THE PLOT THUS FAR
When college-bound “animal whisperer” Maya Dolittle (Kyla Pratt) assists movie star Tiffany Monaco’s (Tegan Moss) Chihuahua, she gets sucked into the allure and flashiness of Hollywood after an impressed Tiffany offers her a plum television gig. But Maya’s wisecracking mutt, Lucky, helps her hold on to her perspective — and her true dream of becoming a veterinarian — in this adventurous, cuddly family comedy.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Maya helps Tiffany solve a major problem and is then offered her own TV show, The Animal Talkers (with Tiffany as co-host) as evil businessmen begin to exploit her. Eventually she’s more than a bit dismayed at interviewing the owners of white hip-hop rabbits who wear diamond locks as fashion statements as opposed to being able to know how to really help sick and injured pets.
