SANTA PAWS 2: THE SANTA PUPS cover image Click to play video trailer
This movie is all about some pups being taught some lessons since birth. Some of the lessons make them curious like the one about some magic crystals. They think that they are ready to be like their dad so they steal one from Eddie (the elf dog). At the same time Mrs. Claus is flying to town so they hitch a ride and want to try to grant wishes. They give some good wishes, but then they accidentally grant a very bad wish, and everyone starts to lose their Christmas spirit. The main characters in the movie are Mrs. Claus; Eli, Santa's head Elf; The Reynolds family and the pups. My favorite character is Mrs. Claus because she cares a lot about others and loves all the Christmas spirit in the world. She is really good with kids and shows them all about Christmas spirit. I also really like the pups because they want to grant wishes, but it doesn't work out so well, so they have to help save Christmas for the world. My favorite part in the movie is all the singing. I love movies that have a lot of music in them and I think that helps to make them more enjoyable to others too. The best musical number in the movie is when Mrs. Claus is in jail with some people she met and sings a really good song. It is so good it has been stuck in my head for three days! It makes me want to see the movie over and over again until I memorize the words. I would recommend this movie for all ages because it is a really good movie and I think everyone will like it. It has mostly singing that is all about Christmas, joy and cheer. I guess that there were some things that just might scare you but I think you will be alright. It is a really great holiday movie. Go out and see this movie on DVD and Blu-ray now! Anthony Aranda, age 10, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.This movie will get you in the mood for the holidays and snow. Four super-cute white fluffy puppies are born at the North Pole. Three girls and one boy puppy, with a black spot, must go into training to become good helpers. They do not like school and decide to go down to see the children and grant wishes. An amazing icicle gives everyone at the North Pole magic powers through the crystal necklaces that they all wear. The are many rules that go with them, and if you leave school early, obviously you won't know all the rules. Mrs. Claus goes on a trip to find a Christmas Ambassador. The puppies stow away on the sleigh and go to Pineville to find out how to make more Christmas spirit. They grant a wish that makes everyone a nonbeliever. A little boy is sick of Christmas and wants it all to stop. Santa, the elves and Mr. and Mrs. Santa Paws are worried sick over the disappearance of the puppies. They decide to send out a rescue team. Now there are a lot of people and animals from the North Pole down with the real people and you know this can only lead to trouble. The funny kind of course. My favorite scenes were all the shots for the sleigh rides. The reindeer and sleighs all look so real. It made me want to jump in and take a ride. Charity was my favorite character and I have to say I am a little prejudice because I got to meet her live and in-person at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. Be sure to check out the video on She is adorable, friendly and fluffy in person. I also met the Mayor (Obba Babatunde.) He has a fabulous singing voice and is the kindest person to talk to. The music really puts you in the spirit and mood of the holidays. Cheryl Ladd and Kaitlyn Maher from "Americas Got Talent", sang many of the songs in this movie. The jail scene was great with all the girls singing and dancing, and the Sheriff too. The age range is 4 and up since the younger ones will love the puppies, all the Christmas decoration and the great singing. This is family friendly fun everyone is sure to enjoy. I give this movie 5 twinkling stars because I love talking reindeer and Christmas music. Morgan Bertsch, age 8, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
A magical and entertaining tale about four mischievous pups and the true meaning of Christmas spirit. The pups learn that there is a reason they aren't ready to take matters in their own paws and start granting wishes, but they also learn much about the meaning of their true names; Hope, Jingle, Charity and Noble. They help save the day and bring back the Christmas spirit that ha been wished away. Simply a delightful film for the whole family! I love the fast-play on the DVD and watching the out-takes. I really enjoy the magical animation effects, such as when the sled of reindeer are flying through the air. Everything felt real and magical.
