Bingo ★★½ 1991 (PG)

Mediocre spoof of hero-dog movies. The heroic title mutt roams from Denver to Green Bay in search of his absentminded master, with numerous absurd adventures en route. Some cute moments, but sometimes Bingo is just lame-o. Good family fare. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Cindy Williams, David Rasche, Robert J. Steinmiller Jr., David French, Kurt Fuller, Joe Guzaldo, Glenn Shadix; D: Matthew Robbins; W: Jim Strain; M: Richard Gibbs.
