Browning is a PI with a bad cold, who's sent to investigate a case by a mysterious client.He stumbles across the body of a young woman and is stabbed to death, and when he wakes up in heaven, they tell him he's "marginal material," and they can only decide on his final destination through one last assignment: to go back and solve his own murder. As a dog. A cute fluffy little dog (Benji). Undaunted, Browning begins to investigate the case as best he can around his canine disabilities (dialing the phone presents a special challenge) to solve the murders, save the girl, and see justice done.Written by

Earlier, however, when scouting the scene of the crime, he looks at the desk calendar and sees that it's mid-October, so really Becket's birthday was less than five months ago or away. See more »

I love this movie. It's got the cheesiest soundtrack (I'm pretty sure it's Paul McCartney and Wings), totally dating it that way, but it's got some pretty funny moments. Seeing Benji and having Chevy Chase involved in the same movie makes for all-around fun. Added bonus for those who like mysteries. This is a romance-mystery-comedy combo. Rent it.
