Movie propaganda

The rules are about to be housebroken.

When their new guardians forbid 16-year-old Andi (Emma Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Jake T Austin) to have a pet, Andi has to use her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog, Friday. The resourceful kids stumble upon an abandoned hotel and using Bruce's talents as a mechanical genius, transform it into a magical dog paradise for Friday and eventually for all Friday's friends. When barking dogs make the neighbours suspicious, Andi and Bruce use every invention they have to avoid anyone discovering "who let the dogs in."

NB: All orphans do not get adopted so if you can help, contact Barnardos.

The comedy, family movie Hotel for dogs is directed by Thor Freudenthal and stars Emma Roberts, Don Cheadle, Lisa Kudrow.
