Movie synopsis

Ten year-old dog walker Owen (Liam Aiken) takes a trip to the pound and picks out an adorable, pensive mutt he decides to call "Hubble." What Liam doesn't know is that Hubble has just arrived from Sirius (The Dog Star) for the purpose of checking up on the canine colonization that began thousands of years ago. A trip to Hubble's crashed spacecraft allows Liam to hear his new pal's voice (Matthew Broderick), along with those of the five dogs he routinely walks: robust Boxer Wilson (Donald Faison), jittery Italian Greyhound Nelly (Brittany Murphy), flatulent Burmese Mountain Dog Shep (Carl Reiner), and high-maintenance Poodle Barbara Ann (Delta Burke). Hubble is greatly troubled to discover that his kind have become pets on Earth, a fact that he is rather nervous to have to report to his leader, the Greater Dane (voiced by Vanessa Redgrave)--who will be arriving on Earth very shortly to check up on the colonization.A family film that provides ample amusement for dog lovers of any age, GOOD BOY is as close as anyone will get to hearing man's best friend talk. The illusion was skillfully created by the reliable Jim Henson Creature Shop, and young Aiken's performance makes the illusion all the more believable. The vocal talents of Broderick, Murphy, Faison, Reiner, and Burke give distinct personalities to their characters, with each getting their own moment to shine.

Adorable, Funny and Thought Provoking!!

Created: 01/10/06
This cute and spunky family movie is a must-see if you like to laugh together! An alien ship crashes to earth and the "creature" inside the craft makes his home here on Earth, hoping to get home soon. But while he waits for contact from his home planet, he's definitely not alone. He's surrounded by fellow aliens!

No more spoilers here though!! But I will say this...the movie is laugh-out-loud funny! There are some bits of crude humor regarding bodily functions, but if your kids (and husbands) are anything like mine, they'll love it! Talking dogs, heroic kids and a wonderful storyline makes this movie a must-buy!

Good Boy - great for kids and grandparents!!

Created: 15/08/09
I bought this movie because my ten year old grandson saw a preview and had to see it. This is the way we buy a great many movies at our house but this time we had a winner. The human lead was played by a super young actor (whose name eludes me) and Hubbel, the canine lead, carried his role very well also. You will enjoy trying to figure our which actors play the Greater Dane, her prime minister, etc.

I bought this for my 2-yr. old grandson even tho I had not heard of it. He loves dogs so I took a chance on it. It is an adorable movie with the cutest dogs. Grandson loves it and I like it too. It has some jokes that us older folks can enjoy. Has a good story and the dogs really look like their talking!
