great family movie
19 July 2013 | by kcvtbSee all my reviews

Our dachshunds really enjoyed seeing their friends, but our humans thought it was sweet and simple and charming, well above expectations. Morgan Fairchild was meant to be a pain, but the other actors were none of them famous but were surprisingly charming and relaxed and attractive. For a really simple, really inexpensively made, really predictable movie, this one turned out to be way better than we expected. It looks like the hot dog stand chain that is featured in the movie really exists and maybe even runs these races. But it was just a very happy movie to watch. We'd recommend it to anybody and maybe even watch it again if it turns up on an airplane.
