Editorial Reviews

VHS FORMAT. 1977, Mulberry Square Productions, 85 minutes, color. Item no. 123. There have been cute dogs, and then there's Benji. This adorable mutt has been in umpteen films and is a definite keeper. Here is his second performance; this time in Greece, chased by spies and secret agents.

Format: DVD
For the Love of Benji takes the world's most huggable hero all the way to Greece, but this wonderful Greek vacation becomes a nightmare for Benji even before he is loaded on the plane. A bad guy drugs him and tattoos something on his paw, and when he finally get to Greece alongside his girlfriend Tiffany, he finds himself camping out in a storage area for misplaced baggage. He manages to get out of his crate and escape, only to find himself lost and all alone in a strange new city - hungry, tired, and frightened, missing Tiffany and Paul and Cindy Chapman. The bulk of this film follows Benji in his seemingly impossible search to find his family. He searches in vain, becoming more and more depressed, but he does manage to make one new friend. Still, he has to guiltily steal food in order to live, and if all that isn't bad enough, several strangers including that bad man who drugged him back in the airport are doing all they can to nab him. Benji has risked everything to save his friends in the past, but now he has to use all of his intelligence and leg power just to keep himself alive while he strives valiantly to find and be reunited with his family. There's an underlying storyline, of course, of the bad guys and their evil plot, but what really matters here is Benji. The film builds up to a thrilling conclusion that almost equals the emotional power of the original Benji movie.
Some people may not know that the Benji of For the Love of Benji is not the same talented actor who starred in the original Benji movie. Higgins, the original Benji, was fairly old when he made Benji a household name in 1973, and the role of Benji for this second movie was played by Higgins' daughter (who was actually named Benji). Yes, this Benji is played by a female, but it does not matter.

These two movies starring the dog from my childhood favorite TV series "Petticoat Junction" are passing the test of time with flying colors. It's not easy these days to keep your children entertained without letting them see the countless movies that feature terrific amounts of violence and sexual behavior. Back in the 1970's when these movies were first released into theater's there was no VCR or DVD home entertainment for the families on weekends or summer vacations. Parents used to drop the whole brood off at the neighborhood theatre for the double-feature. Tickets, popcorn, and drinks were affordable back then, you didn't need a $100 dollar bill for them to have a good time. I was a projectionist and theater manager and I did my best to get my owners to book all the G-rated fair that was available. We should bring those morals back for the young generations, it might make a better world in the future for them all.

this is a very good movie, and it seems like a real situation. The dog is trained very well. if you like this, you might wanta see the first Benji, Benji's Christmas, or Benji the Hunted. Benji the hunted made me cry hysterically, but it was still very good. Also you should see the newest Benji movie: Benji off the Leash. It's in theaters right now!!! I saw it, and it was really good!!!

Format: DVD
This second film consists mostly of scenes of Benji running. That doesn't have to be a bad thing. The first Benji film consisted mostly of scenes of Benji running, too, but it was quite good. This follow-up isn't as good, but for other reasons.

On the positive side, returning writer/director Joe Camp stuck with something unusual that he did in the first film--he did the film from a dog's point of view. That doesn't mean that the film is in first person from Benji's perspective. Imagine more a dog directing. The content, kinds of shots and kinds of angles are mostly what a dog might do. It made the first film, with its very unusual structure, a success, and it more or less makes this one, which also has an unusual structure, well, not exactly a success, but it makes it "kinda work".

A couple factors bring the success rate down a bit. The story takes place in Greece this time--in a move that seems like maybe the crew and cast wanted a paid vacation in Greece--and a lot of dialogue is in Greek, without subtitles. Although interesting for adults, that's a particularly odd move for a family film, and the goal here is definitely to make a family film--Camp even announces this at the very beginning onscreen.

Also odd for a family picture, most of the human-sourced interaction in the film features people attacking or chasing Benji--with chloroform, with meat cleavers, with fruit, with a big mean Doberman, and with guns. Not that it's graphic in any way, but the concept is there, and Benji's running is mostly precipitated by unfriendly people chasing him.

There is a complex plot involving scientific research, where they want to use Benji for nefarious goals, and where Benji seems to be world-famous, all of which is never explained very well.

I rented this thinking it might be good as the first one and it's ok but the first one I really like the most. This one is about he takes a trip to Athens, Greece. He enjoys the trip but he gets lost and tries to find his family. The Greece theme is really annoying but it mostly has the the same score from the first one. The first Benji I think is great out of all three the other two is not as good but Benji is still a classic!
