Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

This morning I watched Homeward Bound II: Lost In San Francisco - the live-action sequel to the remake of the movie adaptation of the book. ("The Incredible Journey" - two dogs and a cat trek across America to get home)

I'm impressed that the original author is still getting such a large credit.

Although duplicating its predecessor's plot, this outing did manage to get Robert Hays back onto an aeroplane again, although sadly without his famous drink problem.

There are some great lines in this...

At one point, there's a small pup who looks like Scrappy Doo protesting "Lemme at 'im! Lemme at 'im!" (the other animals they meet can talk in this one)

At another, the aging retriever Shadow mutters "I'm too old for this stuff", which I think is a family-friendly nod to the Lethal Weapon series.

But the top line surely has to be Robert Hays' declaration barely five minutes into this pet-pic:

"I still think it's crazy to fly three animals half way across the continent to some camping trip."

After that remark, this film cannot possibly fail to deliver upon expectations.
