Four dogs play the character of Wrolf. They all had their fur dyed so they looked identical, and each dog had it own talents. One was particularly good at barking, another at licking, one at running and one was good at just lying around. See more »

I really found this movie to be a fantastic fairytale! I love fairytale movies, and this one was quite creative and the acting was also very good! I have been quite disappointed with many of the recent fairy tale like movies that have come out, when even the story line could be good, the acting has been horrible. I hate it when, even in a fairy tale, the acting seems unrealistic. The whole point of a fairytale is take the viewer away into a magical world and make them believe it is real! This movie does that quite well! This movie is a must see for anyone who enjoys escaping for a bit into a believable yet make believe world! :) Highly recommended! :)
