Not a decent film even for Old Yeller
13 October 2018 | by jprheddSee all my reviews

The title of this review refers to the dog star who I instantly recognized. Not even he did a good job in this film. Very poorly written storyline with nothing of great interest so I gave it a five only because I like dog pictures. Also of note is the dad who went on to play the Marlboro Man.
