Movie Critique: "LENNY THE WONDER DOG"

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just finished watching the movie, LENNY THE WONDER DOG, made in 2004, in high definition, which I recorded on my cable television's digital video recorder from the SHOWTIME Channel.

Do you have young'uns?

This is a children's movie, so be prepared to clean up spilled soda pop, ice cream, pizza, or other messes on the living room floor in front of your television set.

I think your puppy dog(s) and kitty cat(s) will also have a good time, since they tend to respond to emotional cues exhibited by their humans.

Not only that, your puppy dog(s) and kitty cat(s) will actually be very helpful to Mama and Daddy, for furry critters can be counted on to eagerly help clean up any spilled goodies that's in front of your television on the living room floor.

Now, how do I describe this movie, without saying too much, and spoiling it for you?

First of all, it's about a dog.

There's also a mad scientist, some kidnappers, and some junior high school kids.

There's a pair of "identical twins" (think, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito), a warehouse inside of a tool shed, and a high speed chase on scooters.

You'll learn to say "Holy Shababa!", and you'll learn Tina Turner's real name.

At one point, a kidnapper yells,

"Shut your mouth kid!

We're trying to stay away from a PG-13 rating!"

Making this movie was a difficult undertaking, because the actors kept laughing when they were supposed to be serious, and the dog, being a dog, didn't always cooperate.

The only thing I disapproved of was kids saying, "Oh, God!", or "Oh, my God!", when they obviously weren't praying to the Almighty.

Other than that objection, the movie is clean and safe for the whole family to enjoy together.

So, pile up on the big comfy couch, and send out for some pizza, 'cause it's family time!

Pass the popcorn, please.

Thank you.
