Synopsis:

Times get tough in Dog River, Saskatchewan, when Mayor Fitzy blows the town’s budget on a risky investment. With no electricity, no water, and local businesses dropping like flies, the town’s residents have no choice but to pull together to keep their beloved hometown from going under.

Suddenly, the normally-apathetic Brent (Butt) is spurred into action, buying the shuttered town pub and entering Dog River into the“Quaintest Town in Canada”competition. With a chance to win $75,000, the townsfolk make one last rally to best their arch-rival town of Wullerton, head off big corporate investors and “quaintify” the town. Will their efforts be enough?

Based on the Canadian Comedy Award-winning TV series — with all of your favourite characters returning for this big screen reunion — the latest tale of Dog River is sure to charm, amuse and delight.
