the 12 cheesy films of christmas: the 12 dogs of christmas


In the 1930s, 12-year-old Emma sets out to treat her down-and-out town to an inspiring Christmas pageant starring 12 homeless, spirited dogs. –Netflix description


It’s 1931, and Emma’s father, who’s lost his job and his house, sends her to live with her aunt in the small town of Doverville until he can come to get her. There she meets a “crazy dog lady” who houses and feeds abandoned dogs; the mayor, who is bent on reinstating an old law that bans dogs in the city limits; and a creepy dog catcher who does the mayor’s bidding. How does Emma save her friends’ dogs? By putting on a Christmas show, of course! There’s no problem a little bit of theater can’t help.

This movie was cute (because PUPPIES) and it had its funny moments, but honestly, I felt like it was about 20 or 30 minutes too long. It could have done with less talk and more action (and more puppies).

It also answers that age-old question that’s been plaguing mankind since…2000.
