Two smart dogs.
13 June 2018 | by collinsburns57See all my reviews

This film delivers make-believe reality where emotions count instead of slapstick stuff with goofy bad guys. I particularly felt Benji when he was in the street on a rainy day looking in gloom early on in the film, and the mysticism at first, about his new equally intelligent girlfriend-to-be tramp hound of which who also surprises me along the course of the movie.
