Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A manipulative script about dog reincarnation that whacks your emotions like a pinata - that's forgivable. But no mercy for a film charged with canine abuse behind the scenes. It shouldn't happen to a dog.
Rotten: All the emotional resonance of a dog-themed novelty coffee-table book.
Rotten: A peculiar kibble of vignettes, wrapping reincarnation and life lessons together in a sappy Hallmark Channel-style doggy sweater.
Rotten: It's hard to work how who this film is pitched at given the very simple narrative.
