Two young girls from an orphanage are adopted by a family in New York. The only problem is the apartment they move to doesn't allow dogs. The girls try to sneak a puppy they find into the home and keep it hidden. Chestnut (a Great Dane) grows and grows while getting into more and more trouble.
I saw this movie Oct. 24, 2004, as part of the Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis, and I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually a huge fan of kid and dogs movies, and the flick is somewhat predictable, but it still tugged at my heartstrings. Without giving any details, there is a sad scene towards the end. I was sitting in a room full of kids while watching the movie, and you could hear them all sobbing. It was almost laughable.
The kids' acting is pretty good, the dog is cute, and the storyline is solid, as long as you don't think too critically about it. I'm guessing it won't win any Academy Awards, but I know lots of children who would really enjoy it, and I'd guess it will do well in the small fry crowd.
