When Willie Morris (Frankie Muniz) is in the woods with his Dad Jack (Kevin Bacon) and Skip and they hear a gunshot from hunters, Jack pushes Willie down and says to take a knee while hollering to the hunters, "Hello! Over here at 3 o'clock!" Only problem is, they don't know which direction the hunters are facing, so they have no idea where they are in relation to the hunters. Saying "3 o'clock" is totally irrelevant, only the sound of their voice gives the hunters knowledge of their direction. See more »
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.
