A remake of a 50 year old Walt Disney classic, The Shaggy Dog is a family/comedy movie which is rated PG. The mo e runs 98 minutes long and stars Tim Allen. Almost fifty years ago, Walt Disney produced his first live- action film for theatrical release. "The Shaggy Dog" went on to be one of the biggest money- makers of the year and turn into a family classic. Now the Walt Disney company has remade the film This time, it's not the young Tommy Kirk that's turned into a dog, but funny-man Tim Allen. In a hybrid of the original film and its sequel "The Shaggy D.A " this version sees Allen as Dave Douglas, a hard-hitting deputy district attorney itching to become the district attorney. He hates dogs and doesn't pay much attention to his family. However, when he is bitten by a 300-year-old magical mutt,- he turns into a shaggy dog him- self. Catering to his professional ambitions, Douglas spends way too much time at the office and way too little time with his fam- His son, Joe, feels completely misunderstood, and his wife, Rachel, feels like a single parent. To make matters worse, his teen- age daughter, Carly, considers Douglas the enemy because he is representing a pharmaceutical company in their case against her social studies teacher, who is accused of burning down their lab to protest animal testing. "The Shaggy Dog" is good, clean, silly fun. It's aimed directly for the family crowd - and fami- lies with young kids, at that. Unlike the original film, this version milks much of its com- edy from Tim Allen struggling with his dog tendencies. Any- one who owns a dog should get a kick out of his antics. He defi- nitely gets in touch with his dog side and manages to spoof both Easter Lilies.& Other Easter Arrangements at EN'$ KomMm FcowEm$ n's 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday- Friday Saturdays 9 a.m. - noon 117 S.

When Douglas is the dog, he has a chance to see his family as they really are, learning that he hasn't been the best father and husband around. He also gains new insight into his animal rights case he's prosecuting, leading him to go after the vil- lainous pharmaceutical com- pany that's running illegal ani- mal experimentation. Things get really silly in this film with mutant animals abound, including snakes, rabbits, apes and frogs that have their own dog tendencies.
