Goofs

When the cops are investigating the crashed car, Margaret the cat is seen standing on a fence post, from behind, overlooking the scene. She lifts up one front paw, and the shot cuts to seeing Margaret from the front, where both front paws are down. When the shot returns to filming Margaret from behind, she still has one front paw in the air, and then puts it down. See more »

Simple combo, bereaved children, lots of animals, love interest
21 October 2003 | by (Burlington, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This is a simple children's movie with all the classic Disneyesque components, evil nephew trying to get his hands on his late aunts estate, kind hearted woman trying to save all the animals and implants from the big city relocating to "start over". It's not that great - I only watched it because of the cat - the acting was rather wooden and although i was fooled by the New York licence plates, my instincts were still good - it was Canadian, wooden - why is it that we Canucks can do brutal stuff well like 'life after billy' and the story of the Christian Brothers abuse, but we do general stuff so badly - I'm not sure if it's just poor directing (after all we have great canadian actors who go on to make in in other milieus) Anyway, simple stuff for kids, no one ends up dead (except the ghosts of course!)
