Mill Creek has released three fun family movies, Summer’s Shadow, Ugly Benny and Designer Pups just in time for the dog days of summer:) All three movies are Dove approved for all ages, available for the first time on DVD and perfect for summertime.
"Funny, sweet and uplifting, Summer's Shadow, available now, is an entertaining and endearing story inspired by true events about a bond between a girl with a big heart and a very special stray dog.
All it took was a sweet, stray dog to change the life of 12-year-old Summer Larsen and those around her. Summer has a big heart and maturity beyond her years. And Shadow, named for always following her around, was destined to be her dog. But for how long? And at what price?
With controversy building in the neighborhood, Summer is determined to do what's right and care for Shadow. With the help of a reclusive neighbor and a nerdy boy picked on by the popular kids, she learns a worthy lesson that following your conscience is not always easy...but the reward can be invaluable."
"Ugly Benny, the second release, will be available on July 7th and is another heartwarming story about an “ugly” puppy that befriends and inspires an entire town.
We've all heard the saying "you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover," and perhaps nobody embodies the sage wisdom of that advice better than Benny, or "Ugly Benny," as he has come to be called by those who have encountered him at "For Pet's Sake Pet Store."
A fuzzy, frumpled, tiny ball of frazzled yarn with four paws and two sweet eyes peeking out, Benny certainly wasn't much to look at when he first arrived as a puppy on the doorstep of the pet store. Sam and Emma found him waiting there in a little box one morning, just staring up at them with those tiny, lovable little eyes, and to this day no one knows where he came from or who brought him there.
inspiring and uplifting."
"Clear the runway for fashion’s newest designers! Designer Pups will release on August 4th and will make its broadcast premiere on Starz in October 2015. The Dove Foundation says it is "a charming movie for the entire family".
Young upcoming fashionista, Stacy Leiman, gets a rude awakening when she fails to land an internship under one of the city's biggest fashion designers, Michel.
Thinking her dreams of making it as a fashion designer are lost, Stacy gets her big break when she runs into the movie actress, Chloe Martelle by accident. Stacy, along with her two fashion-forward pups, Coco and Stella, "bark proof" Chloe's dress before her big red carpet event.
Stella and Coco assist Stacy in choosing the best-looking prints and help design clothes for red carpet events. After their overnight success, Michel begins losing clients to Stella, Coco and Stacy. When the designer finds out what is happening, he dognaps Stella and Coco right before the annual runway show competition."
Being huge fans of both movies and dogs, our family loved all three of these great titles! They are perfect for family movie night or lazy afternoon movie parties:) Knowing that they are Dove-approved gives me peace of mind that they are family friendly and age appropriate for every family member. Thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment, one lucky ABCD Diaries reader will get to wrap up summer with a DVD prize pack featuring all 3 of these fantastic movies!
