We gave it a C-

Since their foster home doesn’t allow pets, siblings Andi (Emma Roberts) and Bruce (Jake T. Austin) make over an abandoned hotel as a makeshift kennel for their dog, Friday, and neighborhood strays. All goes well until their occupancy rate gets too high and neighbors start complaining about the noise. Yes, that is Lisa Kudrow playing their foster mom.
