Overview

Hotel for Dogs

Adapted from author Lois Duncan's 1971 children's book of the same name, director Thor Freudenthal's Hotel for Dogs follows two mischievous orphans as they attempt to hide dozens of stray dogs in an abandoned hotel. Disheartened by their new guardians' announcement that pets are strictly forbidden, 16-year-old Andi (Emma Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Jake T. Austin), race to find a home for their loyal dog Friday. Fortunately for Friday, there's an abandoned hotel just around the corner, and Bruce possesses just the kind of mechanical smarts needed to transform the rundown inn into a four-star retreat for canines. For a while, Friday and his friends have it made, but when the neighbors start to get suspicious, Andi and Bruce resort to every trick in the book in order to prevent their secret from being discovered. Don Cheadle, Emma Roberts, and Lisa Kudrow star in a family-friendly film penned by screenwriter Jeff Lowell.

I had heard pretty bad reviews about this movie, but when I saw it I was amazed. I'm a teenager and I loved this movie! I watched it with my little brother, dad, and step-mom and we all loved it. There are laughs for kids and adults in this movie. There's also a bit of crying. This is a great movie to watch if you want a laugh with your family. So grab your family...and your dog, and watch this movie :D

This movie is great and it shows that kids can do meaniningfull things while they are still kids. The combination of the animals, kids and adults in this movie was great. I think that the emotion that these kids showed for the animals that nobody else seemed to care about was great and the ideas the writers came up with were great.
