This latest entry into Disney's pantheon of canine cinema has an English duke expiring within the first 20 minutes and leaving his estate and title to his manservant's dog ,Hubert, rather than to his greedy nephew and wife. Once kids recover from the sadness of the lovable codger's demise, they will enjoy the high jinks as the servant, Chives (James Doohan, a.k.a. "Scotty" to Star Trek fans) and his American niece (newcomer Courtnee Draper) combat the covetous couple's schemes in order to save the castle and their pet's title. Along the way, a Queen Elizabeth look-alike--complete with Welsh corgi--makes an appearance at an introductory ball that involves Sloppy Joe appetizers, flatulence, and humans waltzing with dogs. The niece has a chaste romance with a young duke masquerading as a local boy, and Hubert gets caught up in a love triangle between Cosette, the high-falutin' poodle, and Daisy, the down-to-earth basset hound. While billed as family entertainment, this 85-minute movie will have most parents thinking fondly back to Shaggy Dog sequels and Air Bud. (Ages 4 and older) --Kimberly Heinrichs
