Television Budget / Running Time Ruined This

The gem of an idea get ruined in this television production. In this film a teenager gets visited by a "Christmas Spirit". This kid is not exactly full of "Christmas Cheer" but he isn't a bad kid. He is an only child to a single mother.

One day he gets a visit from a spirit that he MUST show another family the joy of Christmas. Not knowing how to do that he must wing it. THe spirit tells him to "follow the signs" and he will find the destination! She then hands him a fortune cookie that helps lead the way! Sounds great right. The kid must travel and look for signs. What a great funny set up. Can imagine the stranger on the bus looking at him. He getting the signs wrong. Great Right! Well it never happens. The TV Budget limits this film to just one location.

We go from his home to his destination. The film took too many short cuts. The film could of been great, But it becomes predictable and boring. Kids might like this but adults will just be bored. What could of been a funny and heartwarming story becomes another forgettable Christmas movie.

This film had a great and funny idea. This however a film with an idea that should be re-explored. A bigger budget would help. A longer journey for Riley should be on the agenda if someone does remake this.

If you come across this film pass on it!!

Terrible movie, kept expecting it to turn into a porno

We started watching this with the kids, but they quickly lost interest as the acting was so bad, and the lack of a puppy. My wife and I kept looking at each other stating that it seemed more like the premise of a porno. Not that we watch a lot of porn, but we've both seen adult movies, and this one sure seemed to be going that way, except that it never did.

Our kids were waiting to see a puppy thanks to the Netflix title, but after quickly realizing that there was no such puppy, they no longer wanted to watch it. Part of the blame falls on Netflix, but had the movie been any good, we may have gotten through it.

Honestly, we couldn't get through this thing. I think we lasted 20 minutes which is good for certain activities, but not for this movie.

Fun movie!!

It has 2 titles I noticed. It is too bad that some Scrooge slammed a perfectly good movie because he got his panties in a wad over a title. This movie is respectfully accurate for the genre, even if not so much about the dog's age. The dog is an integral part of the movie though.

I enjoy curling up in bed with the dogs and taking in a few of these movies this time of year.

The guy who plays the husband is gorgeous. I kept trying to place the house in Malibu and I think I do know which one it is. That makes it fun too. It's a quirky romantic, fantasy Christmas movie.

Merry Christmas!
