Homeward Bound 2: Lost In San Francisco

This follow-up to the well-received remake of the Disney family favourite that screened on TV2 recently has the trio of domestic animals on the road again.

The animals talk through the voices of notable actors, but their mouths don't move ala Babe.

The story this time has the three pets, Chance the bulldog (Michael J Fox); Persian cat Sassy (Sally Field) and Golden Retriever Shadow (Grandpa Walton Ralph Waite, taking over from Don Ameche, who died after making the first Homeward Bound) getting, er, Lost In San Francisco when their family goes on holiday.

It's not quite up to the high adventure of the cross country original, but San Francisco makes for photogenic surroundings and the kids should be enraptured.
