Trivia

Near the end of the story, Milo takes Enzo for a ride in a replica 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. Only 33 original Testa Rossas were made, from 1957 to 1961, and they are highly prized for their racing success at the hands of legendary drivers. In 2014, an original 1957 Testa Rossa sold privately for $39.8 million. See more »

Goofs

It's unrealistic that when Eve takes their daughter to go stay with her parents, that for at least two days she left Enzo (dog) alone and did not tell Denny about any of this. See more »

Quotes

Enzo: He picked me out of a pile of pups, a tangled mass of paws and tails. He'd stopped at the farm on his way home from the speedway at Yakima. Even back then, I knew I was different than other dogs. My soul just felt more human.

1st time I ever felt the desire to write a movie review!
10 August 2019 | by nigelrarnoldSee all my reviews

I have never reviewed a movie before but having seen this film on its opening day, not the kind of movie I'm normally attracted to (I booked it really for my wife as it was our wedding anniversary yesterday) I was so surprised how much I really enjoyed it! It has something for everyone to connect with. Beautifully put together and performed. But be warned, this is one moving movie. Even the toughest of guys will need the Kleenex nearby. My face was wet! Just as you have managed to hold back one tear-jerker response, along comes another. A real emotional roller-coaster which leaves you in awe at the end. Best real movie I've seen in a long time. Kevin was amazing. So was Amanda and Milo. Real characters with real feeling. You should all be so proud of this. My friend read the book and said it had the same affect. Clearly you have done the book due justice. Just Fabulous!
