Very Good
9 November 2005 | by a_cinderellaSee all my reviews

A very good movie and I like it so much. Cynthia(Adrienne Carter) acts very well. She is so sweet. I want to know more about her. I have already seen it many times. This film is full of fun,friendship,magic,love and so on. The animals are so lovely. Well,I agree with the theme. The movie gave me a deep impression. Indeed,it's a cool movie.At the end of the movie,I almost tear. I believe you maybe saw this movie and have same thought with me. I hope to see more movies like this. I also want to have the similar experience,like say with the animals,it sounds good and cool. Actually,the dog's best friend is us,the animals' best friend should be us too.We should love them and protect them.
