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.

One Christmas Clunker
2 December 2014 | by USN-RetiredSee all my reviews

Absolutely the worst movie made in recent years, Christmas or not. The only good thing about this flop is the puppy. One must wonder what they were thinking to actually release this horrid excuse of a movie. Once the process started, the script finished, actors selected…it's as if the process was a train that couldn't be stopped. Someone should have thrown the switch to put this on a side-rail for no one to see. What planet do these people come from? There are no redeeming elements. The plot is weak, the storyline is stealthy, and the acting non-existent. Situations strain credulity. If you manage to get through the first hour, you'll know it was a mistake to watch, and you'll hate yourself of being sucked in by the puppy. Best to record it so you can FF/Watch a little/FF/watch a little more/DELETE. You'll find out the last 15-minutes is as bad as the middle segments. I'm a sucker for even bad Christmas movies, but this is off the scale at a -10, if that were possible.
