Benji: The Classic Loveable Stray Dog Movie

When I was a kid, Benji was top-tier entertainment. Imagine my surprise when Netflix released a sixth Benji movie. So I had to watch it.

Quick Summary~


Benji is a cute puppy who was separated from his family by the pound. Flash-forward and he’s an adult stray. He gets pseudo-adopted by two siblings who lost their dad and really just want to buy back their dad’s watch as a surprise for their mom. Mom is struggling with bills and being a single parent and definitely doesn’t want a dog. Unfortunately, the kids get kidnapped during a jewelry heist because they saw the bad guys’ faces. Now it’s a rescue mission between Benji, mom, and a random cop.
