Jake & Jasper
5 February 2012 | by karen-284-537646See all my reviews

The movie was very enjoyable as a mum I shed genuine tears for the young Jake (Connor) I felt his pain through his character and whilst understanding his father's pain I really did want to give 'dad' a severe talking to. Big sis whilst singing to Jake brought the mum out in her, a very emotional movie from the human side. The star was always gonna be Jasper (Falcor)he is now the ambassador for ferret ownership worldwide. His antics had me laughing through my Jake induced tears. Need another movie showing step by step how Jasper (Falcor) was trained. What also made this movie special was involving pet and in particular ferrets to help finance the movie. For most of the contributors like me it is the first time we have done anything like this, what a pleasure to be able to say I helped make this wonderful movie a reality. I only have one negative to report and that is lack of sub titles. I rely on subtitles to help me follow a movie etc. Lack of subtitles means my husband has to tell me what is being said. Although visually I was so impressed with Jake (Connor) that I needed less help than normal :-)
