Storyline

"Heidi 4 Paws" is a live-action re-telling of Johanna Spyri's 1880 children's classic, "HEIDI", but with fully mouth-articulated dogs in all of the roles. "Heidi 4 PAWS" tells the story of the young orphan (this time as seen through the eyes of a yellow lab puppy) who is sent to live with her reclusive Grandfather (in this case an old sheepdog). Just as Heidi adjusts to her new life in the mountains, she is taken away by her social worker (a scrappy beagle). Heidi finds herself living in the big city with Clara Sesehound (a cockapoo mix), who has been made an invalid after a debilitating illness. Although Heidi comes to love Clara, her quest to return to the mountains dominates her stay. In the end, she is able to reunite with her beloved Grandfather. When Clara later comes to visit, the final miracle of Heidi's story is revealed when Clara regains her ability to walk. Written by Anonymous

Most disgusting Heidi adaptation ever made
24 April 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

There's no words to describe the idiocy of this movie. Who honestly thought it was a good idea to mix the Airbuddy sequels with literature classics!?

The plot is basically similar to that of the original book, but there's no way a fan of the original classic can enjoy it. It is butchered by americanized childish humor; if the writers were truly fans of literature and wanted to encourage children to read, why the hell did they feel like using the lowest possible form of humor?

On the other hand, I can see logic in their method. A movie so awful only encourages people to stay away from film adaptations. Or movies in general, for that matter.

Also, the CGI dog mouths are nightmarish. Uncanny valley at it's finest.
