Goofs

When the puppy gets away from Alden at the hospital construction zone, the puppy runs into a ventilation duct and makes a right turn. The next shot has a crane camera showing the general area, including the ventilation duct, which runs straight and even uphill for over 100 feet with absolutely no right hand corner, instead there is a left hand corner.

You Know, Nothing is Funnier Than a Crutch
1 December 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

A couple of janitors working late on Christmas Eve have a puppy dumped on them. They try to leave in on Anne Heche's doorstep, but one of them breaks his leg fleeing... and that's just the first disaster in this remarkably funny comedy from the Hallmark Channel's annual Christmas season of original movies.

Jay Russell directs his cast in wonderfully straight-faced performances as they struggle to get through this particular calamity, only to break an arm or be robbed at gunpoint in a snowstorm. Miss Heche's just-keeping-it-together-for-the-kids demeanor is very funny, and the mildly incredulous way Brian Tee as the doctor who keeps seeing the same bunch of shlemazels return to his emergency room yet again is fine. There aren't many laugh-out-loud moments, but no one tries for them. You will smile a lot as people manage to get through big and small problems and still be happy.
