Movie Info

In this outing, Benji finds himself on the loose in Athens. An international spy (Ed Nelson) places a secret oil formula within the folds of Benji's paw, and before the poor dog knows what's happening, he's being pursued through the ancient metropolis by a daunting variety of villains. Fortunately, Benji is smarter than his pursuers, so a happy ending is never in doubt. Writer/director Joe Camp managed to keep the Benji franchise alive into the 1980s, even writing a book about his filmmaking adventures with the clever canine.

Audience Reviews for For the Love of Benji

To think... At 9 years old, we kids cried to see this movie at the drive-in, but our cruel parents took us instead to a movie named "Star Wars", which forever changed us. Benji ended up being a dated forgettable movie. If our parents had given in to our tantrums, perhaps we'd have a roomful of Benji merchandise instead.

Wow, if it wasn't for Benji, this movie would have been a total flop. The story was weaker than the original, if you can imagine that. Still watching Benji do his thing was kind of cool.
