After the dog bites Dave Douglas, it is taken away to the shelter to be tested for rabies. The standard test for rabies (and the only one that could return such rapid results) is the direct fluorescent antibody test, which is performed on a sample of the animal's brain tissue. Typically, the animal's brain or entire head is removed and sent to a lab for testing. See more »
So it's a dumb movie with a dumb plot - what do you expect? Agatha Christie? Robert Ludlum? This is a Disney film for children!
As a kids' movie, it's a lot of fun with plenty of slapstick and lots of laughs. The plot is goofy, but the basic premise is hardly meant to be realistic. This is not cinema verité. People give "What Women Want" with Mel Gibson a much higher rating, but that's just as daft.
There are plenty of set-piece chases, as you would expect with a storyline about dogs.
If you want clever, go see the Usual Suspects, just don't take your under-eights.
