Funny and Great Disney Entertainment
I have to admit that I am a little older than most of the fans of this show but I have absolutely fallen in love with Jess-A (I mean Jessie) and every single one of the characters on it. The first episode I saw was episode 2, The Talented Mr. Kipling, and I do not think I stopped laughing or chuckling the entire time.
In my opinion, whatever that's worth, this is a great series for kids and all those who just want a good laugh. If you don't think it's funny then all I gotta say is...WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? Just kidding! I also think that Debby Ryan has a great future ahead of her as she is extremely talented and funny. So here's hoping for a long run to this great series as it is definitely one of the best shows on the Disney Channel especially since Wizards of Waverly Place is coming to an end. I highly recommend this entertaining and funny show!!!
A Dog Named Christmas (2009)
Not nearly as good as Pictures of Hollis Woods or most other Hallmark Hall of Fame Movies
Okay, here's my critique of A Dog Named Christmas. Two years ago, there was another Hallmark Hall of Fame movie that came out at this time of year and that was Pictures of Hollis Woods and I have to say that this movie falls incredibly short. Now, I don't mean to get off on a rant here, but while A Dog Named Christmas is a sweet movie about a stubborn man who doesn't want to get close to another dog, the problem is, I am left wondering why I should even care. I mean to really like this move you have to be a dog lover and get over the fact that there's nothing new or original, nothing that pops out at you and tugs at your heart strings. There are no special moments that almost if not actually bring tears to your eyes, such as in Pictures of Hollis Woods. To like Hollis Woods all one has to do is love people, love children, love humanity in general. This is one reviewer who has a soft spot in his heart for orphans. Kids who don't know, have never known, or have lost that all too important connection that a family brings into their lives. From Punky Brewster to Annie and now to Hollis Woods. There's something beautiful about that moment in those programs when that child finds a home, and a family to love them. Hollis Woods subject matter is more important and hard hitting than that of A Dog Named Christmas, including the subplot of a woman's plight with the onset of Alzheimer's. Still, don't get me wrong, A Dog Named Christmas is good for what it is, a movie about a dog, but unfortunately it falls dramatically short of the emotional, heartfelt beauty that is Hollis Woods or many other Hallmark Hall of Fame movies. The acting in A Dog Named Christmas is fair but not spectacular. The only good actor whose character we really get to know is the father played by Bruce Greenwood. The only problem is this viewer had a rather difficult time liking him on account of his stubborn and contrite attitude. The rest of the cast of characters gets left out in the cold or at the very least become stagnant and unimpressive. While in Hollis Woods, every single character including Beatrice, Josie's friend, is important and seems to come alive on the screen. The most impressive being that of the title character, Hollis Woods. Jodellle Ferland is an extremely talented young actress that takes what she is given and goes all the way with it. While most of the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie are marvelous in presentation, the only other of these movies that this reviewer has seen that comes close to being as emotional and heartfelt is Follow the Stars Home starring Kimberly Williams. Another beautiful movie. So all in all A Dog Named Christmas is a sweet but unimpressive film that will be easily forgotten. Furthermore, it falls short of the usual splendor that is A Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. At least that's my opinion, I could be wrong.
