Very cute for a kids' movie
25 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie Oct. 24, 2004, as part of the Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis, and I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually a huge fan of kid and dogs movies, and the flick is somewhat predictable, but it still tugged at my heartstrings. Without giving any details, there is a sad scene towards the end. I was sitting in a room full of kids while watching the movie, and you could hear them all sobbing. It was almost laughable.

The kids' acting is pretty good, the dog is cute, and the storyline is solid, as long as you don't think too critically about it. I'm guessing it won't win any Academy Awards, but I know lots of children who would really enjoy it, and I'd guess it will do well in the small fry crowd.
