What happens when a 300 year-old dog with mystical powers infects a district attorney with a genetic mutation? Pure canine chaos. Tim Allen gets transformed into an English sheepdog in the Disney comedy, The Shaggy Dog.

The Shaggy Dog - Family Man To Family Dog

Dave Douglas (played by Tim Allen) is a workaholic district attorney, who spends more time at his office than with his family. While he's prosecuting an animal rights activist for breaking into an animal testing laboratory, he gets infected with a genetic mutation which causes him to periodically turn into a sheepdog. The ensuing chaos causes canine confusion in Dave's courtroom, and at home with his already neglected family.

The Shaggy Dog - Who Let The Dogs Out?

While his career and relationship with his family goes to the dogs, Dave tries to fight off his new urges to chase cars, pee on fire hydrants and eat dog food. More importantly, he needs to figure out what's really behind the animal lab run by Dr. Kovak (Rob Lowe), who's been busy doing evil experiments on rats, chimps, snakes and other critters. With a new sense of smell and a fur coat, Dave soon discovers the secrets of the lab, as well as things about his family he never realized before.

The Shaggy Dog - DVD Features

The Shaggy Dog DVD not only gives you fun extras to check out, it also gets your pets involved! Grab your dog and plan a sing-a-long with the Bark Along feature. Your pets will probably enjoy all the bloopers and deleted scenes too!

The Shaggy Dog - Bottom Line

The Shaggy Dog is worth a few good "woofs" but it's nothing to go howling about. This flick is filled with some good laughs, especially the scenes where Tim Allen goes through his transformation from human to dog. The plot is more predictable than a rotweiller going nuts at the sight of a neighborhood cat, but in a month that's usually filled with second-rate movies, The Shaggy Dog is as good as any and still worth checking out.
