`Shaggy Dog' tale has heart

Review C+

March 10, 2006|By ROGER MOORE | ROGER MOORE,ORLANDO SENTINEL

Tim Allen was born to play a dog. He's been practicing since before he became a TV star - the growling, the panting, the crotch fixation.

Disney's remake of The Shaggy Dog uses Allen to great effect in a comedy about a workaholic dad who has to be bitten by a magical dog and become canine to find out the truth about his family and the real villains in a trial he is in the middle of.

The Shaggy Dog (Walt Disney Pictures) Starring Tim Allen, Robert Downey Jr., Kristin Davis, Danny Glover. Directed by Brian Robbins. Rated PG. Time 95 minutes
