Cute, If Average Family Movie…
21 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's not much to this film. It's simply a saccharine sweet animal ABC Family Channel type movie.

Being that I love both dogs, AND Halloween, I figured this would be right up my alley. It's pretty much what I expected to see; Dad's crazy, misinterpreted motives and misunderstandings, cute dog is the smartest living being in the whole movie… Pretty much any standard cliché laid down by Walt Disney is brought to the fore here… But the results aren't all that unpleasant.

I felt Elisa Donovan made the movie… For me, anyhow. The two bumbling burglars also brought chuckles.

Apparently this is third in a "Dog Who Saved (insert holiday here)____________ Movies.

While I did like this film, I won't go out of my way to find the others in this series.

I guess I should note that I don't have any children. I might have given this film a much higher rating had I watched it with the eyes of a parent. But it is what it is.

Happy Halloween!
