Plot Summary

Opportunity strikes when he sees a television commercial in which Doctor Krank (Kelsey Grammer) claims to be able to turn animals into humans. However, when the experiment goes wrong, Spot must enlist the help of his owner, Leonard Helperman.

  • You don't have to be a fan of the TV show to enjoy watching this dog chase his shtick. show more

  • The energy is genuine, and the level of invention is remarkable, sustained as it is by Mr. Baseman's genially garish art, Timothy Bjoerklund's direction from a script by Bill and Cherie Steinkellner, and Nathan Lane's madly passionate performance as the canine who was famously born on the wrong end of a leash.

  • For all the work that went into the whimsical creatures and painterly palette, the voice actors more or less steal the show. show more
