Better than the first
19 May 2019 | by cwren-60694See all my reviews

Alright, let's just get it out there - yes, the movie is shamelessly manipulative and tear-jerking. But come on, if you saw the first one then you already knew that anyway. What the hell did you expect?

That out of the way, this movie is very well done. Much better out together than the first one that seemed a bit all over the map with the various lives sewn together haphazardly. The single cohesive storyline here is excellent, heart warming, and yes, sad. Many times. But you already knew that and were smart enough to bring tissues, right?

My only quibble is with the passage of time- at one point, the timeline jumps forward 8ish years while two puppies remain puppies - no, I'm not kidding. Also, there is a weird mishmash of old and new cars, technologies, etc., presumably as they try to obscure where in time we are. Especially since one character is something like 120 years old by the end of the film by my calculations. But this is really a minor point and one that is easily overlooked. I understand that it would have been difficult to tell the story otherwise.

So, the TL;DR version is if you were thinking about seeing it, you are going to love it.
