Bertinelli has little to do in this crime fighting parody., 15 June 2003
Author: Stanbabe from Mamaroneck,New York,USA
In this spoof of crime fighting gadgetry and corrupt business execs. Wesley Euire (Best rememebed as "Will Marshall"on the 1970's version of The Kroft Bros.and NBC TV's "Land Of The Lost Show!")creates a bionic dog, Which he programs to protect property and people from intruders.
A large crime wave hits the city and Euire tries to impress his not too understanding boss "Mr.Norton" (played by former "Maude"and "Different Strokes" actor Conrad Bain) with his new invention. His efforts are not too well received by Mr. Norton. But it takes some crooked doings by Bain's competitor (played delightfully by the late Mr. Jim Backus) and his two bumbling henchmen (played by the equally delightful Chuck McCann and Red Buttons) and alot of persuasion from Bain's Daughter"Casey" (Valerie Bertinelli) to get Bain to ultilize Mr. Euire's crime fighting dog device.
Bertinelli's performances are sadly limited to a few scenes Where she fights with her onscreen father to get him to use "Chomps"and she bills and coos with Mr. Euire. Other than these minor sequences, The rest of the film centers on Euire's attemps to get his device to work right, And the bumbling capers of McCann, Backus and Buttons are the real stars of this minor film comedy from Cartoon producers The late Mr. William Hanna and Mr. Joesph Barbera.
