Great family movie. Touching story about man's best friend and a child's faith in him.

Even My Dog Likes It!

"Okay so I'm a sucker for dog movies.....and Dean Cain. Originally I bought this movie because I'm a die-hard Dean Cain fan, but I am a sucker for any movies with or about dogs, so I got double the fun for my money.
This is an all around good movie. I grew up in a family that raises and shows dogs, so I related to both the girl's and dad's feelings. This movie is a cute, entertaining tell of a girl who sets out to cear her father's police dog/her dog companion name and save him.
What I find even more interesting is that my dog even sat down and literally watched this movie with me, all the canine interaction, I guess, got his attention.
This is a great family film and a must for any dog lover!"
Impressing everyone but the crooks!

"Ace is a member of a k-9 unit and one of the top in his field for getting the bad guys. Dan is a dad that sometimes is so protective of his canine partner that he spends more time with the dog than his teenage daughter or his wife. It doesn't take long to see that Ace respects Dan more than any of the other family members...even taking over dan's wife side of the bed. This leads to stress in both relationships as wife and daughter feel they are always second best to the dog.
Unfortunately on one occasion, Ace gets blamed for attacking a theif named Torko's throat. The lacking evidence to the crime that Ace chased him down for protrays the criminal as an innocent bystander attacked by a vicious dog. This leads to Ace being sent to be put down or Torko's lawyer will press charges. The caring handler that Dan is...decides to drive him there with dignity since Ace is distressed to be apart from him.
Pair a smart canine with an inept employee and a blessing of an escape results where Ace must find his way home. In the meantime, both Dan and his daughter Julia try to clear Ace's name while dealing with both grief, ashes labeled as Ace, and evidence that leaves the possibility that Ace is alive.
Definitely a heartwarming animal story here of a dog that steals hearts. My only disappointment was there were no dvd extras...just trailers of other dvd movies. It would have been interesting to see how they trained the dog, additional scenes, story background, actor's comments and more."
Wonderful Family Film!

"I am a sucker for any movie with a dog in it...I guess I have been since the days of Benji!
This movie has a great storyline that deals with a girl's search for the truth to save her beloved dog, Ace. Good acting and the whole family will enjoy.
The girl in the movie is a type of junior detective and the studio put together a wonderful "Junior Detectives Guide" to accompany the film. My kids worked through it after watching it over the weekend and had fun doing it: [...]
I recommend this movie."
