  • Don't Support Animal Cruelty!

    "'A Dog's Purpose' Faces Backlash after 'Disturbing' Video Surfaces," CNN, January 19, 2017. There's a reason why this film has such negative critic reviews: because of the leaked set footage of animal abuse.
  • Be here now...except

    By ceegail
    Entier movie was about longing to return to past, wonder about popping back into existence, constant evaluation of present - time. Most of the movie is about regret. Then concuding sentence is that dogs's purpose (no spoiler here) is to live in the joy of the present. This is heinous case of anthromorphism. We have six dogs who do live in the present and force us to do the same.

  • Good movie

    By double digit
    I didn’t intend on this movie but I did. It is actually good. It goes on throughout a dogs life living through other dogs. The dog tells the story. I will say that I almost cried at the end of the movie cause of how it played out. I won’t say how it ended. But it is a good movie. Check it out.
  • I'm a HUGE dog lover, but...

    By sofiamolleda
    I adore any size, color, fur of dogs there is, but this simply isn't a good movie! The only reason you want to keep seeing the movie for is the dogs and how adorable they look, but when that's the only reason why then the filmmakers are in trouble.
