Did You Know?


The scene where Quentin is introduced and when he fishes for bone is a very close recreation of Jaws. See more »


The closing credits list "James Williams" as the actor providing the voice for Diesel. However, the "making of" featurette in the bonus features on the DVD lists the actor's name as "Jacques Bolton." Likewise, the actor providing the voice for the Strange Dog is listed as Greg Al in the closing credits and as "Greg Albany" in the featurette. The voice of Cupcake is provided by "Kevin Yarbrough" according to the credits, yet the actor's last name is spelled "Yarborough" in the featurette. See more »

Silly but great Sorbo
27 November 2015 | by robinsonsrightSee all my reviews

This little film isn't a subject for serious review, being a lesser version of "Home Alone" with a dog instead of a kid, but Kevin Sorbo's bit as Quentin, a tough freelance dogcatcher, is worth checking out. His take on Quint in "Jaws" is so brilliant that I think he deserves some kind of Oscar, if only for keeping a straight face. Apart from that, the dogs are handsome and the canine cleverness may make the kids giggle (I must admit I found it amusing when the burglars' ringleader was sneaking around covered in furry toys and squeaking with each step). The real appeal is Sorbo, however-I don't think I've ever seen him in a film before, but I'll be watching for him now.
