Clean kids Christmas movie, no barn burner though
14 November 2017 | by the_doofySee all my reviews

I appreciated the fact that the movie really was G, which was surprising for me considering Mariah's innuendo singing videos.

The singing was pretty decent, no real highs or lows, but all in all a good listen.

The voice dubbing left something to be desired, U have a woman born in 1970 dubbing about a pre-teen character, and it doesn't really work. I think Mariah needed someone giving her some constructive criticism in this instead of a bunch of kiss ups giving her feed back. Fred Astaire did the narrating and singing in 'Santa clause is comin to town', and dubbed an older character, to make a point.

I really liked how the script kept the focus on the dog plot, as a lot of advertised dog movies are not in reality focused on a dog, but rather the dog ends up being in more of a sub plot within the movie. Not so in this one. Of course it is an animation, so this is not a perfect comparison.

I can recommend this movie for kids, it focuses on puppies and a child's interaction with her parents (yep, a Christmas video movie in which a child has both a Dad and Mom). The movie in of itself is not any kind of classic, but it is a serviceable G family Christmas watch, younger kids may like it quite a bit.
