Overview: Nine year-old Chance Watson is lying, cheating, stealing, and flunking out of school.
Then one night, a wonderful, magical sheepdog appears and promises to make his dreams come true, if he can follow "The Rules"!
DVD Verdict: And so, with that promise made by his new talking (and sometimes invisible!) "buddy," soon Chance has changed his life and the lives of many of the students at his school.
But there are those who are out to stop him and prove his furry friend is not real, but only a figment his imagination! In those scenes you get the usual slapstick moments of But he IS real and such, but they work here, given the young acting range portrayed on screen by Oscar Limon-Zarzosa.
Also starring Cat Johnston, Rory Johnston, Trina Colon, and Rick Ginn, it seems that sooner rather than later and given all the continual comments, even Chance then begins to wonder: Is he crazy?
Overall, I quite liked this morally right movie chock full of positive messages that it gives to the children (both involved in the movie and those watching).
That said, the casting of the main character Chance could have been handled better as a character as he is obviously Hispanic, but neither of his parents (or grandparents) look Hispanic. I think that could have been addressed better, that's all. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
