I will never buy a kids movie based on the cover again! How could you go wrong with such a cute little puppy peeking out of Santa's backpack right? Well, what a terrible movie! My daughter cried on and off the entire movie, and my son kept talking about ways he wanted to hurt the mean people in the movie - that's the Christmas Spirit Disney! Here are some highlights: Santa gets hit by a car, suffers from amnesia, and at the end is in critical condition in the hospital and they tell the little girl he probably won't make it. Then the wicked woman who runs the orphanage yells and screams at little girls, does not allow them to sing, have toys, or celebrate Christmas, and punishes them by putting them in the cold dark basement overnight. I have to say the part that really crossed the line was the cute little "paws" losing his "life force" and turning into a pretty scary looking stuffed stuffed dog that gets thrown into an incinerator by the wicked woman. There are flames lapping all around the dog. The little girl crawls into the incinerator, onto the conveyor belt, to rescue the dog from the flames that are lapping at his face. Due to the subject matter, and kids not being able to understand that "it's just a movie," I would say kids need to be at least first graders to watch this. Disney, you really dropped the ball with this Christmas Flick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by angella18 My Kids LOVED this movie
I have a 5 yr old and an almost 3 yr old and they LOVED the movie. It's all my son has been asking for for Christmas since we rented the movie!!! It is a very cute heart warming movie with a very cute dog in it. It also gives you a good opportunity to teach your kids about some real life situations. Not everyone has a perfect home life and people do get hit by cars and people do get sick or hurt and die those are just the facts of life. The movie however doesn't dwell on them and make them a big deal the above reviewer did that all by themselves. Don't let their opinion stop you from at least renting this movie. It is worth it very good movie.

My dog watches movies about dogs. We have all the buddy movies except Spooky Buddies which I will need to obtain. I know, not many dogs watch movies or TV shows but she loves the movies. It is also a great family movie.
