I thought that this was a wonderful movie. I have never seen anything like it. I am not a dog person but I will admit I really enjoy seeing the animals get better. The story was interesting, the acting was great and the music was just right. I think I cried for a half hour or so. This is a movie that everyone should see.

This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I'm from Texas so my friends have been raving about this movie for months. It's really a story about two best friends who spend the entire movie trying to get the biggest dog and the biggest prize. It's a great family movie and the cast is absolutely amazing. Kevin Bacon is the star and he makes this movie just as good as he did in 24. So many people can't take him seriously and he's still funny. I hope everyone loves this movie as much as I did.

For the love of god, go see this movie, you'll thank me. I never really got into Star Wars, but this movie was a joy to watch. A real treat. Go see it now, and enjoy. It's a new take on the original, and a lot of fun. Give it a chance, you'll like it. I gave it a 10.

I have watched this movie many times and still find it just as good as the first time I saw it. It is a story of a dog that loses his owner and finds his way back home, but soon is faced with the obstacle of the pack. An example of an animated family film, and I found that to be very clever and thought-provoking. The acting was amazing, and the writing was also very witty and witty. And that is one of the things I love about animation movies. I also found it to be touching and it did not fall into cliche's like most family films. But the funny parts also got me and that made me cry and laugh at the same time. It is a great movie to watch on a rainy day with your kids, and if you are in a film class you should watch it to learn a few new things.

I think it's not as bad as most people make it out to be. I read the bad reviews and thought it was terrible, but I think it was just misunderstood. It's a funny movie that does not take itself too seriously, but it is still very sweet and has heart. The whole time I was thinking it's just a movie and didn't have any big problems. It's not too preachy but it's still very good. If you don't like movies that have an ending that makes you think but doesn't say everything about it, you won't like this movie. It's a happy ending. It's a fairy tale that isn't afraid to have a heart, and it has a good message and message that people can get behind.

I haven't seen any movie quite like this. My wife and I saw it in a small theater with a bunch of family and friends. The theater was packed, and my wife, who is much older than me, has never been in a theater to see a movie this large. The audience seemed to really enjoy the movie. I was in tears. The director, director, and stars of the movie were fantastic. I haven't seen any movie quite like this. I went to the theater for my daughter's birthday and it was fantastic. My daughter loved it. It is a great movie for children and adults. I hope more people enjoy it.

A dog's purpose is one of the greatest movies ever. When I first saw this movie, I thought it was a fun, silly movie about a dog that comes to save a boy from some deranged people. However, I must admit, I was a little surprised to find that this movie was actually something more. In the movie, you can see how the two different groups have created a family. When one of the kids dies, he has to give up his dog, but the boy loves him, so he's happy to keep him. He was even happy to leave the dog in the hands of his little sister, and her husband, who is extremely loving and devoted to his pet. After the death of the boy's brother, the girl's husband gives the dog back to the boy. The girl, her husband and the boy then spend a couple days watching the dog and the boy interact. At the end of the day, the boy still has a great respect for the dog, and his new friends. The boy was able to get to know these people, and the dog can actually relate to the people and shows that he is a dog. This movie was truly heartwarming and so sad. This is a great movie, that kids will love. This is a movie that parents will love. This is a movie that I can watch over and over again.

I can't believe I never saw this before. The movie was absolutely amazing. My kids loved it. It is a family film. If you have kids then I would definitely see this. There is lots of humor. I have to say this movie is also one of my favorite family films. The movie doesn't have a bad scene in it. The storyline is good and the movie was so good. This is definitely a movie that will make my children and I want to see it again. Thank you Disney for making such a great movie!

Now when I was little, I was just a little boy. Then I saw a movie called "The Lego Movie" and my life got a lot more interesting. I was 14 years old at the time, but I really enjoyed that movie. I had never heard of this movie until I saw it. But I really liked it. The story is very realistic. I loved the characters and the movie was very fun. I am very much a fan of James Franco and I think he was awesome in this movie. When I saw it, I was like this is a great movie, I can't wait for the movie to come out on DVD. I think people who like this movie will enjoy this movie a lot more then they enjoyed the Lego movie. The Lego movie is like a sequel to this movie. The Lego movie is like a sequel to the new Disney movie "The Lion King". They just gave a new setting and a new story to it. This movie was like the Lego movie, but I think it was really good. The animation was really good and the characters were awesome. This movie was really good. The thing that I like about the Lego movie is that it was so fun and so much better then the new Disney movie "The Lion King". "The Lego Movie" is really good, I love it. "The Lego Movie" is very, very good. I think that this movie is great and very, very, very good. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes good, fun, and really, really good animation movies.

I had the privilege of seeing this film at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. It was a truly wonderful, heartfelt, and hilarious film. If you like animal films, you will enjoy this one. I loved it. It is one of the best films I have seen in my life. Every single actor and actress played their parts exceptionally well. The cast and crew was amazing. I am excited for the sequel to this film, and hope that it will be great.

