Netflix never ceases to amaze me
29 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is a movie they titled "Christmas Puppy" and showed a Lab Puppy with a Santa hat on the cover. This dog never appeared in the movie and in fact there was NO PUPPY in it.

There was one dog in it however a senior maltese mix that was so old it never got off of it's doggy bed the whole movie.

I blame Netflix because Netflix controls what it chooses to air. Other than that you can watch some terrible acting and a movie that looked like it was shot using an iphone.

I won't knock each of the actors appearing in this movie as a paycheck is a paycheck. There was however a look-a-like Angela Lansbury and phony Mike Schmidt in it. They did manage to get the real Marcia Brady and an old Baywatch chick.

WOW, what a stinker. I thought Netflix could get no worse, I was wrong.
