This movie is about DOGS. Do you even know how much I love dogs?!
The first 10 minutes of the movie include the nicest and weirdest USPS worker I have ever seen in my entire life. But it turns out that he is casing the joint, so I guess that makes sense. Like most holiday movies, this one is not subtle.
I cannot imagine leaving my dog home for the holidays… until I realize that’s exactly what I do when I leave her to go to the in-laws. The family in this movie leave their sweet dog, Bone, at a verrrry fishy “kennel.” At the psuedo-kennel, Bone meets a dog named Cupcake, who warns Bone about robbers who they deduce are coming for his family’s home! Dum dum dum.
The dogs are also psychic. And they fart a lot. Like real dogs! There’s more farting than there should be in this movie. The fart is excessive, even for me.
The other family dog, Columbus, escapes from their car and somehow Homeward Bound’s himself all the way back home to save the day and help his brother, Bone. Bone, meanwhile, commandeers and rides a skateboard back to his house. The burglars smell like “fish and body spray.” Bone Home Alone’s the house against the burglars and that’s all you need to know to know whether or not you want to watch this movie.
There’s something really sharp in my butt. –Rob (Justin Hoffmeister)
I bet that actor is really proud of his work in this role.
But what I’m saying is this movie is cute, reminiscent of Home Alone, and worth watching if you can’t find anything else on the Hulu you are in the mood for.
