Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The sweet and friendly Good Boy! is positively canine in its eagerness to please. As with Cats and Dogs, the premise is irresistible: Dogs, it is revealed, are superior beings from another planet sent here long ago to colonize Earth. Over the years, however, they became pets instead of masters, and Canid 3942 (voiced by Matthew Broderick) has been dispatched by the Greater Dane to determine whether dogs should stay or be recalled to the home planet. Canid, more adorable than E.T. and way more civilized than Stitch, finds his mission complicated when, after crash-landing his spaceship, he is befriended by Owen (Liam Aiken), your requisite lonely misfit, who operates a dog-walking service. He names the dog Hubble and is stunned to discover his new super-intelligent pet's extraterrestrial origins. Hubble is horrified at how dogs have become domesticated, and he must retrain the neighborhood pooches (voiced with loads of personality by, most prominently, Carl Reiner, Delta Burke, and Brittany Murphy) before the Greater Dane arrives to fetch them home. Good Boy! may not be best-in-show, but dog lovers of all ages will lap this up, particularly the predictably heartwarming conclusion when Hubble learns to stop worrying and love to fetch.

Not all movies need blood, murder, extraordinary stunts, and mayhem. This is a feel good, and good, movie. I suspect dog lovers will truly enjoy this one.

The best canine movie I've ever seen. You'll really like the mixed drama, comedy, friendship, and action!
