Cute love story for animal lovers
27 October 2018 | by asarandesSee all my reviews

I liked it. I have seen Rhys Darby on Modern Family and Life in Pieces and thought he was hilarious. So I decided to check this out despite that one horrendous review. I liked it. It's nice to see a movie about a man being kind to an animal and being a good guy in general. it was light and cute with a fantastic soundtrack. Loved that they did a Queen video at the end.
