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.

Watch it for the good boy
5 May 2020 | by cardsrockSee all my reviews

Movies like these live or die by the dog. Luckily, this film has a terrific doggo at the center of its story and is narrated perfectly by Kevin Costner. Enzo is by far the most interesting character in the movie and is just so dang adorable. You'll get your heartstrings tugged at frequently, but most of it is pretty good drama and handled well. Needless to say there are a lot of cliches in a film like this, but you can overlook them because it's such a sweet and heartfelt story.
