Loved the visual part -- cute puppies, border collies working. Didn't like the cutsey "dialog".

This is a terrific family movie. Very clean, with just enough drama to keep kids entertained without being to scary for little ones. I really liked the real life sheep dog action as did my children. My husband, who worked on a sheep farm in Austrailia, was laughing out loud at the way the sheep and rams are depicted, especially during the birthing section. Accurately funny, I guess. For anyone wondering, they use real animals and real people in the movie with human voices for the animals. No fake moving animal mouths though.
A Beautiful Movie that Brings a Quiet Joy

"Mist makes the list of my favorite family movies. Just enough conflict to keep it interesting, but no violence, no crude language, no cartoon characters, none of the double entendres you don't want to have to explain to children.
Mist is a sheepdog puppy who grows up in this film and learns the rules of being a good sheepdog. She exemplifies the power of focus, courage, and attention, and gently teaches those lessons. Added to this is a setting that will calm your spirit, and photography that shimmers.
Mist gently lifts your spirit. I highly recommend it.
Fine photography, family friendly film

"Life from puppies'-eye view, learning the lessons of growing into a fine working sheepdog. No controversy to speak of, just a feel-good story in a lovely setting, with a few good belly laughs thrown in for good measure. One of the best family-friendly films I've come across."
Perfect animal movie

"Not only is the cover cute, but the content is excellent! The photography makes you feel as though you're there in person watching as another dog would watch and the accent is not a problem for most people and reflects the British Isles setting. There's a scene where puppies are born, so it is great to introduce children to birth. Absolutely adorable....absolutely delightful!"
