Featured Animal Action

Mr. Ben, the dog, is seen throughout the movie as Charlie's companion. In one scene, as Hellcop is trying to steal Rachel away, Mr. Ben leaps for Hellcop's throat, is knocked away and flies through the air to the ground in a silent heap. This scene was shot in cuts. Mr. Ben is seen as he starts to jump. When he is struck, it is actually a fake dog that flies through the air and lands on the ground. Other animal action is mild, such as Mr. Ben sitting, lying down, barking and walking.
