Quotes

Ms. Stout: What is going on in here? Willamina, who brought a puppy in here?
Quinn: It was me, Ms. Stout. I found Paws.
Ms. Stout: Nice try, Quinn, but I don't believe you. Don't think I don't know who the ringleader of this circus is. Willamina, come with me!
[sees Paws' magic crystal]
Ms. Stout: Well, that's a pretty gem.
[takes crystal out of Paws' collar]
Paws: No, don't! Not my crystal!
Ms. Stout: [she picks up Paws] And the rest of you, clean up this mess and take off those ridiculous dresses, now!

Good Kids Movie
29 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie, and my two girls, age 4 and 1 did as well. The plot line was great, with a lot of suspense. It's just like one of the Buddies movies, without the Buddies. Its has a lot of the same characters as the Santa Buddies movie, which was a little confusing for my 4 year old Buddies lover, when there were no buddies in the movie. This seems like it could be more of a prequel to the Santa Buddies movie. Unlike the previous review, I thought the animated characters looked pretty life like. Of course their mouths moving aren't going to look like humans mouths moving! But if you are familiar with the Buddies movies, you know, and are used to that. I hope you and your children enjoy this movie as much as me and mine did!
