Camp as Emily Elizabeth was smarter-than-her-years interesting at times, but very ordinary at others. Whitehall was pretty good, with light laughs and expressions and delivery that reminded me a bit of T.J. Miller. Everyone else was annoying.

The dog effects are mediocre, soft compared to the sharp details in background and motion that is a bit too fluid and swingy. You can tell where they cheated in a few scenes by cutting before a character’s interaction with the dog and using harsh light to obscure finer details.
