I believed the reviews here, but was disappointed with this DVD. I was going to buy this for my nieces, but it wouldn't hold their interest at all. Unfortunately, this movie is slow, the plot is inane, the acting is mediocre, and the girl doesn't even get to the farm until1/3 of the way through the movie. I forced my self to watch the first 7 minutes, then fast-forwarded through the rest of the film, hoping it would get better. It didn't.
Nice Family Movie

"I thought this was a nice movie about family life and growing up, nothing indecent and no bad language that I can recall picking up on. I purchased this movie as a gift for someone that is a real animal lover. I know some people in other reviews worried about explaining euthanasia of the dogs to their children but I think it's something they need to know about and be aware that this really happens in this world and I feel this would be a good teaching moment for the child to learn that they can make a difference when they decide to stand up for something. I did think the acting was kinda weak for an adult viewer, these aren't major celebrities here, and yes maybe that of a made-for-tv movie, but that it was still well done and heartfelt. I felt it had a good storyline with a tear-jerking happy ending. I liked it."
Great Movie, Esp Since Based on True Story!

"This is a great movie for helping kids understand that animals are not to be mistreated, disposed of like old property, and to be valued and treated well. It also demonstrates that you can't be too young to become an animal advocate. I've volunteered at a local animal shelter for 7 years and wished I had an opportunity to start when I was much younger so I could have done much more to help animals.
Truly a rarity...a great family film with a great message.

This movie is excellent. Having several friends with young children I hear all the time that there arent any family films that arent animated, and that they have a tough time finding live action films that the whole family can watch. This is one.
It has a great message behind it and is beautifully shot, beautifully acted. I'd recommend it to any one with kids or anyone wanting a film that will make them feel good afterwards."
