Storyline

Sweet and savvy talking golden retriever, Bailey, is one doggone lucky pooch when his devoted owner, Constance Pennington, leaves him her entire billion-dollar fortune. Bailey is lucky, that is, until he becomes the target of an elaborately-designed dognap scheme hatched by Constance's nasty nephew Caspar and his money-hungry wife Dolores. The despicable duo's wicked plan is to ultimately gain custody of the canine so they can get their greedy paws on his inheritance. Unfortunately for them, there's a thing or two they don't know about Bailey. Not only does he have great street smarts, he has great pals too. Bailey's loyal guardian Ted, kind-hearted animal advocate Marge, her daughter Sam, and a clever border collie named Tessa set out on a hilarious madcap adventure to free their four-legged friend and put the nasty dognappers out of business-for good!

Boring Acting Real Kryptonite (B*A*R*K)
16 October 2006 | by Ian BourneSee all my reviews

Dean Cain has truly gone to the dogs - far from being a super man he has been hit with a different kind of Kryptonite as in K-9, in this picture, he plays a canine version of a "horse-whisperer" and is the sole character in this tale who understands a mutt (whose voice is played by Jon Lovitz, which was redeeming in the sense it was typecasting and therefore not as annoying as usual) that inherits a fortune and Tim Curry is the villain who tries to seize the loot for himself.

Jennifer Tilly plays a role similar to what Valerie Perrine played in the first "Superman" movie with Christopher Reeve, the difference being that Valerie was a sultry ditzy vixen but Tilly played a simpering virago who pretends to be smart.

Filmed in Canada and using Canadian court practices, this tale uses tried and true methods of previous films that use kids & canines - emphasis on the tried to the point of trying, as in too damn hard on a worn out old vehicle.

The best way to watch this picture is if you have insomnia one night and need a natural tranquiliser, yawn!
