The Twelve Dogs of Christmas ★½ 2005

Sappy Christmas story set in the Depression. 12yearold Emma O'Connor (Green) is sent to live with her aunt in a small town and finds out that dogs are newly banned in the community (grrrrr). So it's up to Emma, a large number of pooches, and a school holiday pageant to make everything right. Cute dogs, cute kid—probably tolerable for the younger set. Based on the book by Emma Kragen. 107m/C DVD . Jordan-Claire Green, John Billingsley, Richard Riehle, Eric Lutes, Bonita Friedericy, Mindy Sterling, John-Kevin Hilbert; D: Keith Merrill; W: Keith Merrill, Emma Kragen; C: Michael Fimognari. VIDEO
