Reviewed on 1/11/2010...
I was so excited about getting this movie, it sounded so cute. Also who can resist Dean Cain, he's a great actor. But I was quite disappointed. It was very slow moving, with no surprises. You knew they were going to buy a dog. You knew the dog was going to save Christmas, so get to the point. It was very slow moving and very predictable. My suggestion is if you are going to watch the movie don't expect much and don't read the synopsis on the back cover of the DVD. It gives away too much. My mom said this was a "Home Alone" version except with a dog, except she would rather watch Home Alone.

A goodhearted family Christmas movie.

"This movie is a good hearted family sit down with a bowl of popcorn and relax movie.The family wants to take in a great dog for Christmas but the mother is not into having a dog.So the father goes to the pound looking for a dog when he spots Zeus,a former K-9 unit dog,who was picked up as a stray.The family falls for Zeus instantly,but the mother has problems with him being there.When the family decides to go to Grandmas house for Christmaas Eve ,Burgulars decide to break in and rob them,but Zeus has to remember what made him a great K-9 dog and bring it up from inside.In the end Zeus capture the Burgulars,but not before having a little whimsical humor with them.Andrean Barbeou,guest as the cat lady.Dean Cain is one of the Burgulars along with Joey Cool.Very humorous,includes bloopers at end of movie."

"I watched this on TV with my 3 and 5 year old children. I had to fast forward through a lot of material that I felt was adult oriented and not very "happy" for a Christmas movie. It's cheesy at best- don't buy it."
Marley meets Home Alone?

"This movie is pretty much Home Alone 4 (or 5, or whatever its up to) but with a dog. I think they are trying to capitalize on the popularity of the Marley movie (even the DVD covers look similar!)

Zeus the dog is an ex-police K9 turned pound puppy who gets taken home by a family at Christmas. The dad and kids love the dog but the mom isn't sure she wants one around the house. To make matters worse, they think he might be too friendly to be a good watch dog.

But when a pair of bungling burglars set their sights on the family home... Well, you did see Home Alone, right? Kind of predictable.... but overall a harmless family holiday movie."
