This move is a remake of the 1959 film starring Fred MacMurray and was the film debut of Annette Funicello. In the 1959 film, it was not an adult who changed into a dog. See more »
In the opening breakfast scene, when Josh gets up from the table to go to school he leaves his two plates of eggs and toast on the table. In the next shot he is leaving with his sister and the plates are now magically on the kitchen counter. See more »
Went today to see this film. another remake but admittedly haven't seen the original. And I personally thought it was OK. Had three kids with me...14 yr old 8 yr old and 6yr old who all sat watching it, enjoying it and laughing away. Me too. Tim Allen was great as usual and def suits the comedy side of acting. Bit samey with the oldest child a teenage daughter who wears different clothes and wants to be rebellious...father works a lot and isn't the most committed father..mother who seems to do it all and has had enough and then the younger son who just seems to want to do his own thing but hasn't the nerve to say it. BUT apart from that the dog was great, Tim Allen and Robery Downey Jnr were great(nice to see Downey in something), some funny scenes with the actors and with the animals. Bit slow to start with but gets better. Def entertaining for kids and adults..if only Disney done more like this, seem to have dome some fantastic films years ago and then lost the plot a bit. Worth seeing
