In this comedy, the quiet life of an airplane pilot (Marshall Thompson) living in Switzerland is terribly disrupted when his sister gets married for the fourth time and bequeaths him her 250-pound St. Bernard. The bachelor and the big slobbery dog do not immediately become friends. Later they bond when the St. Bernard saves the bachelor’s life during an avalanche.
This is a terrific DVD and a fun watch. Jim Paulsen (Marshall Thompson) is an airplane pilot whose life dramatically changes when he takes on his sister’s 250-pound St. Bernard named George. They don’t hit it off immediately but later on, after George saves Jim’s life, they form a lasting friendship.
