Dean Jones, Tim Conway, Suzanne Pleshettte, and Keenan Wynn star in THE SHAGGY D.A. Disgusted by the shady dealings of not-so "Honest" John Slade (Wynn), Wilby Daniels (Jones) decides to run for District Attorney, but when robbers steal the magic Borgia ring that "dogged" Wilby as a teenager, the fur really begins to fly! Once again, Wilby keeps turning into a large, talking sheepdog at the worst possible moments when the ring's magical incantation is read aloud. And when dirty trickster Slade discovers Wilby's secret, the race is on to see who can get their paws on the ring first! Packed with nonstop laughter for the entire family, THE SHAGGY D.A. promises -- and delivers -- sidesplitting fun!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there's some 1970s-era smoking and beer drinking in a bar. There's also some mild peril. The bad guys are pretty crooked, stealing and cheating to keep control of the local government. Actually, more of this comedy is concerned with the adult world than a kid's world. In fact, there's only one kid in the whole movie! Kids will like the slapstick and dog moments, though.
