This movie is one of the best things that I have ever seen. The characters are funny, smart, and very real. It shows the true meaning of friendship. My favorite character is Taylor Lautner as the dog Jake. The movie also makes fun of the idiotic, and unoriginal jokes. Also the author portrayed friendship in an intelligent and funny way, that is too rare nowadays. The story is very exciting and exciting, with the most realistic action scenes ever. The acting is fantastic as well. The film is the best comedy ever created, and I think I am going to see it again and again.

I really liked this movie. I watched it with my daughter last night and we both really enjoyed it. It was very fun. It is very entertaining to watch and you can really see that dogs and people really do have some sort of sense of humor. It is a wonderful and easy story to watch. It was very cute and sweet and funny. The dog's goal was to rescue his master from a evil witch that was torturing him. He was just doing his job and that is what a dog does. I think that it was a great movie and it really kept my attention the entire time. It is very entertaining and really funny and makes you think a lot about things and the world around you. I really recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a very cute movie and have a good time. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to buy the DVD of this movie when it comes out. I think that it is a great movie for children and families and it is perfect for parents to watch it together with their children. I also think that this is a great movie for dogs and the whole family. I really really loved it and I think that it is one of the better movies of the year. I really recommend this movie and I hope that you will too.

I have seen this film several times and I love it every time I watch it. I hope to see it on the big screen when it is released in theatres. It is a great family film that's about four years old. It stars Colin Firth, Susan Sarandon, the late Jude Law, and Paul Giamatti. This film is based on a novel by Roy Dotrice. I've heard a lot about it and read many reviews and it has a lot of critics that give this movie a poor rating. I myself am a big fan of Robin Williams and I love him in all of his movies. It is a funny movie that's for everyone. I think I'll give it 8/10.

I recently saw this movie in the theater.I think this movie is great. I was just thinking about the one line of dialogue, "Wow, wow, wow", as when he said this sentence, I was thinking this was going to be the funniest movie ever, since it was that funny. Everyone in the theater seemed to think that the lines in the movie were great, and I was very impressed by this. This movie will always be my favorite. It is a true story about a dog, and the man who lived through it, and it is true story is about the best dog rescue organization ever, the Pitbull Rescue. I hope everyone loves this movie as much as I did. Go see this movie! It's the best movie ever.

I'm a little late to the party with this one, but I have watched every episode of the show - and yes, it's just as I remembered it. Now, a short summary of the plot. It's about a group of English soldiers who travel into the colonies in the American colonies, because they heard of the harsh conditions the colonists lived in. They end up meeting a dog and their interest turns into how they can get the dog to be adopted and why it wants to live on the colony. I loved the story, and there are a few "kookier" moments. I loved the animal stars. They were great! All in all, this is a great family movie!

This is a great family movie, a welcome change from the usual overrated movies that come out every year. The premise is brilliant, and you really feel as if you are a part of the story. I can see why it was voted as one of the best movies of the year. You'll love it! I'll keep it simple and say that this movie is not for children, not even for the most mature. I don't think I could have put it better myself.

This movie was a good movie. Although it is a good movie, I would rate it at least a 7.5.

A Dog's Purpose, with a little bit of exception. The story, in the end, has a lot of flaws. The script is not very much as good as the director. The story does not work well in the beginning. You have to have some patience to enjoy this film. The acting is good and the animation is also good. There is nothing in the film that does not impress. A good film for a rainy day.

This movie is not like any other movie I have seen before. I have always had a soft spot for Kline. However, his role here was so strange and weird that I did not see how this could end up being a hit. But it did. The opening scene was very cliche. I am not a fan of movies with two men in a room. The movie is very much like Waiting For Godot. The suspenseful moments in Waiting for Godot were spot on, and they were played with the best actors that I have ever seen. I did not know how to react in this movie. I really wanted to like this movie and I did. It is something you can watch with your family, because you can tell that they are having a good time. There is nothing wrong with having a good time, and this movie does have a good time. It is a good family movie. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this movie to all my friends, and I think that everyone in my group enjoyed it as much as I did.

Everyone has a dog and this movie would make an awesome gift for all dog lovers. I have one and I liked it very much. The dogs are so wonderful. The little mite thingie will be back. I wish I could have seen this film back in the 1980s. I wish my dog would have seen this film, I would have watched it a lot more then I did. It's a great story of an orphan boy and his dog. It's not a typical dog movie and it's not a typical boy movie. It's just about the boy's journey to find his own identity and find his place in the world. He ends up meeting his dog in the end, what a sweet ending. It's an awesome film and I don't think I would change anything. This is just one of those movies you have to see.

