Overview

A police dog finds himself pitted in a battle of wits against an accident-prone mailman and a gang of crooks and it looks like the dog has the edge in the brains department in this broad comedy. Agent 11 Bob is a bulldog trained by the FBI agent Murdoch Michael Clarke Duncan to sniff out drugs, and the dog's keen nose ferrets out the storage facility of Mafia kingpin Sonny Paul Sorvino; Agent 11 has also been taught to show no mercy with criminals, and he gives Sonny a serious bite in a rather personal place. Needless to say, Sonny is not amused, and wants revenge against the pooch, so Agent 11 is put into the animal equivalent of the witness protection program. However, unlikely circumstances set the dog loose, where he soon pairs up with Gordon David Arquette, a stunningly inept letter carrier with a long history of fending off ill-tempered pets. Gordon is attempting to impress Stephanie Leslie Bibb, an attractive single mother, by helping to look after her son James Angus T. Jones, and when he comes across Agent 11, he adopts the dog and names him Spot, feeling certain he can smooth out the critter's often cranky relationship with people. But Gordon doesn't know that Sonny and his henchmen are hot on Agent 11's trail and that his new best friend will lead a gang of ruthless gangsters into Stephanie and James' home. See Spot Run was originally announced as a vehicle for comedy star Martin Lawrence, but when changes in Lawrence's schedule prevented him from taking on the project, it was retooled for the talents of David Arquette.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
See Spot Run should really be called See David Embarrass Himself. The David in question would be David Arquette, star of one of the most moronic exercises in slapstick and bathroom humor you're likely to see -- or preferably, not see. It's pitched at the same intellectual level as those Dick and Jane books referenced in the title, only not so wholesome and delightful. In fact, delight is totally absent from John Whitesell's detestable mess, which is as shoddily produced as it is vapidly written. Goofy sound effects seem to have come from sampler CDs rather than actual foley artists; visual effects are D-grade, as when a character who gets drenched by a passing car is clearly just being hit by a bucket of water thrown from the left side of the screen. See Spot Run begs you to notice its every imperfection -- you could make a drinking game out of it and be absolutely hammered by the end. You'd also want to include the bits that are just poorly conceived, like the ridiculous scenes in which Arquette bounces around a pet store encased in bubble wrap, does his best Wile E. Coyote impersonation while getting shocked by an electric dog collar, and repeatedly slips in doggy doo. But See Spot Run is an equal opportunity offender -- it also puts Leslie Bibb through the ringer, covering her in every foul substance you can imagine and positioning her in the blast zone of a farting zebra. Yes, that's right, a farting zebra. To up the offensive quotient, there are a bunch of mafia goons hanging around trying to whack the titular dog. That bull mastiff is the only cute thing about See Spot Run, but one senses that if he were a sentient creature, he would never have taken the part.

    Every family should have a copy!!!!

    This is a great movie! Unfortunately, it didn't get a lot of publicity & flew in under the radar. Since so many still have not heard of it. It's a great item to have on hand for a last min gift idea. Also, since laughter it the best medicine, it's a great gift for lifting spirits of those who need it. It's one of the few movies that I never got tired of the kids watching over & over & over.
