Overview

Robert Stevenson, Walt Disney Productions' house director, cobbled together his 19th family film for the organization with this slapstick sequel to the Disney comedy The Shaggy Dog (produced 17 years after the fact). Dean Jones plays Wilby Daniels, a lawyer running against the villainous John Slade (Keenan Wynn) for district attorney. His campaign is cast into doubt when he comes upon an ancient ring that transforms him into a fat sheepdog. But the campaign progresses on a level playing field when the unscrupulous Slade finds himself also turned into a canine -- a disgruntled bulldog. Another sequel, The Return of the Shaggy Dog, followed.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The Shaggy Dog was a lightweight but enjoyable and immensely successful high-concept comedy from the Disney studios. The fact it took so long for a sequel is a bit of a surprise. Audiences who enjoyed the original will likely enjoy The Shaggy D.A., as much of it is the same story told with adults rather than children. The sequel lacks some of the innocent charm of the original, as well as the special qualities that Fred MacMurray and Tommy Kirk brought to their work; however, it has better special effects, a slicker quality, and fine work from Suzanne Pleshette, Keenan Wynn, Tim Conway, and Jo Ann Worley to recommend it. As the star, Dean Jones is in good form, but a little mechanical; by this point in his career, he may have felt he had been through all of this before (and with good reason). Still, Jones is amiable as always, good-hearted if stubborn and a bit thick, and he plays well off of the delightful Pleshette. Shaggy D.A. is no great film, but it's pleasant enough.
