Suckers (2002, comedy and slapstick)
In this low-budget, low-brow Latino yuk-fest about the bad guys vs. the good guys in the Los Angeles barrio, Weezo the ferret (played by Weezo) comes to the aid of a poor sucker (Danny De La Paz) just when he needs help the most. The movie is not about Weezo, but the charming little sable is featured in several scenes (swimming in the pool, enjoying a Mexican meal, etc.).
Do you have the volume up, on your computer? If so, that sound you hear is ferrets. Ferrets "dook" or "chuckle" — they do not, as the movies always depict, squeak like a rodent. In fact, ferrets are not even in the rodent family. They are mustelids. Want to know more? Go to FerretWare.com (and thank you, Hildy Langewis, for letting me borrow your ferret sounds!).
