After Eddie shoots the deadbolt lock (which wouldn't have opened the lock anyway) in the back door of the room where the incubator was located, the door is opened to reveal there is no strike plate or even a hole in the door frame to accept the bolt. The deadbolt could not have been locked. The strike plate for the doorknob is visible, but there should have been another one above it. See more »
This is a movie about a cop by the name of Monroe and a talking dog. Just the premise alone is enough for a low rating, but I give this movie six stars out of ten because despite its flaws-- things like the ridiculous voice the dog "speaks" in and the cop shooting his gun at the bad guy about fifteen times without stopping to reload, and the sloppy editing where one minute the bad guy has inexplicably ran down a hallway but the next instant he's seen hovering over our hero-- this silly movie isn't too bad to watch. It's nice to see a movie where some of the usual cop clichés are turned upside down; in this case, the police captain makes rude remarks to Monroe, but instead of hating of him, it's because the captain actually likes Monroe instead. And there are funny moments like when Monroe makes a phone call, using equipment built into the dog to make the call.
I'm not saying this movie couldn't have been better, but as it is, this movie is a nice little comedy that works in spite of the minor flaws. It would have been nice if this was made for direct to video, or was out on DVD, but since it isn't you'll just have to look for it to be on TV or cable sometime. You'll enjoy it when you can find it.
