Isn't it cats that are supposed to be from another planet? In this tween-targeted fantasy by first-time director John Robert Hoffman, the dogs are the aliens—they come from Sirius intent on world conquest. When a canine emissary named Hubble (voiced by Matthew Broderick) arrives to check on the progress of the invasion, he finds the troops have bonded with humans. His mission gets complicated when he starts enjoying life as the pet of a boy (Liam Aiken) neglected by his self-absorbed parents (Molly Shannon and Kevin Nealon). The special effects aren't too polished but the script is larded with cutesy life lessons to warm the hearts of dog lovers, and Cheech Marin, Carl Reiner, Delta Burke, and Brittany Murphy give entertaining vocal performances as curs and bitches of various breeds. 87 min.
Sorry there are no upcoming showtimes for Good Boy!
