“Scoot and Kassie's Christmas Adventure” is a movie about a girl named Kassie (Ariana Bagley), whose family just moved to a new town and is having trouble making friends and adjusting. She sings and goes to church quite a bit and somehow finds her way when she finds a hurt dog. She names the dog Scoot, but is unaware that the dog is really part of a police K-9 unit that got hurt while chasing 2 bank robbers that escaped. Scoot coincidentally runs into the bank robbers again and all this happens during the holiday season creating the cleverly well-thought out title of the movie.
I usually love movies involving dogs, Christmas and aimed towards kids, but was disappointed with “Scoot and Kassie's Christmas Adventure.” Everything from the acting to the plot to pretty much everything about this movie was horrible. The acting was either really bad or overly done. The plot was predictable and boring and almost put me to sleep. The picture quality was blurry at times and not even good DVD quality. To make matters worse, this movie had more cheese than the whole state of Wisconsin.
This movie seems very outdated and feels like it belongs on the Hallmark channel with all the family friendliness and good wholesome writing. The religious overtones were also blatant enough to make even a priest blush. I do not even think my 4 year old niece would want to watch something like this. Unless your last name is Flanders and you live in Springfield, I do not recommend watching “Scoot and Kassie's Christmas Adventure” or even think about picking up this movie. There are so many other good dog, Christmas and/or kid-directed movies out there. For those reasons, I am giving this movie an “F.”
