A real stinker! Feb 16, 2008
A truly awful movie. Kate Jackson, looking every one of her 55 years, was hopelessly miscast here. She deserves better. I cringed at the closing scenes where she giggled about her sudden craving for "pickles and ice cream". The little boy and the puppies were the only believable characters in this movie although Stacey Keach had his moments. This is definitely not for anyone over the age of 5.
Great idea, great performances, could have been great. Aug 10, 2007
This film has a great idea and some terrific actors doing excellent acting, including Kate Jackson, Wayne Rogers, Stacy Keach, and especially newcomer Josh Hutcherson (who has since starred in Little Manhattan, Bridge to Terabithia, and several others). The idea is about a boy who has to give away some puppies, and in the meantime when the puppies (or their mother) visit hospital patients, the patients miraculously get better. The reason I only give it four stars is that the film doesn't stay focused on that idea and follow individual stories for each puppy & patient, but gets sidetracked with other characters like a doctor (Wayne Rogers) who has little to do with the main story, a janitor (Stacy Keach), and a dog catcher. These characters are fine in their own rite & well acted, but they take time away from the main theme which could have been developed more and made this a great 5-star film.
Cute Movie...Good for kids! Oct 22, 2005
This movie is very cute and is especially good for kids. This is the kind of movie you can let your kids watch and not have to woory about what they are watching (if the content is inappropriate or not.)
REFRESHING PAWS May 12, 2005
It would be very easy to dismiss MIRACLE DOGS as a saccharine-sweet unbelievable family film, but that would be rather Grinchish or Scroogish. Sure, it's predictable and filled with every movie cliche of this type of film. But it's heart is so big and in the right place, one can't help but feel a little fuzzy after watching it. The dogs are irresistibly cuddly and little Josh Hutcherson is so believable as the little boy, the movie manages to entertain in spite of its sugary delivery. I've always enjoyed watching Kate Jackson since her days on "Dark Shadows" and although she isn't given a lot to do in this film, her radiance remains. KNOTS LANDING'S Ted Shackelford and MIKE HAMMER'S Stacy Keach likewise are serviceable in their roles, and Rue McClanahan makes a convincing lonely old rich lady. I don't know if there's a lot of validity in "Zoo Medicine" but I do know from my own experience that having a pet can make an important impact on one's life, so MIRACLE DOGS at least makes that point loud and clear.
Bad and Good at the Same Time Jul 27, 2004
When I saw it originally on Animal Planet, I really wanted to see it but I had plans that night so I recorded it. Most movies that I record, I keep it as a movie if I liked it. I recorded over it. It wasn't that good. It some good parts in it but not many. The plot was good but little things that were added in, just down-sized it. I thought it would be awesome but maybe that's because I own an English Springer Spaniel named Hershey. Just do yourself a favor, keep your money and buy or rent a better movie!
