This re­cent re­make of the orig­i­nal 1974 ca­nine clas­sic Benji is a very safe bet for par­ents with early pri­mary school­ers that need some en­ter­tain­ing. The key here is that the pooch play­ing the new Benji is just about the most adorable of the many tail-wag­gers to have taken this iconic role over the years. Just as im­por­tantly, the mys­tique of this ma­jes­tic mutt of no fixed pedi­gree (or ad­dress) re­mains in­tact: there is still no ex­pla­na­tion of how Benji can un­der­stand the English lan­guage bet­ter than you or I, and will al­ways gain ac­cess to a crim­i­nal hide-out when trained po­lice can­not. Run­ning time is just over 80 min­utes, also per­fect for the young’uns.
