i thought this movie was amazing, really inspirational. a lot of people dont get the main idea in this movie. its about a man finding his way through life, and along the way helping a dog that has suffered through his.

Disappointing movie towards the end will have to read the book

Nothing special... Devon's "recovery" seemed much to rushed/skipped-over compared to the amount of time spent on his behavioural problems... and the movie seemed short, so it's not like that had to cut it out.

Jeff Bridges plays a slob amidst a flock of other repulsive characters in this pointless, implausible, unresolved, exploitive dog of a film. Ryder, the border collie who co-stars along with 4 canine stand-ins, deserves much better.

Dumb dumb dumb... boring boring boring! Even "YOU LUCKY DOG" was better... and I didn't think much of that, either!
