  • Overview
  • Details
Ben Soledad (Matthew Knight) is trying hard to fit in at his new school, but his only real friend is his border collie, Finn. His challenges only multiply when a faulty genetic experiment turns the faithful dog into another 13-year-old boy (Ryan Belleville). Once they adjust, however, Ben and Finn find there are plenty of skills they can learn from one another -- a couple of which may ultimately save Finn from the mad scientist next door.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that other than some juvenile jokes about dog farts, this movie is a good pick for tweens. Though there is bullying behavior, there is also modeling of kindness and teamwork -- something you don't find every day among this age group.

Sexual Content

While in human form, Finn does a doggie no-no when he sniffs a lady pedestrian's skirt and is slapped and called a "pervert." Kids hold hands.


Themes of kidnapping and laboratory testing, but handled mildly. Blow-darts hit the wrong targets, evil scientist conducts weird experiments, dogs chase after people. Ben's dad punches cousin Eddie when he thinks that he is a prowler.


Some potty humor and accompanying language: "fart," "farting," "butt," "poo," "sucks."

Social Behavior

Positive message about standing up for yourself, being a kind friend, and working as a team.


Ben drinks from a can of Coke. The kids play with Frisbees.
