The DVD of this film is called "A Golden Christmas 2"
23 March 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. TRUST ME THIS FILM IS TERRIBLE. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE.

This film is a sequel to "A Golden Christmas" and if you liked the original then you will like this one as well. In this follow up film Rod and Katherine are enjoying their retirement in Florida. They've made friends with their new neighbor, Lisa, whose three golden retriever puppies give the couple's dog, Jake, three new playmates. But when the retrievers take off during a walk with Lisa and interrupt a wedding proposal, Lisa is mortified to discover the proposer is her ex, David.

The casting is fine and the plot hums along but at times it just feels like everyone is just going through the motions without much depth in some of the scenes.

My favorite scene in the whole film however is the final scene. I thought it was creative and inspiring.
