Lenny: The Wonder Dog


Zach is having a bad day when all of a sudden he stumbles across the biggest surprise in his life. He meets an adorable dog in the park, however, this is no ordinary dog, this one can talk. The dog introduces himself as Lenny and explains his extraordinary abilities are attributed to a special device created by the Brainco corporation. Together Zack and Lenny set out on a heroic adventure to put a stop to the evil Dr. Wagner’s insane plan of world domination and bring down the Brainco Corporation.

Dove Review

Like many movies with talking animals, this is pretty run-of-the-mill. A kid finds a cute dog that just happens to talk and is being chased by an evil guy who wants to take over the world.

Lenny the talking dog finds Zack, who is different from the other kids, and he helps find people the doctor wants him to find. The comical thugs are after them; the dog and boy and a girl friend investigate the information to solve the mystery.

Graig Ferguson plays the insane, odd Dr. Wagner much like the zany character on his late night show. But with two bubbling sidekicks, Dr. Wagner tries to get the micro chip from the dog and this sets up the hilarious story.

Although this is an off-the-wall comedy that is geared toward the family, it cannot be family approved due to some language issues. See content listing below.
