Merry Early Christmas Everyone!!
I can’t believe I’m already talking about Christmas on my blog. It’s for a good reason of course, because truth be told I can’t stand the fact that we talk about Christmas as soon as the Halloween costumes are stowed safely away in the closet. But, every once in awhile something can come up that makes me want to talk about it. I’m a succor for Christmas, and Christmas movies are a big part of it. I’ve got a list of Christmas movies that have been important over the years, and now I can start adding kid’s movies to the list. My children are just getting to the age where they realize there are movies and episodes of tv shows for holidays…..stuff that talks about the season. The Great Pumpkin was our first experience with the holiday film, and last year we added the traditional stop motion films like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and The Little Drummer Boy.
When I received the opportunity to check out the Santa Paws movie I was kind of excited. Honestly, probably more excited then the kids. My daughter, who is 4, actually just saw the commercial for it and she tried to explain that to me and I was so not understanding. Then I saw the commerical and she said, “see mommy, I told you,” and there you go…she told me.
So, after the baby was down for the night, we snuggled in with the lights down low to watch Santa Paws 2.
I have two options when talking about this movie…as a movie critic or as a mom. I’m going to review it as a mom, because that’s what I am, and that’s what this is about. I’m sure other people might choose to review it as a movie critic. Yes, its a straight to DVD movie, with actors that I’ve recognized from Lifetime or Hallmark, and some of the acting might be awkward. Although anything with Danny Woodburn in it (he was on Seinfeld, as Mikey – loooovvvvveeddd him!!) is awesome in my book. And, Cheryl Ladd (Three’s Company) plays Mrs. Claus!!!
Anyway, this is a darling movie, that is wholesome with an even more wonderful moral. All of these things are hard to find these days, even in kids movies. No adult content or adult humor thrown in for absolutely no reason. There was real meaning and emotion behind the movie, no matter how silly it may have been all packaged up. I really think this is a sweet and darling movie and my children and I had had great conversation about the spirit of Christmas and being kind to one another. If you are looking for a fun new kids movie, and you have kids between the ages of about 4-8ish, or for a family setting then give Santa Paws 2 a try. It’s cute and fun and all about Christmas!
