Storyline

Summer school, what a bummer! That is what Mason, Aidan, Maddie, Melinda and Luke are thinking on the first day of school. Bored, the five of them are daydreaming about what they might be doing if they weren't in school. But when a cute little stray pup they name Chewy wanders into their school, the days are anything but boring. The four of them must unite to help keep Chewy out sight of the principal, Ms. Thistle. What ensues is an elaborate game of hide- and-seek as they not only try to keep Chewy from being discovered, but also clean up the messes he leaves behind. The kids come up with one creative hiding place after another, even enlisting the help of school staff members to keep Chewy's presence under wraps. This game of hide-and-seek can't last forever, or can it? Or will Ms. Thistle catch on to their little secret, and capture them red handed in possession of The Stray? Written by Larry & Stan

For kindergarten to 5th graders only
11 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best thing about this film is the dog...we only liked the film when the dog was on the screen.. .bad acting, bad directing, but kids would love it.

I picked it up at red box just because the cute puppy on the box...this dog is not in the movie.....the adults are lame and worse than the kids....but then kids would not care.

Too much lame dialog and not enough of the dog

This should stay on Saturday movie shows for kiddie shows.

Please send copies of this movie to schools so kids can see it. They will enjoy watching stupid teachers lame dialog.

Putting a said puppy as milked in the movie...in a cage to small or locker for it....is torture.

Not for the dog but for adults watching this.
