This movie was OK, IMO... not fantastic, but OK. It has a fairly high dove family film rating. Most parts of it are OK, although it does have some "duh" moments that adults might role their eyes at. :-) All round, it's a pretty clean movie.

Fluff, but fun and gives a learning experience.

"Ahhh... I couldn't resist this at the video store. I am a pomeranian lover! And, the video features a pomeranian as one of the main stars! I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It may have moved a bit slowly, but I didn't mind. I was able to relax. I thought the pom was great, and the movie showed how wonderful poms are! And, the movie also showed that meanness won't get you into heaven. Not that I believe in heaven and hell, but I do believe in people being kind and thoughtful of others, not selfish and cut-throat which seems to be the way in business these days...
I highly recommend this film."

"This is probably the funniest movie I've ever seen. Not only do you get to watch one of Hollywood's most psychotically coked-out actors since Crispin Glover humiliate himself on camera repeatedly out of genuine belief that he's making an actual "film", but you also get to see Curtis "Booger" Armstrong pretend that he's 30 years old as he commands an ensemble cast of washed up sitcom has-beens-that-never-really-were--like Martin Tupper's best friend from "Dream On" and Dauber from "Coach." Some of my favorite scenes include the now famous "Quirky Dog Catcher Carries The Skunk Across The Playground For No Apparent Reason," "Quirky Dog Catcher Opens His Van Full Of Dogs And Cow Noises Come Out For No Apparent Reason" and the part where Gary Busey grumbles "I'd rather clean a short person's teeth," also for no apparent reason.

As if that weren't enough, the audience is also treated to shot after agonizing shot of the camera's lens hood rotating in the frame while the actors' clothing spontaneously changes of its own accord. And dad will be happy that the mother character always wears a lot of skin-tight sweaters, presumably to show off the budget rate boøb job she saved up for in order to secure her star on the walk of fame.

But don't take that DVD out just because the movie's over. This pooch comes packed with bonus features! Every single person who appeared in the film gets their own 15 minute interview segment, no matter how inconsequential and forgettable their part might have been. You can practically smell the desperation steaming off of the guy who obviously spent a great deal of time coming up with his Quirky German Janitor character, and as always, Gary Busey just rambles on incoherently about what amazingly important and life-affirming work he's doing. There's also an extensive collection of bloopers and outtakes where one can enjoy watching Gary Busey accuse one of his castmates of being an android, and make a lot of uncomfortable sexual advances toward some poor woman who got duped into playing a nurse in this steaming pile of failure.

The only way this release could have possibly been better is if it had come bundled with a "Virtual Reality CD-ROM" that included a copy of the wonderful videogame the story seemed to center around. But I'm sure the producers decided against this since "Virtual Reality CD-ROMs" are so inherently fragile that they shatter into a million pieces when they are dropped onto a desk from a height of roughly 2 inches. Plus they wouldn't want to put Sony and Nintendo out of business with such compelling stone-skipping action. Japan's economy would surely crumble, and that's not a good family value."

"We found this to be a very cute movie.

Will it win any awards? No. Was it entertaining? Yes.

The Pomeranian is very cute, smart & well trained."
