Wonderful film
16 November 2013 | by JazzPrimeSee all my reviews

As the title says, wonderful film full of laughs that will keep you smiling the entire time. Including a wonderful cast such as David DeLuise(Wizards Of Waverly Place), Davis Cleveland(Shake It Up), Kevin Sorbo(Hercules), & Chris Kattan(SNL). The dogs are great for dog lovers, and are really cute. The criminals are funny but scary, just like the ones in the Home Alone films. Speaking of which, it is basically another addition to the Home Alone movie series, except instead of a kid kicking the criminal's butts, its dogs. Wonderful idea and nicely filmed. I hope for a sequel for sure!

Any lover of Family comedy's, or lover of "The Home Alone Series" will LOVE this film.
