Review

Our Score
The title isn't the only thing this sequel almost shares with Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The opening conceit is also similar, with an airport mix-up resulting in an accidental abandonment. However, with Shadow the retriever and Sassy the cat to help him, bulldog Chance isn't alone for long. Indeed, romance is soon in the air as our three heroes are befriended by a pack of street dogs. Ralph Waite admirably replaces the late Don Ameche as the sagacious voice of Shadow, but not all the casting is as felicitous: the decision to have strays voiced by African-American actors has unfortunate racist overtones.

Summary

Two dogs and a cat are left to fend for themselves on the streets of San Francisco when their owners fly off on holiday and accidentally leave them behind. As they join a tough group of strays, they must avoid falling into the clutches of the sinister dog catchers. Adventure sequel, with the voices of Michael J Fox, Sally Field and Ralph Waite.
