The new family film I Heart Shakey (starring Steve Lemme, Steve Guttenberg, Beverly D’Angelo, Alfonso Arau, and Rylie Behr) is a family film about a 35-year-old widower named J.T. O’Neil, his precocious 10-year-old daughter and their devoted mutt Shakey. After moving from a small town to Chicago and missing the fine print in their rental contract, J.T. is forced to try and get rid of his loveable pooch. Shakey and Chandler won’t have it and hatch a plan to keep Shakey and teach J.T. a valuable lesson about loyalty and the importance of keeping family together.