I have not seen this movie for over 20 years. I was searching for it on YouTube and came across it and bought it on DVD. I have seen this movie over and over again and it still stays in my memory. It is so fun to watch the different plot lines and different reactions and different interactions of the main characters. Everyone who has seen this movie loves it. I highly recommend this movie to everyone. It is a very good movie, and it is also a very very good family movie. Everyone should watch this movie at least once. If you have not seen this movie, you have missed out on one of the best family movies ever.

This is my favorite movie of all time. It is filled with so many positive messages and actions. This movie is one that I have watched every time it comes on TV. I will not be able to get rid of this movie, I know it is a family favorite. If you don't want to get to tired of it, you can watch it again and again.

This is not your usual Disney movie. It is not a good movie for kids, and even I didn't like it very much. The acting is decent, but not great, and there are a lot of characters. Not to mention the few bad lines. The plot is not a bad one, but some of the events aren't explained very well. I have never seen this movie before, so I can't tell if this is a good or a bad movie, but I like this movie. The special effects are nice, and the story is well-written. I do not know why it did not win an Oscar, but it is very good.

This is a movie that was made by people who are very passionate about what they are doing. I don't see how anyone can not like this film. I am a huge Disney fan and am very pleased that Disney decided to release this film on DVD. They should have released this movie when it was first released. I never knew that Disney existed, but this film was something that I thought was so well done. The best part about this movie is that it is a Disney movie. Disney characters are in it, and in a way, this movie can be seen as Disney's take on what it was like when I was a child. I am a big fan of Disney. I think that they are very talented people and I think that they do a great job of marketing their films. I also like how Disney is able to use the movies as a way to give back to the community. Disney does a great job of putting out quality products. Disney films are always enjoyable and I think that this is one of the best films that Disney has ever put out. If you have never seen this film, I highly recommend it. I hope that this film will continue to be put out for as long as Disney wants to do so.

A dog's purpose is an uplifting and heartwarming film that will make you smile and laugh. The story is simple, but the story is so heartwarming that you will find yourself rooting for the dog as he goes on a journey to find his best friend. The cast is fantastic and you feel a connection with the dog and his family. There are some great funny moments, and the ending is also a bit of a surprise. The main character is a dog who is adopted by a woman who is constantly being attacked by a man. She thinks the man is her ex-husband and she has no one else to turn to. The man is always after her and is a bully. She is always the victim in this film. Eventually, she finds a dog who she really likes and he is also her best friend. The dog is trying to find his best friend, and the dog's journey will be filled with joy and happiness. It's a very sweet film that will make you feel good and smile. It's a good film to watch with the family.

To everyone who knows or cares about animals, this is a must see film. Even if you aren't an animal lover, I would highly recommend this film for all ages. The movie is truly a heartwarming story and can be enjoyed by both adults and children. I think that this movie is perfect for anyone with a sense of compassion. Everyone should see this movie at least once in their lifetime. Even if you are not an animal lover, this movie is for everyone. This movie is truly a diamond in the rough that will make you feel good about your life and gives you hope for a brighter future. This is a movie that anyone should see at least once in their lifetime. If you haven't seen this movie, then you should see it at least once.

To all the people who hate this movie, please do not watch this movie. This is one of my favorite movies, and I like it so much that I watch it every day. I think that you all have missed the point of the movie. It is about two puppies who are set free from the animals shelter. They become friends and they decide to help each other. And they make their own little family, with the help of the elderly woman who was once their foster mother. This movie is full of everything that you would want in a good family movie. I think that it would be great if you would watch it with a friend. The music is wonderful, and you can tell that the director used that in the movie to show you the essence of the movie. I think that you would love this movie as much as I do.

I really liked this movie, but I did think it was a bit weak. I think it's better than the first film, but it's still weaker. The story was good, and the acting was good. I thought that the dog was really funny. It was a good movie, but it is not as good as the first one. I think they could have done a better job. I think that it could have been better if they would have made it like the first film. The movie was still good, but I think they could have done better.

The movie is a special one, because it is about a family who was left by their dog,who now decides to go on a journey with his dog and finds out that he can do something more important than just the same old life.This is a great movie that show us what life can be like, and what life is all about.I am really looking forward to the sequel.

I'm not a big fan of this movie, but I think it is a good movie. It is well-made, entertaining, and has a message. The message, which I'm not going to give away, is about animals and what they can do with their lives. I agree with the negative reviews, and I don't think it is a bad movie. I just think that there is a lot of detail that needs to be considered, and the movie should have been longer. It's a good movie, but not a great one.

I saw this movie at the 2012 San Diego International Film Festival. I had never heard of the movie before, but I had heard that it was great. It was a very good movie, I enjoyed it very much. I think it is worth seeing, and you can find it on DVD or video. It is a family movie, and I think it is great for kids, and adults too. It is very funny and I think you will enjoy it. I recommend this movie to all moviegoers.

