Don't thank me.
Please.
I mean it.

(more seriously : the movie looks... crappy, but I guess we're not the target here. At least Dolph looks like he's having a blast).

The company who released the trailer appears to be the Australian / New Zealander distributor.

The idea is not bad, a rip-off of Home Alone with dogs. I'm almost disturbed by seeing Dolph in this but it looks like he's having fun.

Nice, the trailer basically showed the entire movie lol. It actually doesn't look as bad as i expected and indeed it looks like Dolph is having fun. Amazed they didn't show Keith David and Eric Roberts but judging by their credits on IMDb they'll probably be cameos.

If it's Saban (DEAD TRIGGER, BLACK WATER) they might release it limited theatrical and on demand, then Lionsgate would put out a disc...

Does this pretty dopey? Yes. Is this any different from what we expected when it was announced over three years ago? Nope. And does it look extremely bizarre seeing Dolph of all people in this Hallmark Christmas tale (or tail :lol: )? Absolutely. But... As has been stated, Dolph appears to be having loads of fun here. And his acting also appears to be quite good. He seems truly invested, and evidenced by these two minutes, isn't phoning this one in.

107 minutes seems rather long for what it is.

Good job. It feels like it has budget , cinematography, director.. It is better to wait couple of years and keep polish the final product then to release it in 6 month after principal photography wrapped. Today's main mistake is done because production is always rushed 14-21 days of shooting of the entire movie. Result can not be good. As Michael Pare said in one interview 1 month ago- back in time u had 40-50 days of shooting where u can discuss artistic side with director during process today u have nothing- u just need to move on,sometimes very unsatisfied with the result just because u don't have time to do it.
I think VOD is killing the industry with low financing and deadlines.
Who could think that Dolph can play this type of character about 20 years ago ? Aka Stallone in Spy Kids 3. I don't think Sly was that bad as a villain like many critics said. I t was a kid movie like Arnold in Batman and Robin (1997). Cartoonish
