When you think of guard dogs, you first think of German Shepherds: they are smart, lethal... but not good enough. Now we developed the new Emax3000. They are totally obsolete.

The version on USA Network includes scenes cut from the theatrical Version:
A scene where Lori and her boyfriend Perry are on couch on the first night with Max outside the patio door, where Lori remarks "look how he become attached to me already."
A scene where Lori does her last story on Max, just after Max dies in the scene in the Lab before we cut to three month later, where Lori meets with Rudy to show her the puppies.
Scene where Ray has his balls bitten off by Max is cut, jumps right to Emaxx lab scene right as Max goes for Ray.
In the TV Version, the scene when Max escapes, when Lori and Anne are in the lab when Dr. Jarret throws down his duffles to the floor as max ignores his commands to "enter" He says "damn it" instead of his real words "God damn it".
The scene of the mutilated mugger is removed; all you see are the detectives looking at the dead body.
The scene where Lori and Anne are trying to escape from Emaxx after being caught by the guard, when they reach parting elevator doors, revealing Dr. Jarret, "great" is substituted for Anne's original response, "shit".
Don't make the dog mad! That's ALL you have to do!!!
Man's Best Friend is about a genetically altered dog, undergoing a lab rat experiment, and winds up befriending one of the workers ( Ally Sheedy) From there, the dog winds up loose to the public, and, well, let's just say the dog is justifiable with its actions that it takes. Don't piss this dog off, that's all you have to do. Along the way, some vicious attacks take place. A kid hits the dog in the head with a newspaper, and a mailman sprays the dog for no reason at all. I can't say this little fur baby was out of line with anything....except what he did with the cat in the tree. That was WRONG! I don't even blame the dog for what it did to that bird, because that bird had a mouth for a beak! All in all, this was a great B rated film from writer director John Lafia ( Childs Play 2), and it kept the blood and slime to a minimum. My vote is 6 out of 10 stars. Remember....be nice to him. Pet the dog! Why couldn't anyone have just done that!
