Matchmaker Mary - Review
April 2009 By The Dove FoundationSynopsis:
After getting an “A” on her sixth grade final exam, Mary (Katherine McNamara) is rewarded with a puppy. Experiencing the love of this little puppy, and seeing several of her adult friends single and unhappy, Mary believes that placing two people together with the assistance of some lovable puppies will result in a happy relationship.
With the help of her best friend, Jason, (Jacob Hays, “Disney’s Really Short Report”, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader”) Aunt Karen (Dee Wallace, “E.T.”, “The New Lassie”) and Cameron Banks, (Jeff Fahey, “Lost”,“Wyatt Earp”), the four of them become self described matchmaking angels, while along the way, Aunt Karen and Cameron, not only become accomplices in their scheme but also get “matched”. As her success ratio continues,
Mary utilizes her new matchmaking angels to carry out the biggest and most important plan, to bring her own parents back together again. Seen through the eyes of a young girl on the verge of womanhood, Mary discovers that puppy love is more than just a trip to the animal shelter. This story illustrates how the lives of six people can be changed with a little help from a pre-teen matchmaker and three adorable puppies.Dove Worldview:
It is amazing what three puppies and one young girl can do when it comes to matchmaking. This heartwarming story is about how one young girl not only helps to find good homes for the siblings to her new puppy, but helps with relationships among the people surrounding these cute little pups. Everyone will enjoy watching Mary and the puppies as her plan goes into motion to help two lonely people, her aunt, and even her parents.
If you are a dog lover then you will relate to the joy these pets can bring. This is a fantastic movie for the entire family. "Mary Matchmaker" is awarded the Dove "Family -Approved" Seal for all ages.
