Good Boy! is a fun and heartwarming family comedy from 2003 that follows the story of an adventurous and intelligent dog named Hubble, who comes to Earth from a distant planet to evaluate the planet and determine if dogs are capable of ruling over humans as their rightful masters. The movie stars Liam Aiken as Owen Baker, a lonely boy who wants nothing more than to have a dog of his own, Matthew Broderick as the voice of Hubble, and Molly Shannon as the eccentric animal control officer who discovers Hubble's secret.

The movie begins with Owen, a young boy who's struggling to make friends and fit in at school. He's always wanted a dog, but his mother won't let him have one. One day, Owen takes matters into his own hands and adopts a stray dog he names "Hubble" after the telescope. However, Hubble is not just an ordinary dog – he's an alien sent to Earth to perform a mission that could ultimately lead to the takeover of Earth by dogs.

As Hubble begins to explore the planet and gather data, he discovers that humans aren't as easy to manipulate as he initially thought. Along the way, he befriends some of the local dogs and teaches them how to communicate with humans using a special device. Hubble also forms a close bond with Owen, who he sees as his loyal assistant and the key to completing his mission.

The movie delivers a strong message about the power of friendship and the importance of having loyalty and trust in relationships, as Hubble learns the value of true friendship and love while trying to carry out his mission. Along with the fun and adventures, the movie also touches on themes of loneliness, fitting in, and acceptance.

One of the standout aspects of the movie is the fantastic voice acting from Matthew Broderick, who brings Hubble to life in a way that captures his innocence, curiosity, and intelligence. There's also great chemistry between Aiken and Broderick, which helps to convey the bond between the boy and his canine companion.

Molly Shannon also delivers a fun and memorable performance as the quirky animal control officer who becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth about Hubble's origins. Her character adds a comedic element to the movie that balances out the more emotional moments.

The movie is visually impressive, with stunning CGI effects that bring Hubble and the other alien dogs to life. The scenes featuring the dogs communicating with each other and the humans are particularly well done and add a sense of wonder and excitement to the movie.

Overall, Good Boy! is a movie that's sure to delight dog lovers of all ages. It has a great mix of humor, adventure, and heart that makes it a fun and enjoyable family movie. While it may not be a cinematic masterpiece, its message about the power of friendship and its charming cast of characters make it a movie worth watching.
