He is the author of the cult movie "Forrest Gump," "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," "Back to the Future." Intriguing was the fact that the main role of the mean and cruel old man Ebenezer Scrooge made brilliant Jim Carrey. I looked a long, boring story is not entirely clear and the result was a bitter disappointment. Therefore, in the year of the dog and on the eve of Merry Christmas recommend all the movie "12 Dogs of Christmas". The action takes place during the Great Depression in Doverville - a city that hates dogs. The main heroine, a brave little girl, Emma, played by the wonderful fourteen-American actress Jordan-Claire Green. With the help of friends, she rescues a dog shelter and returns the city to celebrate the tradition of Christmas. Hopefully someone will look this film will not be disappointed. And who has seen, can see again, I am sure, I will discover something new. "
