The script, characters, and acting are all fine for a younger audience, and fun for an older one. It's not great film, but is entertaining if such a story appeals to you. It's based on a popular children's book of the same name.
PS The five Berger Picards (called "Picards" for short), interchangeably used In the movie, were all imported from France; and were then subsequently used for other roles in commercials, theater, etc. There is now a Picard being used in one Geico commercial (the dripping ceiling one), and previously in other ads. The breed has recently been officially accepted into the American Kennel Club, and can be seen at some shows, etc., in this country, as well as in a variety of performance events; including, of course, sheepherding.
And yes, some do "smile", just like in the movie! : )
The only thing negative in this review is Amazon's "Instant" digital rental. We have had interruptions to our movie streaming almost every time we watch an Amazon Instant movie, and this time it was particularly poor. There were 20-25 interruptions, each one lasting 15 to 45 seconds. And when we complained to Amazon, all we received in return was someone suggesting that we check our internet connection. We have not had any streaming problems on Netflix or Hulu. Simply put, Amazon is brilliant at selling merchandise and shipping it quickly, but is not yet ready for the streaming digital entertainment market. We will not be purchasing any more movie rentals from Amazon for a while!
5-star movie + 1-star Amazon performance = 3-star overall rating.
Suffice it to say, that this is a great family movie, full of love, humor, and quirkiness. It doesn't miss in relating a Godly message on several levels, which I love. The story is nice enough that even an unbeliever would probably really like this movie for their kids.
It does deal with some of life's difficulties, such as fears, divorce, parental abandonment, loneliness, insecurity, etc. Many of them are either somewhat healed or overcome, by the end of the movie.
Dave Matthews plays a delightful character, and sings several songs during the movie.
And let's not forget the Litmus Lozenges. "They taste sad,...... like not having a dog!"
