Trivia

The scene featuring "Benji" walking through a small, downtown main street was footage filmed in Van Buren, Arkansas. See more »

Goofs

Detective Lyle is clearly mistaken about the "underground transport tunnels," which have windows, an obvious sign that this is an above-ground building entered at ceiling level. Also, low-lying New Orleans is known for its high water table; any hole in the ground quickly fills with water--hence the above-ground mausoleums like the ones at the cemetery Benji runs through. Water must be continuously pumped out of underground structures in New Orleans; decrepit abandoned tunnels would be perpetually flooded. See more »

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.
