Animals are strictly forbidden at Andi and her little brother Bruce's foster home. But for Friday, the adorable dog they secretly care for, they're ready to risk everything. They finally find him an ideal shelter, a huge abandoned hotel that Bruce transforms thanks to his engineering genius. In what has become an incredible paradise for dogs, Friday is soon joined by all kinds of furry friends, so many in fact that their barks alert the neighbors...and the local pound, who can't understand the disappearance of all the stray dogs. Andi and Bruce will have to call on all their friends and all their imagination to stop the hotel's secret from being discovered. Written by
Nearly 70 dogs were used for the making of this motion picture, many of which were actually rescued from the pound. Several of them were adopted by crew members after filming wrapped. See more »
When Bruce first checks in Henry near the beginning of the movie, he writes Henry's name in green (at around 4 minutes) following Friday's name inscribed in a heart. Later when Bernie is reading from the check-in book, Henry's name is in red (at around 27 minutes) and follows Cooper. See more »

Saw this movie opening night. Took 5 kids and my wife and sis-in-law. all of us enjoyed it. very clean. enjoyable. hilarious at times and well written.
I normally hate child actors, but for once i was not annoyed. Emma Roberts is gorgeous. at 23, she looks young, but has moments in which she gives a glimpse of wisdom. her younger brother in the movie was very tolerable, and in fact delivered some excellent subtlety. neither over acted.
the social worker couple were very good while Lisa kudrow continues to amaze me that she even has a career. OK, now the part that matters: the dogs were hilarious, likable, and intriguing. the plot was very well done and for the first time in years, i am intrigued and eagerly anticipating the "making of" documentary on the DVD. excellent direction, pacing, and scripting.
