I remember seeing this movie back in 2000 when it came out in theaters. My memories are a bit faded, but since the dog Skip was similar to my then-dog Chip in name and appearance I wanted to go see it.
Funny enough Skip was a Jack Russell terrier which is the same breed as my current dog Zelda. I loved the scene where Skip is "driving" the car in public.
I don't remember much else due to faded memories, but I liked the 1940s setting.
