Not a typical romantic comedy
11 August 2003 | by cass-29See all my reviews

You know how every romantic comedy has the same basic plot line? This one is actually very different. A seeing-eye dog (Shiro) is granted one wish by his former owner. He chooses to become a human for a short time so he can find the girl who trained him as a puppy. While attempting to get to know her (as he runs along behind her and sniffs for her around town) he eventually falls in love with her. It sounds very strange, but it actually plays out as a very sweet, quirky comedy. (It doesn't hurt that Shiro in his human form is played by the always handsome Etsushi Toyokawa.) I found the movie to be quite enjoyable, and it was a nice change from the norm in this genre.
