A developmentally challenged young man with a penchant for caring for animals in need sets out to convince his family - and their whole rural community - to participate in a local shelter's inaugural "Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program."
a little too focused on family subplots,not enough on the storms,for my taste
this movie is too melodramatic at times and gets bogged down in dialogue and subplots that don't really advance the story,in my opinion.the acting is not bad,especially from Noel Fisher who plays Jeremy Landis,the teenage son of the lead female character Dr.Valery Landis(Joanna Pacula)a weather specialist.there is at least 1 positive thing about the movie,and that is the scenes involving the lightning storms.the effects are fairly well done, int his regard.i certainly didn't hate this movie,but i do wish it had focused more on the storm aspect than the family issues.it kind of felt like 1 of those 'Lifetime' channel movies.if you don't mind that kind of movie,then you will probably like this 1.if not,you might want to avoid it.i'd have to say this movie is average,so 5/10 seems fair.
