Fluke is the best family drama I have ever watched because this film is the only one that made me cry. I would recommend it to everyone who likes movies about dogs, however you will need hankies to watch this one. If you have a chance to watch it, to pick it in your video-club, don't miss it! You will be thrilled!!!
