Surprised it's rated G....not a G movie

Common Sense Media has gotten this one wrong! my 8 year old and I watch this based on the reviews here. I was shocked I cannot believe this movie is rated G, it should at least be PG. The whole movie is about a teenage relationship blossoming with some scenes, although they were innocent, were definitely not comfortable or appropriate for my 8 year old to watch. The movie had very grown-up themes... also the main character is not a role model. She was very rude, disrespectful and dressed too sexy. She only pretended to be nice in order to get a boy to notice her initially. The movie was not at all about dogs or dog training was basically a romance. Be cautious with young children!

Super heart warming movie

My 7 year old loved this one. She says it's now her favorite movie. I liked that there were no bad guys and was a good feel good movie.
