Storyline

Isabel Sullivan, who's fifteen, has just moved to a small town to live with her Uncle Paul, who is the town's Mayor. Isabel has recently lost her parents in a car accident. Feeling very alone and friendless, Isabel befriends a stray robot dog named A.R.C.H.I.E. Though he looks like a normal dog, he is anything but. He can talk. He can run at blinding speed. He has super strength and x-ray vision. Isabel and A.R.C.H.I.E. become fast friends. She teaches him how to be a normal dog, while he helps her to fit in with the cool kid clique. Most of all, Isabel can confide in A.R.C.H.I.E. about what happened to her parents. A.R.C.H.I.E. can relate. He's never had a family, until now. As the summer progresses, things start to get tricky. Paul is up for re-election, and finds himself running against Veronica Taylor, who happens to be in cahoots with Burgertropolis, a national fast food franchise that has been trying to buy Paul out for years. What's worse, an evil man named Hugh Jablonski shows... Written by Robin Dunne

Archie needs kids
2 September 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Teen girl Isabel Sullivan has to move in with her uncle Paul, small town mayor in Deanewood, after her parents' deaths. He also owns the local diner. Isabel likes local boy Aaron which gets her bullied by the mean girls. That's when she is befriended by A.R.C.H.I.E. (Michael J. Fox), a talking robot super dog. ARCHIE had escaped from his corporate and military owner. His designer Brooke comes looking for her missing dog. There's also Hugh in his ugly van. Meanwhile, Paul faces competition for the first time in a dirty mayoral campaign.

This is a childish kids movie with a big fart sequence. I don't mind it but it would be great if the leads are kids. These should be 10 year olds doing fart pranks. That may come with difficulties casting little kids but it's well worth it. The premise is silly and the execution amateurish that it doesn't work with older teens. They needs kids. Also uncle Paul needs to be older to be a true patriarch. Otherwise, everybody is fine. This is perfectly innocent but it is a little cheap.
