A Belle For Christmas: DVD Review











The Movie:

Glenn Barrows (Dean Cain) is a recent widower doing his best to raise his young kids Elliot (Jet Jurgensmeyer) and Phoebe (Meyrick Murphy) who really miss their mom. When the Barrows adopt an adorable puppy named Belle during the holiday season, it seems that their healing may have begun. But will Glen’s dog-hating, gold-digging new girlfriend (Kristy Swanson) spoil their newfound happiness, or can Elliott and Phoebe pull off a daring Christmas Eve rescue of their beloved new pet?

Tis the season for Christmas movies galore and here we have one of Cinema Deviant’s first for the season. You already know that it has to do with a puppy and let’s just say that puppies mixed with Christmas will have any kid interested. The story plays out very much like the usual “kids don’t like the new girlfriend” kind of film but it actually is very light and fun film to watch with your children. Cain gives a pretty good performance but unfortunately everyone else lacks in that field. It feels more like it’s because of the writing rather than the actual delivery in some cases though. Seeing the kids take the reins of the film in the second half was probably my son’s favorite part of it all. He laughed and cheered them on as they went on their mission in the final act. If you’re looking for something more than what I just described then you may find yourself wanting to just skip passed this one but kids will definitely like this film and it’s a great holiday movie to watch as a family.

A Belle For Christmas is available NOW on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment
