| Childhood obsession
I have given this film a 7. My Dad would take me to the video shop once a week and I would, without fail, come home with 'For the love of Benji'

I loved this film and have fond memories of it.

It is clever as it was one of the first films made from a dogs point of view. It showed how intelligent and perceptive dogs are - they know good people from bad people almost instantly.

It also shows how sly, cunning and resourceful they can be when made to fend for themselves.

It did have a few heartstring pulling moments, when Benji is generous with today's spoil.. being separated from loved ones and reunited again.

I think children today would still enjoy this film.. regardless of the amount of running Benji does.
