I LOVED Benji growing up. I had an almost life-size stuffed animal of him and rented the 2nd movie in the semi-series, For the Love of Benji, so many times that I’m sure my sister can’t stand him. The trailer looks adorable and pulls the same heartstrings. And guess what? The son of the original director is directing!
