Is this for real?
14 December 2011 | by FXproducer07See all my reviews

Read the other reviews so I figured I'd have my 8 year old watch it, after all, it is the holiday season. There really wasn't anything good about this flick. The dog isn't in the movie much at all, which actually turns out to be a good thing after hearing his "voice". The acting is painful to watch, especially the lead male. With low budget movies like this (I can only assume it is), you have to be creative in someway, and there was none of that. I'm not sure who these other reviewers are, but they couldn't be more wrong about the film. Don't believe me, watch it for yourself and write a review to save people from wasting their time.
