Storyline

In a leafy Boston suburb, David pushes his dog in a baby carriage to a pier on a pond. He secures a rope around the carriage and the dog, and he pushes it into the water. At home, he has fish in several aquariums in the basement. His parents show concern about him and try truncated communication; his older brothers punch him in the arm. His next-door neighbor, Ellen, who goes to a private school, waves hello. He and two friends, both geeks and into fish as well, go to the evening meeting of the Boston Aquarium Society. David notices Ellen there; he leaves a lecture to find her in a room with penguins and jellies ("they're not fish"). They talk and she shows him something. Only connect.

Really?
22 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, in the opening scene - he ties his senior dog to a wagon, pulls the wagon to the edge of a dock on a pond and pushes the dog and the wagon into the water. He stands there for a moment and you are shown the peaceful pond - where the dog is probably squirming, crying and trying to find a way to live under the water - but will die anyway. The the boy turns and walks away.

Based on the other review - I thought this would be a nice movie about a boy overcoming a difficult situation at home. What I didn't realize is that this movie was a horror. Nor did I realize that it was about a mentally disturbed boy with violent tendencies. The opening scene was enough to turn my stomach. How could I continue to watch the movie and hope for tones of love and friendship, when he just killed his dog? I don't know if they addressed this issue as the movie went on. And I guess, if you are immune to this kind of visual, then maybe the rest of the movie is okay.

For me, it was too much. And for a movie labeled as one of friendship and romance, the opening was truly unexpected and for me, ended the experience.
