Meet Dave (2008)
Dave Ming Chang, newly arrived in New York City, may be the ultimate fish out of water. He's forty-something, pleasant looking and nattily dressed, even if his attire--an all-white suit, black tie and a neat black handkerchief tucked in his pocket--harkens back to the disco-centric '70s. But beyond

Shaggy Dog, The (2006)
Hairy adventures begin as unbeatable Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas takes on his latest legal case--this time involving a criminal animal laboratory. It''s yet another ambitious assignment that will whisk workaholic Dave away from his wife and kids, who yearn for his attention. But when Dave is accidentally infected with a top-secret genetic-mutation serum that morphs his body into that of the family''s new pet Bearded Collie, everything he thought he knew about being himself and a part of his family changes. Now, with his perked-up ears, and his front-row seat on the household carpet, Dave is able to gain an entirely different perspective into his family''s secrets and dreams. Inspired by what he discovers, Dave wants nothing more than to stop fetching and return to fathering--only first he''ll have to stop the evil genius behind the serum--in a literally wild chase that will finally give him a chance to become man''s--and his family''s--and best friend.

Perfect Score, The (2004)
A group of six high school students band together and develop a plan to heist the SAT exam in order to prevent the test from unfairly defining who they''ll become. Each in the group has their own set of circumstances that leads them to one conclusion--the only way to truly decide their fate is to cheat the system. The unofficial leader of the group is Kyle, an aspiring architect who dreams of attending an Ivy League school, but repeatedly scores below what is required for acceptance. He develops the plan with his best friend Matty, whose low SAT scores result in a rejection from Maryland University, where his girlfriend attends. Anna, who desires to meet her parents'' standard of excellence, but is badly in need of some excitement, joins in and brings Desmond into the fold. Desmond is the star basketball player, who at the urging of his mother, decides to forgo the NBA for college, and needs to pass the SAT to get in. Providing the access inside the local education testing headquarters is Francesca, an anti-establishment girl, who joins in the scheme for kicks. Completing the group is Roy, a loner who wants in on the action after accidentally overhearing the plan. Although the kids seemingly share nothing in common, they band together and while getting to know each other, discover themselves in the process.
