Goofs

At the State Quarter-final game (40 minute mark of film), the Bulldogs are down 49-48 following a basket to pull it within one point. Next possession up the floor, the other team turns the ball over and the score is 50-49 when the slow motion comes in and the Bulldogs make a basket at the whistle to win the game and they go back to the scoreboard as the point total is switching from 48 to 50.

A follow-up wasn't necessary
28 February 2020 | by r96skSee all my reviews

'12 Dogs of Christmas 2: The Great Puppy Rescue' is on a similar level as the preceding production, though I hold more issues with this one.

Sequels are always less watchable when the cast changes, as it does here. It's an alright film, though has a real lack of dogs in it given the title/plot. A few of the characters were also pretty pointless.

A follow-up wasn't necessary, especially given the seven year gap between the two.
