Witness the trials and tribulations of a young family through the eyes of their family pet, a Golden Retriever with a wise man's soul. Fable-like theme in relating the message "keep trying and do not be afraid of losing" in navigating life’s ordeals.

Too many mentions and visuals of bodily functions, ridiculous narrator (what is with this stupid trend of dogs narrating movies), and just plain depressing. Apparently I watched a different movie because I hated this one. Not uplifting or encouraging at all. Just a really bad movie. I'm SO glad I didn't pay money to see it. SO disappointed because I had such high hopes.

I had read the book years ago and remembered really enjoying the book. I remembered the basics but not the specifics so it was great to watch the movie and really be able to enjoy it and not compare it to the book. Another must for dog lovers but have the tissues ready!!!

Tonight I watched the Golden Globes. This movie wasn't nominated and won't likely win any Oscars. But, it is the BEST movie I've watched in a very long time.

This comes from an old lady who binge watched Hallmark and Lifetime holiday movies.

I wanted to see this movie because NASCAR champ Rusty Wallace is my cousin. But, i fell in love with the dog and the unconditional love we receive from our furry friends. I'm not a Garth Stein fan, but this is a beautiful story. Spoiler alert: you'll need tissues.

This was the best movie that I have watched in a LONG time....and was equally enjoyed by my husband and kid. This is a must see!

If you ever grew up with a dog you will relate to this movie.
I enjoyed it but keep your tissues close.

this movie was so good. it is almost exactly like the book it was based off of (also called racing in the rain). this movie is so emotional and will definitely make you cry. totally recommend it.
