This was a good movie. I liked the message and it was a cute "chessy" Christmas movie to sit down and watch wit the family. The ONE thing I hated about this movie, it nearly ruined the whole movie, was that the two puppies did not end up living happily ever after?! Like, the producers let us believe that Max has a chance at true love when the hockey player says "oh she's a girl" talking about his dog. Why didn't max and the other gal pup live happily ever after? These are the questions that haunt me.
