From family dad to family dog...and back again
Tim Allen gains a whole new point of view on becoming a great dad when he's accidentally transformed into a great big dog in this fresh, fun update of one of Disney's most beloved family comedy classics, THE SHAGGY DOG.
The hairy adventures begin as unbeatable Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas (Allen) takes on his latest legal case—this time involving a criminal animal laboratory. It is yet another ambitious assignment that will whisk workaholic Dave away from his wife (Kristin Davis) and kids (Zena Grey and Spencer Breslin), who yearn for his attention. But when Dave is accidentally infected with a top-secret genetic-mutation serum that morphs his body into that of the family's new pet Bearded Collie, everything he thought he knew about being himself and a part of his family changes. Now, with his perked-up ears, and his front-row seat on the household carpet, Dave is able to gain an entirely different perspective into his family's secrets and dreams. Inspired by what he discovers, Dave wants nothing more than to stop fetching and return to fathering—only first he'll have to stop the evil genius (Robert Downey Jr) behind the serum...in a literally wild chase that will finally give him a chance to become man's—and his family's—best friend.
Based on the hugely successful 1959 classic starring box-office favorites Fred MacMurray, Jean Hagen and Tommy Kirk—one of the first and most successful live-action Disney comedies—this new version raises the "woof" on the traditional tale with a fresh blend of contemporary humor and digital technology. Real animal stars have been merged with Stan Winston Studio's innovative animatronic puppets and Tippett Studio's CGI creations to add to the sidesplitting surprises.
