Product Description

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!

2.0 out of 5 stars a real dog Nov. 2 2008
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
while i didn't mind the original The Shaggy Dog(1959),i thought this
sequel was not too good.i found it way too silly and absurd,and not
realistic.by that,i'm not talking about the premise,a man transforms
into a dog.that i can accept as being within the confines of the
movie.what i found unrealistic was how most of the characters acted and
or reacted.too say there was some overacting going on would be a
massive understatement.i also didn't find the characters endearing.i
did however find them annoying.and the acting in general was
unimpressive.and i found the ending abrupt with no real resolution.i'd
say this would be a good family movie,a family comprised of only 3 year
olds.maybe they ran out of money or time.whatever.this film had none of
the fun or charm of the original.for me,The Shaggy D.A.is a weak 2/5

5.0 out of 5 stars When Disney Was Great - More Extras Please! March 11 2004
By R. Dack
Format:DVD
With Dean, Jones, Keenan Wynn, Michael McGreevey and Tim Conway you can't go wrong with these incredible character actors. This is when Disney was great! As far as i'm concerned Disney died after The Rescuers (1978,1979).
Wilby Daniels tries to recover the stolen Borgia ring that transforms him into a dog as he's running for District Atty. Don't miss Conways hilarious scene in the Warehouse with the Security Guard..."the sannifran in the rectafrazzins condensing"
One of my top four fav's from the once-great, no longer palatable Disney Company.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Dog's Tale Feb. 25 2007
By Lonnie E. Holder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie was a sequel to the clever 1959 movie "The Shaggy Dog." That movie was charming and clever, packing a lot of humor and numerous subplots into a relatively short film. Unfortunately, this film is a pale shadow of the earlier film. The jokes are often forced and a viewer can easily see that the special effects used to make the dogs talk are film loops of dogs chewing. I recommend this film only for people who are loyal Disney fans or fans of the numerous well-known actors in this film.

Wilby Daniels (Tommy Kirk) encountered a Borgia ring in the 1959 movie "The Shaggy Dog." His transmutation into a sheep dog stopped at the end of the movie and the ring was put into safe keeping. Seventeen years later Wilby Daniels, now played by Disney regular Dean Jones, is an attorney living in a town full of corruption, lead by district attorney "Honest" John Slade, played by another Disney regular, Keenan Wynn. After being a victim of the rampant crime in Medfield, Wilby decides it is time to challenge Slade for the position of district attorney.

Unfortunately for Daniels, the Borgia ring has resurfaced and has already worked wonders for his hair; and his nose; and his tail! In a reprise of the original movie, we see Wilby turn into a sheepdog at the worst possible times. Wilby also manages to vex Tim Conway, who keeps trying to win a bet that his sheepdog Elwood can talk.

The rest of the movie is routinely scripted with slapstick jokes and scenes that are variations of similar jokes and themes from 1970's-era Disney movies, which is really the problem with this movie. The movie is okay, but uninspired. The movie struggles to be funny. The minimal tension in the movie is forced and generally unbelievable. The movie comes across as being tired.

In spite of the rehashed plot, the tired jokes and the slapstick, there are things to like about this movie. Somehow Suzanne Pleshette rises above the script in her role as wife Betty Daniels. Though the character of "Honest" John Slade is a stereotype of similar characters in other Disney films, Keenan Wynn is always fun to watch. The movie had other shining moments. The cherry pie fight scene was funny. Though the talking dog bit was over-used, the dog pound breakout had humorous moments.

Other well-known stars from that era include Vic Tayback (a regular in the television show "Alice") as crook Eddie Roschak, Dick Van Patten ("Eight Is Enough") as Slade's assistant, and Jo Ann Worley (whose first role was in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" in 1960, but became famous on Rowan and Martin's "Laugh-In"; Worley also appeared in the 1962 Disney space comedy "Moon Pilot") as Tim Conway's roller derby girl friend Katrinka Muggelberg.

In the 1950's and the 1960's Disney excelled at light comedy. The movie "The Shaggy Dog" is one of those light comedies. Unfortunately, Disney struggled in the late 1960's and in the 1970's with weak plots and weak scripts. This sequel to "The Shaggy Dog" was one of those that suffered from a weak script. Fortunately, there are just enough moments in this movie to make the movie worth having if you are a Dean Jones fan, a big Disney fan, or a fan of any of the other actors in this movie. I am usually comfortable with my rating for a movie, but if I could I would have rated this one three and a half stars.

Good luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars TIM CONWAY SAVES "THE SHAGGY D.A." March 16 2006
By Forrest C. Hopson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Disney's "The Shaggy D.A." is an inferior follow-up to the original classic, "The Shaggy Dog." The film stars Disney regular, Dean Jones, as Wilby Daniels (the part originally played by Tommy Kirk), who is now married to beautiful Suzanne Pleshette and is running for district attorney. Some crooks steal the cursed ring that was responsible for turning Wilby into a sheep dog when he was a teenager. The crooks thought the ring might be worth a fortune but discover no one will buy it, so they sell it to Tim Conway, whose an ice cream salesman and owns a big shaggy sheep dog named Elwood. Of course, he reads the encryption on the ring and Dean Jones turns into the sheep dog! Tim Conway saves "The Shaggy D.A." with his comic genius and has several funny moments throughout the film. Dean Jones is one of my favorite Disney actors, but this isn't his finest film. His best performances are in "Blackbeard's Ghost," "The Snowball Express," and the classic "The Love Bug." The dvd receives a very good transfer and is in the widescreen format. Extras include a making-of documentary with interviews with Tim Conway and Dick Van Patten, which give some insights on the film's set during production. I recommend "The Shaggy D.A." to Disney dvd collector's and fans of Dean Jones, and especially Tim Conway. "The Shaggy D.A." is a fair companion to "The Shaggy Dog" and a nice addition to the Disney dvd library.
