Bad Acting
8 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good story. But the horrible acting kind of ruined it.

Sherman Hemsley was the only believable person in the movie.

The rest of the people just weren't good.

You could tell they were all inexperienced. None of the conversations in the movie were convincing. It was almost like watching a school play.

I found myself getting annoyed with the actors.

However, the if the acting had been better, this would have been a cute movie. The storyline was very sweet. And anyone who has a dog that's like part of their family would probably have enjoyed the story.

If you're like me and think the acting in the movie is a VERY important part of the movie, then this film isn't for you. At all.
