The Shaggy Dog

Rated PG 99 minutes 2006

Tim Allen turns into the titular pooch in director Brian Robbins’ Disney remake of the 1959 original starring Fred MacMurray. After a 300-year-old dog from a Tibetan monastery bites Allen’s workaholic district attorney, the family dad turns into the family dog. Meanwhile, his son secretly searches for his inner Martha Graham; his wife is on the verge of filing for a divorce; his daughter becomes inspired by her pyromaniac professor to make People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals proud, and a crazed Dr. Jekyll-type (Robert Downey Jr.) is greedy to make PETA scream. Whether Allen’s a man chasing cats or man’s best friend interrupting his daughter’s sex life, the simplistic yet charming humor keeps family viewers on a leash until the very end.
