my mother's house, and we watched it as a family. None of us liked it. This wretched little film, rife with glaring inconsistencies, overt Christian themes and horrible film quality, is not worth watching even on a dare. It felt a bit like a bad high-school drama class attempt at film making. How sad to see talented actors (Chris Atkins, Gary Busey, and company) flounder their way through this trite and insipid storyline. The only good thing I can say about this movie is that the dog is cute. The film can should have gone straight to the pound. Avoid this film - your time is better spent watching paint dry.
