Steve's Movie Review

by Valerie Barker


I'm sure all of you puppies are familiar with that box that your moms and dads are so interested in. You know, the one with the pictures and the sounds that come out of it. Well, the other day, Mom and Dad were watching the picture box and they did their usual thing where they try to bribe Kat and me to be good for a while with Busy Bones. I decided to do a little research into what is so great about the picture box, so I ate my Busy Bone extra fast and watched the box too. Here is what I discovered. (That's me watching the box.)

They were watching a movie called "Little Miss Sunshine". Now, they think that movie is so funny, but I'm not sure I agree. First off, there are no dogs in it. Not a one that I saw. (Unless it happened when I was eating my Busy Bone.) Then, most of the movie takes place in a car, but no one is sticking their head out the window and letting their tongues flap in the breeze. What is wrong with these people? The only reason I don't stick my head out the window all the time I'm in the car is that my mom and dad won't let me. That is probably what happened in the movie. The people in the front of the car did seem kind of cranky, so they probably didn't want to roll the windows down. Next, there is a part in the movie where their car breaks down. Guess what they decide to do? PUSH the car. Again, what's wrong with these people? Any husky knows that if you want to get somewhere, you have to PULL. This is where the lack of dogs in the movie really starts to mess up the plot line. If they had just had some huskies, they could have harnessed them to the front of the car and they would have not had any problems. Finally, in the movie, the dad has 9-step plan for success. It involves things like work and positive thinking. I think that sounds like 8 steps too many. In my experience, I have found that I only need one step to success - Be Cute. It works like a charm. All in all, I'd give this movie 4 paws out of 4. Despite the movie lacking factors that are important to the canine viewer, the humans seemed to really enjoy it and since they were distracted by the movie, I could get into trouble without being noticed. I recommend all pups try this movie on their humans.
