This daft comedy tells the tale of an FBI supermutt who teams up with a postman to thwart an attempt by the Mob on the dog's life. With a cute kid, two half-baked Italian-American hitmen and some scatological humour in the mix, this could have ended up a dog's dinner. Yet David Arquette gives an enthusiastic performance as the postman, and there are some nice, relatively straight-faced support performances from Paul Sorvino, Joe Analyze That Viterelli and Michael Clarke Duncan (the man-mountain from The Green Mile). Two parts Home Alone to one part Turner & Hooch, this may not have the best pedigree, but children won't be disappointed.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring David Arquette. When FBI superdog Agent 11 deprives a Mob smuggler of an important part of his anatomy, the pained hood orders a hit on the four-footed fed. But the dog does a runner, only to end up in the delivery van of dog-hating postman Gordon.
