A family adopts a dachshund from the shelter. Before long they enter her into wiener dog races and learn their dog’s heritage as well as the integrity of the races. Starring Jason London, Julian Feder, Alicia Witt, Morgan Fairchild
I’ll admit the only reason I watched this movie was because it was about dachshunds. I wish I hadn’t. This film would be great for young kids but tedious for adults. I couldn’t wait for it to end. I felt bad for Jason London, who was too good of an actor for this role and it showed. He looked out-of-place and looked like he felt out-of-place. Morgan Fairchild, however, looked more comfortable in her role. I was also very surprised that the children were open to a romantic interest for their dad when their mother must have just died. I believe that was hinted at when the father lost his job. Hence, if you love dogs I would say see it but if you are an adult only watch for the dachshunds.
