Well, first - hallelujah! This is a Christmas movie that actuallymentions, if only obliquely, the REAL reason for Christmas! No, notjolly family get-togethers and being nice to strangers and animals, butChrist! Although, as I say, the mentions are very oblique and shouldn'toffend any atheists.
Second - oops! Kids and adults alike will be confused by this movie.Kids will be confused because the little girl playing the lead role,Sarah (who has a dad), is the same actor who played the lead in thefirst Santa Paws movie - only in that one, she played an orphan calledQuinn. Sarah looks precisely the same as Quinn (perhaps a year or soolder), and has an absolutely indistinguishable character from Quinn(naive and cuuuuuute).
Adults will be confused because one of the three erstwhile sexyCharlie's Angels, Cheryl Ladd, plays a relatively glamorous butunmistakably matronly Mrs Claus.
Otherwise - the plot is predictable and clichéd, but bearable. And thepups, of course, are gorgeous. Oh - and this time, the majority of them(three out of four) are ... prepare for a shock ... FEMALE. Disney mustfinally be learning. Took them long enough ...

This movie is all about some pups being taught some lessons sincebirth. Some of the lessons make them curious like the one about somemagic crystals. They think that they are ready to be like their dad sothey steal one from Eddie (the elf dog). At the same time Mrs. Claus isflying to town so they hitch a ride and want to try to grant wishes.They give some good wishes, but then they accidentally grant a very badwish, and everyone starts to lose their Christmas spirit.
The main characters in the movie are Mrs. Claus, Eli (Santa's headElf), The Reynolds family and the pups. My favorite character is Mrs.Claus because she cares a lot about others and loves all the Christmasspirit in the world. She is really good with kids and shows them allabout Christmas spirit. I also really like the pups because they wantto grant wishes, but it doesn't work out so well, so they have to helpsave Christmas for the world.
My favorite part in the movie is all the singing. I love movies thathave a lot of music in them and I think that helps to make them moreenjoyable to others too. The best musical number in the movie is whenMrs. Claus is in jail with some people she met and sings a really goodsong. It is so good it has been stuck in my head for three days! Itmakes me want to see the movie over and over again until I memorize thewords.
I recommend this movie for all ages because it is a really good movieand I think everyone will like it. It has mostly singing that is allabout Christmas, joy and cheer. I guess that there were some thingsthat just might scare you but I think you will be alright. It is areally great holiday movie. Go out and buy this movie on DVD andBlu-ray now!
