Editorial Reviews

This heavenly and hilarious detective story stars Chevy Chase and Benji, America's favorite canine star. After being killed in the line of duty, a private investigator (Chase) arrives in Heaven, only to be told he's going back to Earth to solve his own murder and the murder case he was working on when he was killed. He's elated- until he realizes he's being sent back in the body of a small, scruffy dog (Benji)! Filled with laughs and dog stunts galore, this tail wagging comedy also stars Jane Seymour and Omar Sharif.

For starters, let's say that this film is really....different. It is a great combination between suspense, comedy, and an oddly, romance. As a private detective, American, residing in London, Chevy Chase is hired to do a job that goes south and results in his own murder. Because his final destination is indeterminable, the powers that be send him back as a "returnable" to solve his own murder. The catch is, the only body available is a scruffy dog about to be hit by a garbage truck - enter Benji. By far, this is Benji's most adult film. This is not just a cutesy dog movie that you are used to seeing Benji in - there is definitely adult humor. Jane Seymour is beautiful and makes conversation with a dog seem totally natural (pretty remarkable if you ask me). For you Pride and Prejudice fans, look for a younger version of a famous occupant of Rosings Park.
Chevy Chase does a remarkable job conveying his character when you consider the fact that most of the time, we only hear his voice and see Benji, whose actions were, I'm sure, not entirely predictable. As little as we see him, you still know Chevy Chase is there - because his undeniable wit never lets you forget his presence. The mystery is intriguing, even though we know from the start who the murderer is. The pleasure is watching our villain become aware that he is being outwitted by a dog.
Another thing to look for - when Chevy Chase is in Heaven, watch for the special effects and sounds that are humorously borrowed from popular sci fi of the day (star trek, etc.), including a direct reference to Star Wars. On top of that, the film has a marvelous soundtrack, including songs by Paul McCartney and Elton John.

1980's Oh! Heavenly Dog, Benji's third movie, is quite a contrast from Benji's first two films. Benji and For the Love of Benji were quintessential family films that told touching stories of canine cunning and heroics entirely from the perspective of the furry little hero; there, Benji's acting prowess could move you to tears in moments of crisis and lift you sky-high when Benji finally managed to safely rescue the humans he loved. Those films had funny moments, but they were basically built upon drama and conveyed serious messages. Oh! Heavenly Dog is a straight-up comedy.

Chevy Chase plays a private investigator named Browning, whom we meet during the last hour of his life. Hired to protect a certain young lady, he soon finds her - and then himself - murdered. He then finds himself in an afterlife processing center, where he learns he is considered no better than a marginal applicant for heaven; fortunately for him, he gets one last chance to prove himself worthy. All he has to do is go back to earth and solve the case of his own murder - and he has to go back in the form of a little dog because no human bodies are available at the moment. Thus we finally meet Benji (some twenty-two minutes into the film). We do see the rest of the film from Benji's perspective, but this time around, we can actually hear his thoughts - because they are Browning's thoughts. Cracking a murder case is hard enough when you have hands and a human voice; trying to accomplish it when you are a stray dog is even tougher.

Fortune smiles upon the canine Browning when he meets up with the attractive young lady he bumped into mere moments before his earthly demise, for she is actually researching a book on the murders.

I was remembering this movie a couple of months ago and how much I liked it when it came out so I ordered it. Buyers should beware that even though Benji is one of the main stars, this movie has a little bit of bad language in it, so you might not want children under 11 or 12 to see it. The words are not too terrible, but not suitable for small ears either. Otherwise, it's a great movie!
