Actor Chevy Chase plays a private eye who is murdered and is returned to life as a dog ( Benji) to solve his own murder. Along the way he and actress Jane Seymour team up to discover a more intricate plot where they expose a love scandal between a very important man and a young girl for which the relationship between them could have potentially damaged this very important man's image. Actor Omar Sharif gives us a wonderful performance as the villain in this movie.
A plot reversal of a 1951 Dick Powell comedy called 'You Never Can Tell,' having the Chevy Chase style comedy, with Jane Seymour's beautifully exquisite performance and Benji, who is as adorable as ever, makes for a wonderful movie suited for the whole family.
