If you have ever had a pet dog, ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ is a film you will want to see
A dog can be more than just a simple pet. They can fill a void in your life, and change it in all kinds of ways. To me they are more than a pet, they quickly become a member of the family. But what if when they die, they get reborn and live a new life with new people? This is a theory that A Dog’s Purpose throws at its audience. I was able to see it last week and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for A Dog’s Purpose here:
A devoted dog (Josh Gad) discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan (Bryce Gheisar). As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.
A Do’s Purpose is a really good movie. It is full of heart warming moments, and has plenty of scenes that will have you grabbing for a tissue. Josh Gad is amazing as the voice of the dog. He had me laughing a lot, and once or twice I had to dry my eyes. As one life ends and another begins the world changes, and the people this dog interacts with have their own reasons for needing him.

A Dog’s Purpose gets 9/10. The film had me laughing more than once, and the dramatic scenes were strong throughout. This is one of those rare films that is worth seeing more than once. Definitely one of the more moving films I have seen in a long time.
