Good Boy!

"Oh boy!"
2 stars

A loner boy often on the move with his Trading Spaces-motivated fixer-upper parents, is thrust into a mini-adventure when the dog he adopts from the pound turns out to be sent from outer space (to check on how well the dogs here have succeeded in running humans) and an accidental glitch allows the boy to hear dogs speak.

(Think of it as a more limited Dr. Dolittle, Jr.) The importunate issue at hand is that the “Greater Dane” (“the top dog”) will be arriving on Earth for inspection shortly, and the planet’s dogs are in shabby shape. Though one would dare say this is for those depraved in the imagination department, in its most generic form it amounts to a harmless divertissement of time and even strays from applying much of a moral. The level of squeamishness and embarrassment in scenes of juvenile aggression and man-to-animal schmaltz tends to decrease the closer one is to nonage. With Liam Aiken, Kevin Nealon, and the voices of Matthew Broderick, Donald Faison, Vanessa Redgrave, and Cheech Marin. Directed by John Hoffman.

[See it if you must.]
