Poster for the movie "Paws"
83 min - Adventure, Family, Fantasy - 25 September 1997
Our rating:

An Australian family film in which the dog is the star. PC is a Jack Russell of superior intelligence and some friends who recognise his potential wire him up to a few bits from an old computer in order to translate his barks into speech (with the voice provided by Billy Connolly).

With a murder mystery, a kidnapping and a missing fortune to which the dog could provide the key, the film is amiable innocuous entertainment.
