Plot Summary
Thousands of years ago, dogs arrived on planet Earth from a faraway star with plans to take over the world. Now, the Greater Dane (Vanessa Redgrave) wants a report on the takeover, so she sends Hubble (Matthew Broderick) to investigate. When he's adopted by the lonely Owen (Liam Aiken), Hubble slowly realizes that dogs have forgotten their mission. They're not man's worst enemy -- they're his best friend. And, to make matters worse, the Greater Dane is headed to Earth for an inspection.

    A promising idea turns into nothing, and we're left with a painfully dull kids' picture. show more

    No new ground is dug up in Good Boy, but the story is well-paced, sweet and lively, filling a void for very young filmgoers. show more

    This furry family comedy about a boy and his border terrier is irresistible, if not exactly in the league of "Babe." show more

    And Mick LaSalle you obviously have no appreciation for dogs and the role that they play in our lives!! So sad for you that you haven't had that pleasure!!

    I thought it was an adorable, touching movie that yes, its for kids but as a dog lover I thoroughly enjoyed it!! It showed how much dogs really mean to us!! How important they are to us and how much we love them and how much they love us!! Anyone that has the pleasure of having a dog as a "family member" will enjoy this movie!!
