okay, some people just got issues from what i can see from the last comments.

so what if the dog's stunts are not believable? so what if it's not some high-tech or flashy movie and instead in some people's opinion - "a low-budget movie"? for me - i loved that movie.

i thought it wasn't going to be as good as i thought it would be but i had a change of mind - i actually loved it. well of course, when i found out josh hutcherson was in it, i got all curious about it. :P people - it's just a movie. you don't have to put up mean comments up on here. for me, it was moving and the plot was more actually based more on the father and son than on the dog as i thought it would be.. but again i was wrong. :] it had the classic basic character's in a movie - the heroes and the bad guys.

plus, the humor in the moving kept me laughing throughout the movie. i swear, the grin on my face was like implanted or something on there. :] it's a movie based on family relationships - dealing the loss of someone special, and a dog's trust and loyalty.

of course, it's not some Hollywood flashy movie or blockbuster or anything like that but it's enjoyable and will keep you interested, i'm sure of that. :]
