Families will like it but it lacks originality in many respects;
Belinda (Elisa Donovan) and George (Gary Valentine) have multiple family problems to solve. First, Belinda is starting a party planning business and is harried. Second, their dog is unruly at times and needs obedience training. This is especially so after the canine runs amok at Belinda's first big party! Meanwhile, three bumbling petty criminals are hatching a plan; one of them is being consulted while still in jail! That's Ted (Dean Cain) As the doggy takes intense training with a Rambo type and his talented police dog, the thieves have their eye on a big jewel heist in the shop next door! It doesn't take long for them to realize they will get into the canine school basement area and dig into the gem store. The Oriental janitor may be on the lookout, while he also helps train George's dog. Can the good guys win while the bad guys go down? You bet! This film is pleasant enough and families will like it. Valentine is very funny as are the trio of perps. But, the flick definitely has a case of deja vu all over again, as many happenings may seem familiar. There are also, naturally, a few flatulence jokes, which are almost the lowest form of humor. Nevertheless, if you love animals, comedy, and family friendly films, this is one to add to your list.