I didn't want to watch this movie because I had seen the trailer. But I decided to watch it anyway. And I loved it. I don't understand how anyone could say this is a bad movie. I can't believe the critics hated this movie. It was so well written, and well directed, and really very well acted. And I really can't understand how they can give this a bad review. It was really well written, and the characters were very likable. I am surprised the other people gave this a bad review, because this is one of my favorites.

I liked this film so much, I watched it over and over again. It is a great movie for kids and adults, and even children who don't like this kind of movies might enjoy it. I really recommend it to people.

I know I am just one of the people who didn't like the movie because of all the little things that bothered me. I actually don't care for a lot of things in the movie except for the dog, but other than that I loved it. I don't think I've ever seen a movie with the amount of humor in it that has made me laugh so hard. It is a very family friendly movie, I don't think kids will be bored, and I think adults will really enjoy it. I thought the acting was very good, the story was very good, and I think it was very good that it didn't get too much hate. I think a lot of people are criticizing it for being a children's movie, but I think it is still good for anyone who has a kid. I think this movie should be in everyone's DVD collection. The ending is a little different from the book, but it doesn't take away from the movie. I think the acting was great, the story was very good, and I thought the ending was a little different from the book, but it doesn't take away from the movie. I think people are saying that this movie is too violent, but I think it was a very good way to show violence in a movie, and it wasn't necessary. I think the movie is very realistic, and it also shows how you can't always get what you want. I think it was a very good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I was able to watch the movie before and after the animated version and even after the animated version. I am a fan of the animated version and the movie itself was very good, even if it was hard to read at times. My kids, ages 6-13, really enjoyed the movie and even the dialogue, and it was a treat to watch. I was impressed by the characters and how they portrayed their personalities. I also felt that the children were not spoiled by their parents who did not let them watch this movie when it came out. They didn't seem like spoiled children, and they are very intelligent. The writing was great, the acting was very good, and I loved the setting. The movie is full of words and situations that children will understand. The songs are wonderful, and the voice talent was excellent. I am glad to have seen this movie and hope the next animated version comes out soon. It's not as exciting and exciting as the animated version, but it is a wonderful movie and a great family movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone. If you liked the animated version, you will love this movie. I would recommend the movie to anyone who likes an entertaining movie.

I watched this movie in my middle school class, which is the same class as the one in which I watched the first movie. I remember that I was laughing so hard at this movie. I also remember how I felt about the characters, especially Paul. I thought that he was the best. I thought that his character was so well developed and I was not able to feel any resentment or hatred for him. I thought that he was such a good person. He was a great character. The only thing that I did not like was the dog. He was the worst dog ever. I would have never allowed this movie to be made, but I didn't have anything else to do so I watched it. I liked it. I enjoyed it. I liked it a lot. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good movie. I would say that this movie was good.

I saw this movie yesterday. I had heard a lot about this movie and I am glad I didn't listen to the critics and went to the movie. I am very pleased that I did. I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a family movie. The movie is a little bit different from other family movies. I think that the movie is a good one and I think it will be one of the best movies this year. My rating is 7 out of 10. This movie is worth the money to see. I give it 7 out of 10.

I am not going to lie to you, this movie was not my favorite. I did not love it, nor did I love it, but it was entertaining enough. There were some parts that I liked and others that I did not. The acting was okay, the special effects were okay, but the story was weak and not very interesting. The movie did have a few funny parts, but that is it. It was not a movie that I would recommend, but it was entertaining enough. I give it a B+.

I am a huge fan of Disney films and I thought this was a good movie. I am not a big fan of the entire franchise but this one was good. It had a good storyline and was very entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Disney films. I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a good story line, but other than that it was a good movie.

I remember seeing this film at the cinema as a child and being thrilled by it. I remember loving the story and the characters. I also remember being very disappointed by the ending, and thinking that there should have been more to it. I'm not sure if the film was ever re-released, or if they just put it out on DVD so that people who haven't seen it will be able to see it. I have recently seen it again on DVD. It's still a wonderful movie, but the ending is a little hard to take. It's more of a fantasy film, but still, a very good fantasy film. I love the film, but I do think that the ending is a little too cliche. I think that it could have been more. I'm not sure if the director is really trying to make a serious film, or if it's just that he's doing what he does best. I guess that he really has to be able to convince people to go see the film. It's really hard to do that. I think that the film is good, but it's hard to watch it when it's not enjoyable. If you want a good fantasy film, and you've never seen it, see it. If you want a film that's easy to watch, and you like fantasy films, then go see it. If you don't like fantasy films, and you don't like fantasy films, don't see it. I think that it's a very good film, but it's not really that good.

A Dog's Purpose is one of those films that may have been a good movie in the 80's, but it has been lost in the current generation. If you are looking for a family film, this is the one for you. A dog, the two young children, and the dad are all gathered together for a weekend at the beach, and of course the dog is the main focus of the film. The film is about a family, which is split up when the father leaves the family, and the two kids are left alone, with the dog. The film is very light hearted and funny, and has a very good message. It is not a movie that is going to be watched by everyone, but it is worth watching. My rating for the film is a 7/10.
