So Disneys' go to guy Allen is back in his Santa Clause mode, but this time he turns into a dog.
He plays an assistant DA, who is trying to lock up some gut because he is accusing a huge corporation of testing on animals.
And obviously he ignores his family and breaks promises.
Hilarity ensues when he is bitten by a dog, and it's DNA passes through his bloodstream and the inevitable happens.
If you've seen any Allen film made by Disney in the last twenty years, you've seen this. But strangely enough, this film is quite disturbing in scenes that are supposed to be laugh out loud funny.
Seeing a warped Allen chase a cat, shake after having a shower, sleeping on a bed in a weird way, or sniffing and growling, were supposed to be the key hilarity factor in this.
But it isn't. In fact, it's downright freaky in a way that just cannot be described. Allen looks like he's made a big mistake signing on to this, and the rest of the cast look bewildered, apart from Downey Jr. who looks like he is just off his face.
The effects are poor, and for a film that's aimed at youngsters, anything featuring the bad guy inject a man so he will be paralysed for months, and Allen being nude four times, has to raise alarm bells.
And the surfing dog is stuff of nightmares.
A Disney horror, in more ways than one...
