You’d think every Fargo character would know that rule pretty well by now, but someone had to learn it the hard way this week.

Ray poses as Emmit again and films a sex tape with Nikki (who’s wearing a long red “hooker wig”), placing it in an envelope on »

Lasse Hallström’s canine tale is steeped in sentimentality, heavy with nostalgia and full of furry charm – but ultimately banal
“What is the meaning of life? Are we here for a reason?” asks the protagonist pup in the unironically titled A Dog’s Purpose. Dog lover and director Lasse Hallström, who also made My Life As a Dog and Hachi: A Dog’s Tale, follows one canine (voiced by Josh Gad) through its various reincarnations (deaths notwithstanding) and respective owners: a German shepherd police dog, an endearingly sluggish corgi and, in its most adorable iteration, a ginger-eyelashed red retriever named Bailey. Said retriever lands in the scrawny arms of eight-year-old only child Ethan (Bryce Gheisar), the canine companion a welcome distraction from his alcoholic father (Luke Kirby). Teen Ethan and his girlfriend are played by Netflix TV stars Kj Apa (Riverdale’s Archie) and Britt Robertson (Girlboss’s Sophia) respectively, »

Must Hate Dogs would perhaps be a more fitting title for Lasse Hallström’s peculiar puppy snuff film, A Dog’s Purpose. What other explanation could there be for his decision to allow Josh Gad to gratingly narrate every last shred of affection for our canine chums from cinema-goers’ hearts? A Dog’s Purpose is a schmaltzy mash up of emotional manipulation and kitsch, as one tiny doggy soul wafts from host to host learning inane lessons about humankind and leaving a trail of corpses in its wake.
We open on a snuggly pup, nestled amongst its furry siblings, slowly acclimatising to the sights and sounds of planet earth. We flinch in recognition (and slump in resignation) as we realise that, dear god yes, that is the voice of Frozen’s Olaf trying to sell us on this cutesy, cynically family-friendly feature. But wait, the poor homeless »

A Dog’s Purpose review by Paul Heath, May 2017.
A Dog’s Purpose, which is actually based on the novel of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, who also co-writes the screenplay, is broken down into several chunks, each one narrated by Gad telling the story from the point of view of a different dog. The narrative covers the life of that dog from birth to death, and, once it dies, is reincarnated into a different breed, and sometimes different sex. The first, set sometime in the 1950s, follows golden retriever Bailey, a dog owned by an eight year old named Ethan and his family. The story spans the course of a decade until the teenage Ethan (K.J. Apa) moves away to college, »

There’s a notion in Hollywood that working with kids and animals could be challenging – but not for Dennis Quaid, who seemed to have a great time shooting family drama A Dog’s Purpose. Perhaps it’s the fact he carried bacon around in his pocket helped.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with the star, to discuss whether he’s ever had any horror stories from working with kids or animals, and just how he felt about the canine in this particular movie so frequently licking his face. We also asked if he’s kept in touch, and whether he’d like to be able to talk to dogs.
He went on to speak about his collaboration with director Lasse Hallstrom, and his sort-of-collaboration with Josh Gad, and speaks briefly about his next project, the science fiction production Kin, also starring James Franco and Jack Reynor. »

After a career embracing mainstream success, drug abuse and eastern mysticism, the veteran actor says he has ‘more fire in his belly’ than ever. But his new film is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons …
Dennis Quaid’s first dog was a basset hound called Gertrude. She wasn’t, he says with a laugh, the kind that would perform the rough-and-tumble tricks like the dogs in his new film – basset hounds not being known for their athleticism – but she was loyal and “my everything. And I was hers, too.” Quaid is a dog person. There is a brilliant photograph of him on a Montana ranch, where he used to live, surrounded by his dogs. One of his terriers is sitting on a horse.
So when his agent told him he had been offered a part in the film adaptation of A Dog’s Purpose, Quaid said he would do it, »
