I do agree the story is predictable, and the ending didn't quite excite or move me. However, it does work surprisingly well as a man-and-dog buddy movie. The film is at least nice to watch, the soundtrack is decent, the direction is good and the script does have a few laughs that makes the experience enjoyable. And the acting is very spirited- Jerry-Lee is the star of the show, very well trained and cute, while James Belushi is always watchable and Mel Harris is appealing and sexy.
Overall, this is a surprisingly good buddy movie with enough humorous moments and spirited performances to make it worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
