Actress Kristin Davis accepted the role in new movie The Shaggy Dog because her grandmother approved of the family film. Davis' grandparent refused to watch her performances in raunchy TV series Sex And The City, and she is thrilled to be performing in something more respectable. She says, "I really wanted to make the film because I love dogs and I love comedy, and I'm happy that I can take my grandmother FLOSSIE to this film. "She is adorable and refuses to say the title of the show I used to be on, and of course she wouldn't watch it, so it's really nice that I can say, 'Let's take grandma to the movies.'"
