Feeling alone and friendless, Isabel Sullivan befriends a stray dog named A.R.C.H.I.E. Though he looks like a normal dog, A.R.C.H.I.E. is actually a talking robotic canine that can run with blinding speed and has super strength and x-ray vision. They become an unstoppable team as Isabel and A.R.C.H.I.E. try to save their small town, and they create an unbreakable bond in the process.

Dove Review

Gather the family to watch this fun and charming movie about a dog of a different kind. A.R.C.H.I.E. is actually a robot. When he is stolen from the company from where he was invented, he first gets involved with a petty thief who loses him along the way. Isabel just moved to a small town where her Uncle is mayor, and she finds A.R.C.H.I.E.

The fun begins when A.R.C.H.I.E. becomes Isabel’s one true friend, and she finds out what a fantastic dog he really is. The story develops, as he saves her and the town from a con woman who wants to take over the quaint, little place and change it. But with A.R.C.H.I.E.’s help, along with his inventor, Brooke, and his friend Isabel and Aaron, they expose the con woman’s ideas for what they really are.

This is a comical family movie that young and old will enjoy. We are proud to award this movie with the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
