I found this in the "slightly damaged" category @ CBD & decided to include it in an order I was placing because the "price was right" as they say. At the time I was trying to find a good DVD to show during the Christmas season at church because "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" drew a big crowd last year. Well unfortunately this DVD isn't going to cut it. The grown ups are shown drinking "adult beverages" on more than one occasion. Also, there's something mystical about the golden retriever that brings the "star-crossed lovers" together by the end of the show. I got the impression she may be some sort of angel or reincarnated form of the dog the male & female leads played with as children. She certainly knows more than the average dog when it comes to the past & how to bring together the couple who were summer playmates at age 9. This a predictable romance like you could find on the Hallmark Channel & is for the most part, family-friendly. However, it's not a DVD you'd want to show during the Christmas season at a Baptist Church
My family started watching this movie together, and had to turn it off. Inappropriate content for children- the sister asks the main character if she and a boy "did it" in the woods when they were young children.
Also, very slow start/boring beginning. Not about dogs at all, that we saw, and we watched a good thirty minutes of it. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
