Bone-Tickling Bloopers

Editorial Reviews

Comedian Tim Allen unleashes all the outrageous fun in this doggone hilarious update of Disney's comedy classic! The adventures begin when workaholic Dave Douglas (Allen) is accidentally transformed into a lovable dog. Now as Dave digs to uncover the mystery, this overworked dad wants nothing more than to stop fetching ... and get back to fathering. But before he does, he's about to discover that being man's best friend gives him a curious insight into what it takes to be a great dad! The tail-wagging fun continues with bonus features to howl about including bone-tickling bloopers, deleted scenes, and a special bark-along bone-us feature dogs will love!

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely wonderful film. I loved it !!!!!!! August 31, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a dvd for home use. I won't repeat the story as others have done so already. I loved the story. The plot was well put together and solid. The acting was wonderful. I have watched it a couple of times now and enjoy it more each time I see it. I really am enjoying the fun of this film. I'd suggest to folks to just relax and watch a terrific and humorous film. It is made to be light with family values of what counts in life. Tim did an outstanding job as he always does. The chasing scenes with Tim on all fours becoming a dog; the dog behaviors as a human had me rolling. It is one of the funniest films I've seen in a long time. As an adult I loved it and would buy it again. I'm thrilled to see Disney making such terrific and wonderful films. It was tastefully done. The caged scenes were carefully done. No bad language just a wonderful film that can be enjoyed as another eventual classic among the Disney films. And no I didn't perceive this as a film geared toward small children. Perhaps pre-teens and up would be my guess. To demean the film based on the expectation that tiny children would appreciate the story is not realistic nor does it do justice for what the film is. It is a wonderful film with a great storyline!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Harmless September 20, 2006
By Jim
Format:DVD
I ordered this on demand for my niece and I didn't expect to like it and I did. Although I admit Tim Allen deserves better. I thought he'd go on to more good movies since Galaxy Quest. But sadly that was probably his last good movie that actually gave him a good role. Although I admit I thought Big Trouble was decent. The Santa Clause 1 and 2 were decent too but I rather see him as Tim Taylor again than in...Santa Clause 3 which is coming out soon. Anyway he isn't bad here even if he's just talking for a dog most the movie.

It's basically...Look Who's Talking with a dog. Still it's mildly funny and entertaining and not a bad movie for the whole family. That is if won't be distrubed by a dog with a frog's body or a snake with a dog tail, or monkey that barks. The villian played by Robert Downey jr. fools around with genetics since the shaggy dog that bit Allen lived for years and years. So he's trying to discover the fountain of youth through the dog. Downey jr. is an under-rated actor that always adds some fun to no matter what movie he is in. I disagree with Ebert & Roeper who basically said he was the best thing about the movie though. I think Allen is kinda better here. He deserves better but I don't think anyone else could've been as good for the role. At this point though he's probably gonna be stuck in remake after remake like Steve Martin is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Furry Family Fun August 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Although three-and-a-half stars is a better rating in my opinion, I decided to round Disney's update of "The Shaggy D.A." and "The Shaggy Dog" due to the fact that it's a family film. While more and more family fare seems to be making its way to the big screen lately (which isn't a bad thing), so much of it isn't worth viewing. "The Shaggy Dog" is worth a couple of views if not more. I originally planned to write a review of this movie when it first came out on DVD, but due to a number of circumstances, I wasn't able to. I'm glad I waited. Having had the opportunity to watch this film a couple of more times, it has grown on me considerably and I've found that it gets better with multiple viewings.

The story revolves around deputy D.A. Dave Douglas, who's prosecuting a school teacher for a local genetics lab whenever the teacher is accused of trying to burn the lab down. The lab's second-in-command (a very funny Robert Downey, Jr.) is determined to get the teacher put away so that he can continue his "ethical" experiments. Dave's daughter, Carly (Zena Gray), supports the teacher and tries to prove that the lab is doing cruel tests on animals. While all of this is going on, Dave is trying to keep his family together. His daughter dislikes him for his work for the lab. His son, Josh (Spenser Breslin) tries to impress him by playing football, despite the fact that he'd rather try out for the school's performance of "Grease." His wife, the lovely Kristin Davis, feels ignored and unloved due to Dave's focusing too much on his work. Matters literally get hairier when Dave is bitten by one of the lab's animals, which happens to be a three hundred-year old sheepdog.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good laugh for all ages! August 10, 2006
Format:DVD
We saw this movie at the theater and absolutely loved it! Tim Allen is so funny in this movie! I have not seen the original version of this movie, but really enjoyed this film! There are some great special effects, action scenes that your kids will split up in laughter with! The character fits Tim Allen very well, he's kind of a scatter brained all business/attorney dad that trys to do the right thing, maybe spreading himself too thin, ultimately overlooking the ever changing needs of his growing children. With the help of a stray dog, and unfortunate event which causes the dog and dad to reverse rolls, in the end the dog helps him to see his mis-guided ways he's losing his children. There are some comical scenes of Tim slobbering, scratching, doing really funny dog things, sometimes infront of his court proceedings and clients, yikes! Likewise, the dog is able to understand and communicate non-verbally with the children and mom to convince them that he is the dad. The dad's crude behavior jeapardizes his career and the dog is in danger of being kidnapped by a crooked scientist with evil plans for the dog and his special abilities. It's a funny movie with a great message to parents to be involved in your kids lives.

RECOMMENDED!
