THE PLOT:

When the Reindeers get Reindeer flu on the eve of Christmas Eve, two elves go onto the world to look for new ones. But due to a mishap with broken glasses they get 8 dogs who was dognapped by a man with a crazy dream of starting a dog circus.

Training the dogs to fly and pull a sleigh is only part of their training, but the madman and his personal dog track them down and may ruin Christmas for everyone as he makes plan to reclaim his stolen dogs.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

The cast does a great job and the animation is great. But my biggest complaint is about the music. None of the charaters sing, the music is just background and in my less then humble opinion slows the story down instead of moves the story along as the music suppose to do. That and that alone is why I have to give 9 DOG CHRISTMAS, 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this one, in fact I found the music somewhat annoying to a point I almost wanted to turn it off. But I had "Stick-to-it-ness" and kept going and it was barely worth my time. So 5 STARS!

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ ANIMATION (The animation was great.)
+ CHARACTERS (The characters were cute.)
+ STORY (For the most part worked.)
+ UNIQUE (Nine dogs flying for Santa, that was unique.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- LONG LULLS (The music put long lulls in the story.)
- MUSIC (The music only hindered the story.)

...AND FIANLLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan of dogs or Christmas, then this isn't the movie for you.)
