Never Received My Order

by Diane Wetzel on 7/10/2009

I have never received this DVD.(My Dog Skip) It was for my friend. I did receive a DVD that isn't mine called Making Music Hi-5, a kid's dvd I presume. It was sold to Debra Kopecky at 510 Tiger Street in Harrisburg, SD 57032-2058. I'm sure she is missing her DVD if it's for her children. Would like to get this resolved.

Editors Note
Note A heartwarming coming-of-age tale set in 1940s Yazoo, Mississippi. Willie Morris (Frankie Muniz) is an introverted eight-year-old whose best friend is Dink Jenkins (Luke Wilson), a high school football star. Willie's mother convinces his stern father to buy Willie a puppy for his ninth birthday, in light of the fact that Dink has left Yazoo to fight in the war. Immediately, Willie's world brightens. When he stumbles upon a team of evil bootleggers and welcomes home a despondent Dink, he must learn a very valuable lesson about life. Based on Morris' memoir, MY DOG SKIP should have even the most hardened viewer reaching for the tissues.
Plot Summary
Summary Willie Morris (Muniz) is an eight-year-old citizen of World War II-era Yazoo, Missippippi. A little on the shy side, he is continually the brunt of the jokes of his more extroverted, athletic classmates, most notably boisterous Big Boy Wilkinson and his two equally devious henchmen. Willie's only true friend is high school football star Dink Jenkins (Wilson), his encouraging next door neighbor who also happens to be heading off to war. When Willie's mother Ellen (Lane) proposes to his father, Jack (Bacon) the idea of giving the boy a puppy for his ninth birthday, protective war veteran Jack protests, reason being that his withdrawn son isn't ready for the responsibility and emotional investment which comes with the territory. Jack finally gives in, though, giving Willie not only a new best friend, a Jack Russell terrier named Skip, but also the acceptance of other children, including the prettiest girl in school, Rivers Applewhite. Everything is perfect for a while, but, Willie's innocent existence in Yazoo is rattled when he and Skip discover that some mean bootleggers are hiding their product in the town cemetery and his idol Dink returns from war-torn Europe with some demons to confront.
