An entertaining family film about a lovable canine friend.

"BENJI is one of the finest films made about the trials and errors of society, as seen through the eyes of a cute male canine. This pooch wants nothing more than friendship and understanding from his daily interactions with the human species. He befriends a pair of siblings and their housekeeper who call him Benji and treat him as a respected family member.
Through the course of the film, we are given a dramatic presentation of canine emotions and perceptions, showing how closely a dog's world resembles our own. Benji develops a romantic interest as well. He is undoubtedly the hero of this story, as he courageously comes to the rescue of his human friends after they are kidnapped. There are some intense moments in the film dealing with the horrors of abduction, but through it all, Benji comes out the winner and is given his due recognition.
This film is highly recommended for family viewing. Both old and young will probably find it a worthwhile lesson of life and its challenges through the eyes of "man's best friend".
A blast from my past

"Truly a nostalgic trip back to my childhood - the film is just as engaging as I remember (although a little more violent than I recalled, with the kids getting kidnapped and Benji's poor girlfriend pooch getting literally kicked to the side at one point) All in all a very cute and engaging tale of a lone dog and his world. My toddler LOVES Benji (and almost all dog movies)"
