Benji: Off the Leash! :- Watch Benji: Off the Leash! on Youtube on Fire, Three unlikely, unsuspecting souls who come face-to-face with that moment in their lives when they must stand and be counted. For Sheldon, it’s difficult because he doesn’t appear to be the brightest guy in the world (although he might be the funniest). For Colby, it’s even more difficult because he’s only 14 years old, and up against enormous odds. For Benji, it’s almost impossible–because, after all, he’s just a dog, lost and alone, with nothing but a belligerent bird and a bungling stray mutt to help. A band of unlikely comrades, brought together by the least likely of the bunch, for a common, courageous purpose. Things will change. Lives will be saved. Because Benji is off the leash! Benji is born. Is born from a black prized breeder owned by an abuser who cares only for money. Benji is taken away by the greedy man’s son and two years later Benji finds out his mother is sick and tries to get 2 bumbling animal catchers that save pets that are on the streets to find his mother and bring the bad guy to justice with the help of a dog with an extremely long tongue and a parrot. I took my granddaughter to see Benji, Off the Leash yesterday and was reminded of the fun movies I used to go see as a child. Disney, Kurt Russell, Fred MacMurray, Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette. While Benji gets the credit in the title, the story is really about how our lives are intertwined and the wrongness of hurting others (especially animals) for any reason. My granddaughter and I also discussed how you can’t always assume to know a person until you really get to know them. For example the two “bumbling dog catchers” turned out to be the nice guys, showing tremendous love and compassion for “Puppy’s” mom.
