Oh please....
9 November 2001 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

...social commentary? Family entertainment? Good children's movie? Surely this is propaganda typed by people loyal to the making of this piece of junk. On one bright note, there was some great acting... but none by humans

  • the dogs were pretty good. Yup, another 90 minutes of my life down the


drain. In a way, though, my life is better now 'cause i'll never hafta sit through this waste of film again.
