In 1959 Disney released a live-action family comedy about a family man who turns into a dog. Instead of keeping “The Shaggy Dog” out of the public consciousness, for good reason, the remake gods dictated that we needed a brand-new version. And that it should star Tim Allen. Check out the trailer right here. And yes, “Who Let the Dogs Out?” is a song used in the trailer.
Plot synopsis: An uncaring father learns how to love his kids only after turning into a fuzzy sheepdog and causing all sorts of painfully slapstick antics.
Co-starring alongside the humiliated-looking Tim Allen are Kristin Davis, Danny Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Spencer Breslin, and Jane Curtin. The director is (not surprisingly) Brian Robbins, the artist who gave you “The Perfect Score,” “Hardball,” “Ready to Rumble,” and “Varsity Blues.”
March 10th is when it hits, so be careful when wandering the multiplexes that day.
