Lack of good storyline.
There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes
This is a dark and sometimes deeply uncomfortable drama
I absolutely LOVED this movie! I'm not a big moviegoer so I caught this movie on Showtime, nearly a year and a half after it was released. I had heard rumors that someone had claimed that the dogs in this movie were abused but I just couldn't believe that such a great movie could live up to such nonsense.I love Britt Robertson, who also stars in another 2017 movie, The Space Between Us. She played young Hannah. And I remember Peggy Lipton from her early days on television on the Mod Squad (I think I'm revealing my age here).My dog is my closest companion. And, he's not a pet . . . he's an official companion animal. My psychiatrist recommended that I get a companion animal because I used to suffer from severe depression. I took his advice and 7 months later I woke up one morning and my decades of severe depression were GONE! When you're depressed, the last thing you want to do is get out of bed to feed and walk a dog. But, I chose to do it anyway. Over the last four years my dog has become my closest emotional and spiritual companion. I've learned to communicate with him telepathically through images and feelings.When I happened to watch this movie I was moved to tears when I heard that the dog's name was Bailey . . . my last name.
Retriever puppy Bailey is adopted by Ethan. As they grow together, Bailey is responsible for meeting Hannah. But, following an accident, Ethan rejects Hannah. Bailey grows old and dies, only to be reborn as a German Shepherd puppy who becomes a police dog, only to be killed in the line of duty. He is then reborn as a corgi, growing with a student as she gets married and has kids. Then he is reborn as a St Bernard sort of thing. After owners who ill-treat him, he wanders and finds himself meeting up with Ethan, now in middle age. He is able to bring Ethan the happiness which has eluded him, and also to convince Ethan that he is, indeed, Bailey.I believe this to be the first canine reincarnation-themed movie I have ever seen. Cute animal videos - you know the sort of thing I mean, there are millions of them on the internet - press one of my buttons, the one marked "Extreme Intolerance." I do not go "Aaah" - rather, I shout obscenities at the screen. A Dog's Purpose, with its rather twee and self-aware comedy/sentimental narration by Josh Gad as Bailey's voice (very well done, by the way), comes perilously close to "cute animal video" status, as did its spiritual predecessor Marley And Me.But dammit if it didn't make me tear up here and there. Dammit dammit dammit.The humans are OK in a fairly soapy set of stories (interesting to see Peggy Lipton, one of Paul McCartney's paramours back in the 60s, as adult Hannah). But the dogs walk away with the honours.Did I enjoy it? Yes, I did. But I hated myself for it. Cute animals - feh!Incidentally, I showed it to my dog-loving wife and daughter on DVD, and they both scoffed disparagingly at it.
I can't believe I actually fell for the propaganda perpetuated by the animal rights activists and numerous Facebook posts. I almost didn't watch it because I felt bad for the dog they claimed was abused. Actually no dog was harmed during filming and the movie is amazing. So heartfelt and such a beautiful story. So glad I finally watched it. Makes you just wanna spend the day loving on your dog.
Doesn't Hollywood understand killing a dog on screen is the hardest thing to process? This movie does not show appreciation or a realistic view on a dogs life.
