Roger Ebert Full Review
Average There is an age above which this movie is unnecessary, and it may be in the low double digits.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average His life as a dog provides fairly entertaining escapist family fare. But if you're seeking subtle wit and an intriguing plot, you're barking up the wrong tree.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 106 moviegoers:Children loved "The Shaggy Dog," but in all fairness, they tend to love every movie targeted at them. Teen opinions were very mixed but not bad. Older moviegoer opinions were good, but not great. "The Shaggy Dog" is a fun and entertaining family film and as long as you don't expect too much, I would recommend that you take the family to see it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The hairy adventures begin as unbeatable Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas (ALLEN) takes on his latest legal case—this time involving a criminal animal laboratory. It's yet another ambitious assignment that will whisk workaholic Dave away from his wife (KRISTIN DAVIS) and kids (ZENA GREY and SPENCER BRESLIN), who yearn for his attention. But when Dave is accidentally infected with a top-secret genetic-mutation serum that morphs his body into that of the family's new pet Bearded Collie, everything he thought he knew about being himself and a part of his family changes. Now, with his perked-up ears, and his front-row seat on the household carpet, Dave is able to gain an entirely different perspective into his family's secrets and dreams. Inspired by what he discovers, Dave wants nothing more than to stop fetching and return to fathering—only first he'll have to stop the evil genius (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.) behind the serum…in a literally wild chase that will finally give him a chance to become man's—and his family's—best friend.