This film is definitely not the smartest, the most poetic, or even the most emotionally moving. That's probably because it was made for a PG-13 rating and that, in itself, speaks volumes. It is, however, the film that speaks most of the most for adults. No one is a stranger to the dangers of a dog's life. You can learn about them in the comfort of your home. In the same way, you can learn about the problems and difficulties that dog owners have. (There are plenty of examples in this movie) I think it is a wonderful movie. It takes a hard look at what it means to have a dog and how hard it is to live with a dog. The characters are well-played and interesting. The direction was spot on. (For anyone who has owned a dog before, it was nothing short of amazing.) It was a good movie, all right.

I really liked this movie because I like "kids" movies, like this one. The movie is full of fun and imagination. It's not just a "kid movie". The story is not bad, it's actually very good. It's not like you just watched this movie and said: "that's just kids and aliens flying around". The movie is like you don't see aliens, but a simple boy and his dog. The movies make you feel like you are there, with the characters and a great imagination. It's really cool. In the movie the boy is young and doesn't know anything about science or government or laws. And he has a dog with him. He is lonely and thinks about doing stuff that he didn't know before. But there's no doubt about that: it's a nice film.

Of course there's some historical flaws (when I think of all the use of "Colombia" and "Haiti" the biggest), but the movie was, overall, rather fun. The animation is very good, the story is very interesting and the acting is OK. In a world where villains have to have hundreds of hairless children to sell, even if they look alike, I think the movie was still done pretty well. The plot is quite simple, but it didn't matter. It's a classic children's movie, the kid will enjoy it. My brother and I both loved it. If you're a fan of Japanese animation or the modern animated movies, then I strongly recommend this movie.

PICTURE This movie is basically a movie, except the actors do not have to walk around the movie and it looks like a real movie. It's the way of the past, just like "Titanic". If you're in a mood to relax, this is the movie for you. If you're in a mood for a different kind of movie, it's good for you. No need to worry about disturbing the children and you'll enjoy the movie. The story is simple, and for the most part, it's quite straightforward. The characters are clear. The story isn't about a quest or a plot. It's about showing the true view of humanity, as shown by a little dog who is so much more than a pet. This movie is about a guy who is ashamed of his heritage, and so he makes a wish, that he can change the way people see him. For the most part, I think this movie is really a good movie for all, because it's a movie that everyone will understand and enjoy. The creators of this movie had the best intentions. The movie is a movie that I could enjoy, and it's a movie that will keep you entertained. If you don't like movies, don't watch them. If you don't like the way that the human society is like, don't watch the movies. This is not a bad movie for everybody. If you like movies, watch the ones like "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".

Husband and wife duo Ted and Julie took a trip to Disney World in Orlando for the first time, to enjoy the rides and the magic. While they were there, they took a photo and told the woman who took it that their photo was taken during a Star Wars Celebration and that he or she should contact her or him directly. Thereafter, a man calling himself Luke Skywalker was captured by Luke and his friends and taken to Tatooine to learn to be a pilot in the Rebel Alliance. The documentary features Ted and Julie reminiscing about their trip, and the man who took the picture of them. Both of the couple's younger children, Jill and Nick, are interviewed about the trip and their experiences on the trip. This is a good documentary for family viewing and has a strong message.

I had a good laugh watching this movie. I laughed so hard I could see the screen shake. Well, I was joking. I watched this with my kids in the car. It was a great movie. The effects were great. It had a great message and it was a cute movie. My kids love it and the movie. I give it a 7 out of 10.

To me this was the movie that brought Robin Williams back to the big screen. I loved him as the nervous, old man. I loved how he and Lynn Redgrave were able to bond over their separation. I also loved the funny effects and the feel of the movie was also very warm and cozy. I have watched this movie at least 4 times since I first saw it. I watched it again with my 7 yr old and she enjoyed it even more. The beginning is a little confusing, but once it gets going, it's very funny. The plot is about a dog that goes on a vacation with a family to an old country house. Robin Williams is the host, his family are very strict and strict-but the family loves the dog. They then move into a different house and the two dogs get along with their new owners. When they return from vacation, the owner and the two dogs then get into trouble and the parents send them to a dog behavior instructor. I think the movie is very much realistic and just shows us that you have to get along with your family. I also like the fact that it's a movie that you can watch with the whole family and not have to change the channel every five minutes. It makes a good movie to watch with the family. My rating for this movie is an 8/10.

