Goofs

In the prologue of the movie, look carefully at the German helmet on the shelf in Willie's bedroom. It is actually a modified Spanish helmet. German and Spanish helmets are the exact same shape and size but the Spanish version has extra rivets on the outer shell and a totally different liner. See more »

Heartwarming heartbreaker
28 November 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Anybody who had a close friend during childhood who happened to be a canine should go for this one. Like most of the pooch films it was corny in spots, but at least Skip wasn't endowed with human intelligence. Of course, the mean men were around to cause trouble for the dog and boy; can't get by without them. Fun movie, but be sure to bring along a crying towel.
