The first political candidate with a law degree and a pedigree is now on DVD! Dean Jones, Tim Conway, Suzanne Pleshettte, and Keenan Wynn star in this howlingly hilarious sequel to Walt Disney's classic, THE SHAGGY DOG. Disgusted by the shady dealings of not-so "Honest" John Slade (Wynn), Wilby Daniels (Jones) decides to run for District Attorney, but when robbers steal the magic Borgia ring that "dogged" Wilby as a teenager, the fur really begins to fly! Once again, Wilby keeps turning into a large, talking sheepdog at the worst possible moments when the ring's magical incantation is read aloud. And when dirty trickster Slade discovers Wilby's secret, the race is on to see who can get their paws on the ring first! Packed with nonstop laughter for the entire family, THE SHAGGY D.A. promises -- and delivers -- sidesplitting fun!
In this sequel to The Shaggy Dog
, Wilby Daniels (Dean Jones) has grown up and married Suzanne Pleshette, and has a young son. When the family comes home to find the house cleaned out by "movers"--who Daniels knows are protected by the corrupt District Attorney John Slade (Keenan Wynn)--he decides to run against Slade in the next election. Meanwhile, hoodlums connected to the same crime syndicate get hold of the mystical ring that turns poor Daniels (via mid-'70s special effects) into Elwood, the dog owned by the local ice-cream vendor (Tim Conway). Lots of chase scenes, a little roller derby action, and some cherry pie throwing complicate both Daniels's bid for office and his quest to remain a human being. Kids will enjoy the last half of this 91-minute movie the most as Daniels spends most of the time in his dog persona and because his son becomes part of the plot to undo the bad guys. This G-rated feature is safe for all ages, but kids probably won't sit through it until age 4 or 5. --Kimberly Heinrichs
