Wipes the floor with all animal movies ever made in Hollywood and doesn't even tries to.
15 January 2010 | by (Portimão, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Contrary to some reviews here, the last thing i can say about this movie is that it's just another cute movie with a dog in it. I've seen many movies with animals in my life and honestly almost all of them were nothing more than just the usual pile of childish garbage that usually comes out of Hollywood filled with brainwashing morals. 10 Promises to my dog - wipes the floor with Marley & Me or all the Benjys you'll ever see coming out of commercial American cinema for one simple reason, 10 Promises to my dog doesn't exploit cute dog scenes just to be some kind of fluffy kids movie. It's clichéd alright, but it manages to avoid using those scenes to drive the movie and surprise surprise, it's not a movie about a cute dog but a movie about the impact of owning an animal. And it's depicted in the most natural way i've ever seen. The owners don't look like Models and do not live glamorous lives, the kids don't play baseball and nobody is trying to treat audiences like idiots by explaining everything, every minute by doing it in your face using dialogues full of American family values passing for universal ones. And best of all 10 Promises to my Dog makes us think about things we weren't expecting at all, specially if we go into this movie thinking it's just like another Disney kids movie. This is a family movie, but believe me, it's not exactly for kids due to its adult emotional content and many layers. It's a movie for everyone who ever owned a dog. Don't be discouraged by its looks and cute movie posters. There is much more to it, touches some interesting areas like death, responsibility and solitude and manages to do this without the audience even noticing it. But above all it has real characters with human trades we can recognize. This is an amazing little movie, it's not just another movie with a dog. If there is a movie that truly depicts the difference between oriental cinema nowadays and American popcorn stuff is this one. It's popcorn alright but it has much better butter in it. See it, before you get a dog or if you ever owned one. It's amazing.
