    I was bored and there was nothing else on TV. There that's my excuse what's yours? This is your typical Disney family film. Yes it does have a happy ending. What Disney movie doesn't? They sold this film using Disney Channel all-stars, Kyle Massey from "That's So Raven", Mitchel Musso from "Hannah Montana", and Kay Panabaker who regularly popped up on "Phil Of The Future". The only unrecognizable from Disney was Carter Jenkins, although I would expect him to pop-up on one of the aforementioned shows at some point if he has not already. So basically it is a story about a scheming 13 year-old who wants money for a rare comic book. The opportunity emerges when he discovers that a local dog show offers $5K as the grand-prize. Problem is he is sans dog. So what's a boy to do but go to the animal shelter and pick one out. Unfortunetly for him one of his fellow classmates has won this dog show for the past two years in a row and is determined to win again. For some reason he has it in for our star. Why? I don't know, the story needed some antagonist and obstacle for the hero to overcome, but like I said this is a Disney movie so things work out in the end. Better then most Disney made-for-TV-films, but not hitting classic stage anytime soon. The only reason this film is as popular as it is, is because of the names attached.
