Warning: If your child has already been pleading for a dog, watching “Trooper and the Legend of the Golden Key” may obliterate your resistance.
The family-friendly film stars Guich Kooch as the voice of Trooper the bloodhound, the film’s wise, Texas-accented narrator and main character.
Trooper, along with a chihuahua, Dash, are adopted by the new kid in town, Tommy (Joey Roberts), and the trio go off with magnifying glass in hand in search of a valuable treasure rumored to have been hidden by an eccentric collector. Along the way, many funny and suspenseful moments are unleashed as they save the town’s beloved bookstore from destroction by the evil plotting of the greedy mayor. This dog and child actor have such chemistry, we wondered if they would team up again for another tail, er, tale?
“Trooper and the Legend of the Golden Key” DVD, $14.98, www.amazon.com.
