The dog's eyes on the poster art for this movie are those of Tim Allen, who plays the character that turns 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 »
Dave Douglas (Tim Allen) is just your average a-hole dad working on a case involving a company that secretly experiments on animals, one of them a dog they stole from Tibet that ages in backwards dog years, making him over 300 years old. The team, led by Robert Downey, Jr., believe they can use this to help people live forever. There's a wrinkle in their plan as the dog escapes and enters the Douglas household. Like Cuba in Snow Dogs, Dave is not a big fan of canines. And then the dog bites him... and now Dave not only has the ability to tranform into a copy of this dog during extreme situations, he is cursed (?) with harboring dog-like attributes as a human.
The original Shaggy Dog wasn't even good to begin with, but this movie isn't terrible, but it isn't good either. It's just so surreal. The Shaggy Dog shouldn't even be rated. Its is OWN rating.
I give this a Shaggy Dog/10.
