The Hotel For Dogs isn't a swank, professionally run facility, but instead one started by two driven children (Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin) who let their imaginations run wild when finding an abandoned hotel on a quest for a safe home for their pooch, Friday. I got a sneak peek at this film – opening Jan. 16 – and must say: I. Loved. It.

First off, you've gotta go in with an open mind (obviously, this couldn't really happen), but I can't remember a film with more insanely cute dogs doing insanely cute things (kissing, pouting, posing, etc.). This is definitely the one time to round up any children in your life and use them as your excuse . . . if you need one. Most of the dogs were discovered (read: rescued), then trained to be actors in a noisy crash course – check out a behind-the-scenes clip below.
