It's love at first sight when Rusty the Labrador and Cheri the Poodle meet one day while jogging in the park. Even better- their owners fall in love too! But love is more complicated for the people, Susan and Jake, who marry and attempt to join together their large family of five children. With kids fighting and a household in complete chaos, it's up to the dogs to keep the family together. Written by
The actors are great. We have grown up watching these actors in television shows and made for TV movies. The idea is good. Two dogs meet as do their widowed owners. He has children. She has children. No, it isn't Bradyesque but it could have been. The story is boring. We had expectations of more comedy, more family fun and more calamity. The storyline could have been so much better. Talking dogs have made good movies in the past and as the narrators of this "tail" humor could have been injected easily. This is somewhat of a Doris Day style movie but again it lacked the fun. It is a little to cute, a little to perfect, a little to yawn. We love Christmas movies and Hallmark has some of the best but I just wouldn't waste the time to watch this again.
