REVIEW: After the success of
"Space Buddies", it was expected that a sequel was to follow. The main problem with this film is that it doesn't bring anything new to the table. In
"Space Buddies" the idea of having talking puppies going to
space, proof to be cute and fun for the entire family. In
"Santa Buddies" the main idea doesn't change at all, same cute talking puppies getting into trouble. However, the story in this sequel is
as expected as it can be. I found the film to be better than
"Space Buddies" with the potential of becoming
one of those B film of the holidays.
Overall this film can be categorized as a kids' movie and not a family movie.
