A shy boy is unable to make friends in Yazoo City, Mississippi in 1942, until his parents give him a terrier puppy for his ninth birthday. The dog, which he names Skip, becomes well known and loved throughout the community and enriches the life of the boy, Willie, as he grows into manhood. Based on the best-selling Mississippi memoir by the late Willie Morris. Written by
Director Jay Russell wanted a smooth haired fox terrier to play Skip, the same breed as the original Skip, but he wasn't able to find trained ones. Early in preproduction, he used a dog with no acting experience for a shoot of second unit type footage and quickly found difficulty in doing even basic things, like keeping the dog in the frame. He concluded they needed dogs trained in acting, so similar looking Jack Russell terriers were used (at 07:00 in the director's commentary). See more »

[Dink arrives the wine storage]
I bet it ain't old Dink. Hey, need a jar of hooch, buddy? Millard, fetch a pint for Dink.
Listen, you boys need to get on out of here.
[turns to Willie]
This your buddy? You know how much he and that mongrel cost us tonight?
I said you need to get out of here.
Hey Millard, listen to who's talking? Mr. Hitler's best friend.
[Millard teases Dink, and Junior takes a shovel]
And I think it's you who better get out of here.

I'm a 36-year-old man, and this movie made me cry big time.
Folks, this movie knocked me for a tear-jerking loop when I first saw it, and it knocked me again just now (as it aired on TNT). I had a dog exactly like Skip, and growing up, I was a lot like Willie. The movie will hit incredibly close to home for anyone who loves dogs or who had a close relationship with a dog in his or her childhood.
The movie's beginning and its ending are its best moments. In between, the movie carries along pretty well. I dare say, the last five minutes are absolutely some of the most powerful moments any dog lover may ever see in a movie.
