HOTEL FOR DOGS (Film Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Hotel for Dogs—
a feel good film, worth viewing for dog lovers—has a great story line and a universal appeal because of its depiction of saving rescue dogs. Although a difficult film to ‘pull off’ due to the many animals involved, the organizers did a fabulous job and turned this movie into a great family film.

Orphans Bruce (Jake T. Austin) and Andi (Emma Roberts) live in a foster home that has little supervision, but has strict rules about dogs. No dogs allowed. The two children find an abandoned hotel to hide their own dog in and gradually fill the hotel with rescue dogs.
