doesnt anyone remember this movie?


I remember watching this when I was really young. I always loved animals so this movie was one i watched as often as possible. I remember the one dog was a white maltese or something and the worst part of the movie was when it got hit by a car. I cried everytime I saw that. I do vaguely remember the old lady(Hillie). Its been sooooooo long since I saw it. I would love to see it again. And the fact that OJ is in it is just too funny.

of all the things i miss, i miss my mind the most. "ozzy ozbourne"

I have been looking for this movie for years and years and now I finally found it here.

My mom has been trying to help me find this movie. She then told me to look up OJ Simpson and there it was.

From what she remembers OJ was mean to the dog. I don't recall anything from this movie except for the last line

Hambone running down the hill chansing the car with Hillie in and barking and barking she thens says "Stop the car, I know that bark anywhere"

Along the lines of tear-jerker 80's indie movies----SAVANNAH SMILES comes out on DVD September 26. Now we just need to get this to DVD.

yeah, it reminded me a lot of Benji, same brown and white dog from the movie

I've been looking for this movie my whole life. Now, I'm older and I still want it. More to show my Nieces and Nephews now than anything.

I've seen this film and I hated it. I thought it was a horrendous bunch of stomach-knotting sappy mush.

300 bios and counting.

I used to torture my little sister by turning this movie on whenever HBO showed it. There were enough scenes of dogs getting hit by cars and abused by OJ that she would cry. I thought it was funny at the time--not the animal abuse but the fits she would throw. I guess I feel bad about it now, but she turned out alright in the end.

For a children's film, this is unnecessarily harsh at times – plenty of death and abuse scenes, and a girl flipping the truck driver off mixed with the usual pablum in children's dog movies. And how does Hambone get to all those major cities? Most of the time, it's never explained. Oh well, I guess I'll be generous and give this 6/10 stars.
