LOW MARKS FOR REALISM IN KEEPING SHEEP OR TRAINING HERDING DOGS OR FIRE RESCUE
Verified purchase
Pretty corn-ball execution all in all. Sad because the story was good. The romance moved way too fast, and that added to the corn-ball effect. Mature woman's mother dies. She comes back home for the funeral and moves in with her father and brother after being away 10-20 years, gets a dog, dates the local vet, designs some sweaters, has local women dye, spin and use her brother's raw sheep wool to knit some sweaters during their once a week knitting bee, trains herself and the dog to herd sheep, falls in love with the vet, gets her dog to rescue 5 children and an adult from a forest fire by tracking them using scent from the childrens' jackets and herding them all out to safety, comes in 2nd place in herding competition with her dog that got burned rescuing people from the fire, sells her sweater design to a high end designer label in NY - gets order for 500 sweaters, and wins $25,000 for her hero dog to become the new Pedigree brand mascot, all in about one month's time...and she still has time to keep her hair and make-up perfect in every scene - even when she first wakes up in the morning and goes to the barn in her PJs, slippers and bathrobe with coffee. The film ends with some smooching scenes with the vet. They should have called this Wonder Woman. Good cast poorly put together movie.

Fun Entertaining Movie
Verified purchase
I love everything about this movie....Loved the cast and wanted to garb sweet Lucky and bring her home....The movie has a bit of everything including family, romance, challenge and Lucky bravely saving the kids from a forest fire. The plot line is great and it is a feel good movie with few negative vibes....Lucky does her best to steal your heart away and has me in tears every time i watch this really great movie again....It is a sweet movie than will make you smile and if you are a sucker for adorable little Border Collies may bring a few tears to your eyes. This movie is a refreshing reminder of what really is important in our daily lives and reminds us how much good is still out there if we just stay focused and upbeat....

Cute, but typical Hallmark
Verified purchase
There isn't much to say about Hallmark movies, they are all cut from the same cookie cutter. But I do have to make one comment. You do not feed straw to horses. haha, They would starve, And why do they ALWAYS have to have the women appear to be so darn dumb. Of course they are all beautiful in Hallmark movies there are no normal people, Everyone comes from a Hollywood photo shoot. Oh well that is what people expect from Hallmark. But personally I would like to see Hallmark deepen their actor pool. And make things a bit more real. Some of the older Hallmark movies have a lot more depth and story line. I always look at the date, I find that the ones that are at the very least 10 years old are much better than ones made more recently.

routine formula romance for dog lovers; has CC not subtitles
Verified purchase
My wife, who is a dog fancier, liked this one in spite of the (rather long) sequence in which children are in danger in a forest fire. It gave us a good picture of how a border collie is trained to herd sheep, and what a competition looks like. There is a romantic story, and conflict in the family, but don't expect comedy or more than a touch of humor.

The music is simple and works well for the story, but the picture is nothing special: there is one scene where the picture jumps as if the editor had to fix a problem and didn't have enough to work with. In a later sequence certain special effects look artificial, which is distracting. It does not have subtitles; instead it has Closed Captions (CC: inferior, and they don't work with the better quality video connections)

There's a slight hardness in most of the main characters (common enough in life, perhaps, and accepted as normal by many viewers). But Lisa does give her brother a good little sermon in a sentence or two, and that tips the star rating up from 2+ to 3 stars.

You Lucky Dog
Verified purchase
I love dogs and this is a very heartwarming movie. It's about a girl who moved away from a small country town to go to the big city.
She didn't do as well as she hoped so she came home for her mother's funeral. She ends of staying with her dad and brother long enough
to help get some sheep on her father's cattle farm. She proceeds to get a dog from the local vet who was turned in by one of her
neighbors because he couldn't do anything with the sheep. All the dog needed is a little love and attention, which is what happens
with his new owner. The movie shows what it means to not give up on something or someone just because things don't go the way you
want them to go. This is a good, clean, family movie and is very injoyable to watch. There are real lessons to be learned.

A Struggling family Restored to Love, Community, Peace and Happiness
Verified purchase
A struggling family brought together by a valiant little dog and the memory of a loved mother. A very interesting and beautiful country background; great cast, photography, music, story and directing.

Good for a lazy afternoon
Verified purchase
If you are the moviegoer that looks for accuracy then you should move on, a blind man would have better luck at a game of darts than the author did at being accurate. But, If you are the moviegoer looking for a story that keeps your attention and actors that can do a decent job then you might enjoy this “B” movie. Good for a lazy afternoon when you have an hour or so to kill.
