Unobjectionable but bland computer animated story of dog and his unlikely friends -- a rabbit, a snail, a cow and a train -- who set out on an adventurous journey to find three diamonds that will release the pooch's best friend from an icy imprisonment and prevent a villainous wizard from freezing the sun. Co-directors Jean Duval, Frank Passingham, and Dave Borthwick's originally British film has been re-voiced with a big-name American cast (including Whoopi Goldberg, Chevy Chase and William H. Macy), and there's a commendable message about "friendship being the best weapon," but toddlers -- and even their indulgent parents -- may find this a tired retread of many other superior films. Some mild scenes of peril. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is G -- general audiences. All ages admitted.
