Storyline

It's "Christmas time" at the Baker household, and Bailey is at it again. Worried that he will not get any presents from Santa because he's been a bad doggie, Bailey learns about a mysterious Native American Indian called the "Handsome Fellow," who may be able to make his Christmas wishes come true. With thoughts of tennis balls, stuffed animals and more dog bones then he can count, he sets out to find this legend, inadvertently dragging his brother along for the ride. But when Bailey's misguided missteps cause harm to Duke and even threaten their family's Christmas plans, Bailey must not only find a way to save his brother, but he is also forced to make a big decision... one that just might enable him to finally understand the "true" meaning of Christmas.

Cute Story if you can get past the terrible acting
22 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bought this because my 3 year old loves the live animal children's movies. The overall story is cute enough but only if you can stomach the terrible, forced acting by these 'actors'. My son was easily bored when it came to the human only scenes. The adults with their rigid, unnatural dialog and lack of chemistry all the way down to the little girl with the lisp, who was forced, awkward, unenjoyable and who's character made no sense.

The character of Truman was well played although the actor Trey Bumpass seemed bored half the time, his chemistry with Bailey was very sweet and enjoyable to watch. I would love to see him in something more challenging, he seems to have the natural talent ability and looks for TV and film. If it weren't for him saving the film, I'd consider it a massive flop and whoever was in charge of casting should be fired.

Overall, I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this DVD. I should have waited for Santa Paws 2 because at least there, the acting isn't forced. It makes me wonder if this was a production put one of those unqualified acting schools that gives work to their actors only if they pay for involvement.

But if you are able to see past forced, terrible acting, then by all means buy it.