HORROR PUMP! The classic musical is coming back to life with a modern update and they even cast a new cast (which I wasn't expecting) to reprise their roles. They even show off a few new songs (mainly acoustic ones) that had great music and a great combination of emotions and songs to get all the kids involved in the film. The whole thing was so great and made me want to be a part of that film. I was amazed at how much I was talking and smiling with my family when the song "All These Things" played. The movie had a great story with great messages of hope, friendship, and good luck. I felt so good watching this movie and the feeling lasted through out the entire movie. My only critique of the film would be the level of violence and gore, which wasn't as graphic as I would have liked it to be but I still loved the entire film. It was also funny, silly, and pretty touching. A great film that will make everyone feel good. I highly recommend this movie for anyone. This is a must see.

I like this movie quite a bit. It is very colorful and fun. It's a kids movie that is geared toward them, but has enough adult dialogue to make adults laugh, too. This movie has a lot of laughs. It has plenty of explosions, and I believe it is very accurate in the destruction of dinosaurs. I also like the way they took out the dinosaurs as a metaphor for the struggle for self-esteem among people who have lost it to the 'adults'. I think this is the type of movie that would appeal to parents. I also liked the references to the original movie. In the original, the dinosaurs were not as bad as they were, and it didn't show that there were no problems with the adults. I also think the writer added a lot of humor to the movie, which is something that I like, as well. The last scene where Triceratops are captured was a little surprising, because it was a really good reference to the first movie. I also like the message that the kids were sending about how 'kids should respect adults'. I think that is a great message for a movie. I recommend it for kids to watch as it has a lot of humor for them. I also think that it is a great movie for adults to watch. 8/10

Based on the young adult book series, The Dog's Purpose is a brilliant movie that is all about family, children and the idea of trust. Written by Jonathan Larson, the screenplay is beautifully written and the movie is full of emotions and laugh out loud moments. The story is funny, poignant and one that is easy to get emotional about. I absolutely love this movie, it's my favorite!

One of the best movies I've seen in ages. It's very sad that there isn't more people like this. What would you do if your friends are all in jail? Would you do anything to get them out? Would you give your life over for them? That's what this movie is about. You do have to remember, that you're not really watching a movie, you're watching your friends. The ending was great, especially for kids. The trailer is for a reason, because that's the point of the movie.

I was a bit disappointed when I first saw this movie. It seemed to be a bit too silly for me. I thought the dog was too cute and the fact that he was a dog made it seem a little more realistic. It's not a movie for children, but I think that if you liked the movie the first time, you may like it the second time. It's a cute movie that can be enjoyed by children and adults. The story is simple and there are plenty of funny moments, but I did find it a little too silly for my taste.

It was a good movie, but I can't help but think that it could have been better. I enjoyed the film, but I could have done without the extra scenes. I found myself bored during the entire movie. The film was almost 3 hours long, and it was not that long. I would have liked to see more of the boy, but other than that, it was a good movie. I would give it a 7, but I gave it a 6 because I found the extra scenes to be annoying.

I am not a fan of the Disney Channel but this film was a pleasant surprise. I have always liked Peter Jackson's work on films like Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit but this film really does stand out. I really enjoyed the characters and the story and I really liked the story of how the film would progress and how the dog would be a big part of the story. I think that this film is a great family film and I would recommend it to anyone who is into movies that are not always for kids.

I really enjoyed this movie, it had a nice story, good acting, and a nice plot. The only thing I didn't like was the dog's reaction to the movie. I think the dog should have been more serious and his reactions would have been more believable. I don't think he should have been so much of a jokester. I also thought that the acting wasn't the best, but the actors did a good job with what they had to work with. I really enjoyed this movie and I think it's a good family movie.

I went into this movie with a pretty low expectation, but it turned out to be one of my favorites. It has a great story and the acting is really good. It's not too serious but it's not a comedy either. It's a family movie and the kids really enjoyed it. I thought the actors did a great job with the material they were given and it was very well done. This movie is one of the few movies I really enjoyed and I would recommend it to anyone.

