48 hour to go, I had no idea this movie was eve made.

I was over YouTube when stumble on to it , I just checking out for others movies.

As it was not a long movie . I gave it watch last night.

I thought animation was really good for time and I do t think it was as bad at all.

I liked the fact there was dog in the movie , I found those parts really funny and fun to watch

However I felt liked the voices of the person playing seemed a little bored . When he was speaker into now and again.

Ii am not fan of musicals. Movies at all , I did really like any if the so Gavin the movie at.

The rest of the movie was just average 5/10
