I had heard about this, but I saw it on TV about a week ago. I didn't think it was that bad, but it had many problems.

Story: A retelling of the Dickens story, A Christmas Carol . . . only with the main dog characters of All Dogs Go To Heaven (mainly the sequel and the TV series). Save Christmas by stopping the bad guy (or in this case, the character behind the evil, Belladonna) and turn them good. Yeah. We've seen it all before. It's predictable. Could have been better.

Characters/Voices: Ugh. Horrible. The only voices that made me happy were Itchy and Killer (mainly because I think they were only a couple of the original voices that came back for this). Most of the characters were not as good as I remembered them in the previous movies. The new characters were very minor and didn't seem that very important IMO.

Music/Songs: Corny. Corny as in it would keep a group of 3 to 6 year olds busy for about an hour. The songs were badly sung, but could have been better with better voices IMO.

Animation: Obvious DTV work. It had glitches and characters started looking weird when they talked during much of it. At least the colors were nice, and helped set the mood for much of the movie.

Overall: Not worth it. The cover looks nice, but don't judge a movie by its cover. It's the opposite. But it is worth at least one viewing, especially during the Christmas season, just don't buy it.
