It's a real tear-jerker...
15 April 2001 | by (Olympia, Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the saddest movies I've seen, just because of when the dogs are in trouble, and also when they're lonely or hurt. I really like how the story is about a dog who is transformed into a human to find his family; it was pretty cool. I would reccommend a big box of tissues for this movie-just to be prepared.
