Best Bets for Jan 18, 2016: Rufus

This new TV movie for kids turns the classic Disney "Shaggy Dog" formula on its head with its story of Manny (Davis Cleveland), who feels friendless after moving to a new school. When Manny finds a mysterious collar and puts it on family pooch Rufus, he suddenly morphs into a boy (Jace Norman, "Henry Danger"). The newly human Rufus easily makes new friends with his silly doggy habits such as chasing squirrels, but the jealous Manny soon learns Rufus' canine loyalty is as strong as ever. Haley Tju also stars.
