Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This odd hybrid of cloying talking-dog story, farcical comedy, and sweet but routine romance is weakened further by amateurish execution, some overblown performances, and an ever-changing tone. Everybody is working hard in Puppy Swap: Love Unleashed, but they're undone by the incompetence and inconsistency of the creative team in charge. A ten-mile car ride, which starts in daylight, ends at night. Dogs that are supposed to be identical are anything but. Some of the actors are obviously brand new, and others are painfully unrestrained. Sara Fletcher, an able young actress, deserves better. And it's a sad legacy for Margot Kidder, in what was most certainly her last role.
