    The title isn’t exactly P.C. but this is a beautiful film any dog lover will be thrilled to own, and watch again and again.

    Although it was fine a few days ago this (and quite a few others) no longer seems to be able to play. The control bar indicates a 0:00 running time.

    A charming, well-made live action by Disney Studios. Like Bob Verini, I blanched at the politically incorrect reference to calling a Mexican dog a “wetback,” but it does not detract very much when enjoying the great cinematography.
