Too weird to be bad, too Disney to be good
Dave Douglas (Tim Allen) is just your average a-hole dad working on a case involving a company that secretly experiments on animals, one of them a dog they stole from Tibet that ages in backwards dog years, making him over 300 years old. The team, led by Robert Downey, Jr., believe they can use this to help people live forever. There's a wrinkle in their plan as the dog escapes and enters the Douglas household. Like Cuba in Snow Dogs, Dave is not a big fan of canines. And then the dog bites him... and now Dave not only has the ability to tranform into a copy of this dog during extreme situations, he is cursed (?) with harboring dog-like attributes as a human.

The original Shaggy Dog wasn't even good to begin with, but this movie isn't terrible, but it isn't good either. It's just so surreal. The Shaggy Dog shouldn't even be rated. Its is OWN rating.

I give this a Shaggy Dog/10.
