Totally Unacceptable
25 July 2015 | by wolfalliSee all my reviews

I would not recommend "A Halloween Puppy", and here is why:

-It is a crap fest -Too much sexual tension for a children's movie -Too much of the budget spent on hiring the mob boss from the Dark Knight to play Ted -The teenage girl was out of his league (like, way out of his league) -Who gave the dog a collar? Where did Ted's clothes go? Why did Ted turn into a female dog? -Same music replayed over and over -The dog's mouth wasn't even moving when Ted was talking... -Why isn't Ted more freaked out that he turned into a dog? "I'm a puppy, what?" -This is not nearly as good as Smart House -Why did the mom eat grass when the dog was screaming about chipmunks?
