If you’ve ever wondered if knowing what your dog thought would be fun the
answer, by the evidence provided in Think Like A Dog, would be no.
Taking its inspiration from films such as Look Who’s Talking and Freaky
Friday, Think Like A Dog is a film that’s short on laughs and pretty much
devoid of any emotion.
Twelve-year old Oliver (Gabriel Bateman) is a tech wizard who manages to
create a device that allows him to have a telepathic connection with his
dog Henry (voiced by Todd Stashwick). As the bond between boy and dog
becomes closer and the pair learn about each other they set about trying to
save Oliver’s parents (an under used Josh Duhamel & Megan Fox)
Meanwhile to add some tension to the whole thing a cyber businessman called
Mr Mills (Kunal Nayyar) arrives on the scene in order to get his hands on
Think Like A Dog appears to be aimed at undemanding young kids who like
jokes about farting dogs and dog pooh or long lingering shots of a dog
panting with its tongue hanging out. For everyone else Think Like A Dog is
hard to recommend.
