Cute, heart warming, if you can overlook the agendas and stereotypes
12 January 2019 | by jfenn53058See all my reviews

I went with children ages 4, 10, and 12, and all (including me) thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The 'agenda' items like the married gay couple about mid-way through, and the war veterans suffering from depression utilizing dogs for therapy, went over the heads of the kids.

So if you can be adult enough to overlook the agendas and stereotypes and enjoy a nicely paced (no slow parts) family movie reminiscent of 'Homeward Bound' without the sassiness, do so. Take the kids or grandkids and you'll come away from the movie the way movies like this are expected to leave you - happy, wiping away a few happy tears, and all the loose ends tied up in a bow.
