Movie Info

A lonely young boy's wish for the perfect companion goes hilariously awry in this family-friendly tale that urges viewers not only to be careful what they wish for -- but also how they wish it! When a mysterious professor arrives in town and informs young Tim that a legendary supernova with the power to grant a single wish is set to appear in the night sky, the young boy is certain that he will finally be granted the canine companion that he has longed for. Unfortunately for Tim, his once-in-a-lifetime wish misfires -- transforming the young lad into a dog instead of granting him a companion pooch. Will Tim be able to reverse the effects of the wish-granting supernova in time to enjoy Christmas with the family, or will he end up spending the holidays in the doghouse?

Audience Reviews for A Dog's Tale

Typically I'm not going to enjoy a movie where during the editing process, they can't match up the audio with the film. And I'm not talking about a half a second delay - this was a like an entire sentence behind. So, no, I didn't like this movie. (Where did Air Jaws 2 come from?!)
