Audience Reviews for The Shaggy D.A.


I remember this movie being BIG with us school kids in pre-Star Wars 1976, but it wasn't anything great. I doubt kids care much about the world of public offices and just want to see the dumb doggie effects; but Dean Jones made a big ugly mutt. Now forgotten.

Amusing Disney fun.

Super Reviewer

Dean Jones is perfect for his role of the Shaggy D.A. Possibly one of my favorite Disney movies, but, it now shows its age.
