| One of the most Heart-Warming Funny Lovable Films About Animals EVER!!
Maybe I'm a sap but this is the sweetest movies ever! I saw it for the first time when I was around 4 or 5, and I cried my eyes out. Between then and now (embarrassed at age 15) I have seen it over 25 times and have sobbed each and every one of them. Don't worry they're tears of happiness! And it's not all sap! There's a lot of humor and comedy in it too. Usually the whole talking animal thing can be a huge drag but in this movie it's not the case. My only word of advice: Even if you love this-Don't see the sequal...cornyness! I suggest everyone checks this out...you won't be sorry, no matter how old or young you are!

Trivia

Sassy, who had escaped the animal control officer, comes looking for the dogs and climbs the fence of Shadow's cage. (The cat was actually climbing to retrieve food that was placed on the lock and she was also responding to a buzzer.) Sassy rescues Shadow and releases him from his cage and Chance gets off the vet's table and there is a big chase scene as the animals run down corridors and the ACO's chase them. For this scene the animals were actually running and playing up and down the hallways of the filming area. When they escape the building they run toward the surrounding fence. Sassy slips under a small hole underneath the fence. Shadow also manages to get underneath it but Chance, who is a little bit bulkier, becomes stuck. The three animals were each responding to the sound of buzzers. Chance was actually not stuck, but the director cut the film at precisely the right moment to make it appear as if he was. His backside is still on the pound side of the fence when a ACO grabs hold of him. Shadow throws himself at the fence, surprising the ACO, who lets go of Chance. When Shadow throws himself at the fence, he was actually doing a "foot-up", which his trainer had taught him. He was merely putting his feet up on the fence and the film was sped up to make it appear as though he was throwing himself at the fence. The three animals are off on their own again.


Quotes

Chance: My name is Chance. I know, it sounds odd, but most names do if you think about it long enough... maybe even yours. I was abandoned when I was very young. I lived on the streets scrounging for food sleeping wherever I could; that seemed like fun at ...


Goofs

When Peter is saying goodbye to Shadow at Kate's ranch, the grass around Shadow changes between shots.


Alternate Versions
