Silly but Cute, Totally Kid Approved
on April 12, 2014
Shades of Home Alone but with a pair of talking to themselves dogs and taking place in the Canadian North, this comedic film is a hit with the kiddoes.
Recently married, a famous actress, along her niece, move in with her husband, a widower and his son, at his house in the Great White North. Leaving the teens in the care of a babysitter, the newlyweds head off for a week on their honeymoon.
At first, the children are at odds and so are their dogs. The dogs lips move when they speak to each other, and there's plenty of silliness when two inept thieves attempt and attempt and attempt to steal a diamond from the house. Lots of slapstick made our kids(ages 7& 10) laugh as the dogs team up to, repeatedly, thwart the baddies in totally ridiculous fashion.
The dogs are well trained, and overall the movie's well made; although, some adults may get bored quickly. It's all done for the kids' humor and point of view with nothing scaring or threatening. Filmed in Regina, Saskatchewan with plenty of snow.
