Don't keep this film undercover, show it proudly to your family, everyone will love it!
21 May 2007 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Max is the son of two lawyers who used to work for the State Department. Now, the family has moved to a midwest town and the parents are in private practice. Nevertheless, a very pretty secret agent lady has been assigned to take Max to school, instead of letting the young tweenager ride on the school bus. Max is a very bright child but he has an even more surprising talent....he can talk to animals! He has a beagle named Beau and an orange cat named Nellie and the three of them engage in conversations all of the time. However, when his parents observe Max talking to his pets, they are dismayed, for they, naturally, do not believe that their son can converse with these animals. One day, on a trip to the park with Beau, Max and his beloved beagle meet some strange men and their German Shepherd dog. The large canine tells Beau and Max that the men are bad dudes, about to kill the President of the U.S. when he stops to campaign in the town next week. Will anyone, anyone, believe Max when he tries to warn the city's officials of this threat? This is a very nice family film, especially for those who love animals. The dog and cat in this movie are adorable and extremely talented, delighting the audience at every turn. The principal actors are mostly unknowns (with the exception of Erick Avari, a thespian of countless movies and shows) but they play their parts very well. The production looks great, with nice costumes, scenery, and photography, while the script is full of action and humor. In short, this film should not be undercover as far as your loved ones are concerned. Everyone, from the smallest to the grayest, will enjoy this wonderful, very family-friendly film, so bring it to them soon, very soon!
