Family Movie
10 November 2012 | by (Laguna Woods, CA) – See all my reviews

I totally enjoyed this movie. I recommend that dog lovers of any age watch this movie. They will really get pleasure from and fall in love with Chilly (the dog).

Children from age 5 will enjoy the clowning around of the young boy and his friends trying to teach the dog tricks. It is hilarious.

This movie would be a good break for parents to keep young children entertained. Chill Christmas is the type of movie that you could play again and again and young children would never get bored.

I ordered my Chilly Christmas from Amazon.com. I was able to track the status of my order online. And, received the movie in a reasonable time delivered to my door.
