I absolutely loved Jake & Jasper: A Ferret Tale!!! I thought Connor Stanhope and Falcor (the ferret) were totally believable as bonded pals, and Falcor/Jasper was amazingly CUTE and smart. I was left wanting MORE though. This movie had a great storyline which I am sure was a difficult one to condense into such a short film. However, I think Alison Parker and her editors and assistants took a difficult task of getting so much into such a short space and came up with a very entertaining result. Bravo to all of you involved in the making of this film. Being in the family category I think it will be very well received. I know my family thoroughly enjoyed it, young and old.
Thank you SOOOO much for bringing a well done short story about a ferret and "his boy" to the movie world. They are amazing and wonderful little pets, and do not get enough recognition.