I had no idea what to expect from this movie when I went to see it, but it turned out to be a really good one. The movie was funny, the actors were great, and the story was really good. The movie had a great message and it was a great family movie. The only thing that I didn't like was that the movie was a bit too long. I didn't like the movie because I was bored and I didn't like the movie because I didn't like it. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

I found the movie to be enjoyable. The only reason I gave it a seven instead of a six was that I found the dog's lack of motivation to be a little annoying. I was hoping for a little more to go along with the dog's role as a hero. The dog's character was the most interesting part of the movie. The story is very well written. The acting is solid. The scenery is very well done. I think the director could have used a little more editing. The ending was a little abrupt. I found the plot to be a little confusing. Overall, the movie is worth watching.

I watched this movie at a sneak preview and was not disappointed. Though not a perfect movie, it is still a great movie and I'm glad I watched it. The reason why I'm not a dog lover is that I would like to say what kind of dog or dog lover I am, but I would hate to give that away. I've always loved dogs and I think they are amazing, intelligent and intelligent animals. I am very sensitive to negative things about any kind of animal. I am very thankful that I can appreciate what animals do for me. This movie is about two dog lovers in South America that get lost, and need to travel the world, and how they find each other. They meet up in Canada, and they form a bond. This bond is very important to them, and it gives them the strength to travel to Japan, France and even New Zealand. I found the movie very heartwarming. It is about giving the most you give and more. When the movie ended, I was like this was a good movie, I enjoyed it a lot. This movie is definitely a keeper and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to watch a movie about animals.

I was really disappointed when I read the reviews. Firstly, I agree with the critics that the children were the one's who didn't understand the story. However, there were a few scenes that really made me angry, and those scenes were used because they were cut off in the other "book". The actions were sadistic and it was a shame. I really like the premise of this film and think it is a wonderful achievement. The most important thing is the characters were developed and well thought through. Now I've seen all these reviews. Not everyone will like this film. I've seen some of the worst reviews, some people who have been looking forward to this film were completely disappointed. I can see why. The film isn't very realistic, but that's what makes it so great. I'm not going to explain what happened at the end, but I'll tell you what I liked and I know it won't disappoint anyone who has seen it. The children are really sweet and they're fun to watch. The acting was wonderful and the film moves at a nice pace. I really thought about leaving after the first 30 minutes because I thought the film would drag on. However, I gave it a shot and was very happy with it. I had a smile on my face for the entire film and that's what counts in my book. I'm definitely going to buy the DVD and I hope the people who wrote bad reviews see this. I think it's a great film, a good family film, and the adults will appreciate it too. I really recommend it. And I loved the costumes. It really made me feel like I was there and when I left the cinema I was smiling.

I love Disney movies. So when I was in the mood to watch some new movies, this is the one. I thought it was a great movie. This one was really a Disney movie. The story line was good. The animals were funny and also interesting. The writing was great. Some of the story lines were very good and some were very bad. I thought the best part of the movie was that it was basically a movie that was inspired by other movies. I know this was a Disney movie but some of the animals that were in the movie were kind of like people. They had very kind hearted and they were very nice to the human characters. I thought that was a very good part of the movie and that was a good part. I thought it was very good that they added a few humans that were kind and decent to the animal's. The last part of the movie was very good. I liked the end. It was also a good movie that was very good. There were some parts that were kind of funny but there were also some parts that were very sad. I think that was a good ending and I liked it very much. Overall I think this is a great movie. I think that if you are in the mood to watch a Disney movie you should watch this movie.

I just watched this movie and was very impressed. The cast is very good, the storyline is very good, and the characters are very likable. The only thing that I could think of as a flaw is that it is a bit slow, but it is very well acted. The movie is very entertaining, and I would recommend it to anyone.

The movie is good, but I didn't really like the story. It is a bit hard to follow at times, but it is still a good movie.

The opening scenes of this movie are really funny, with the dog sitting on a train and barking and the train going by. I was laughing my head off! This movie is not as good as the first one, but still a good family movie. The plot is a little predictable but it does have a nice twist. The acting is pretty good, with the characters being pretty realistic and not over the top. The plot was also good and the characters are well developed. The movie is also very funny at times. There are also a few good scenes of violence and violence against animals. The acting and the plot were good enough to make this movie a good family movie. It is not as good as the first one, but still a good family movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has a dog and wants a good family movie.
