My oldest decided that she was going to do the review for this movie. Here are her thoughts:
Ever since I’ve watched “A Dog’s Purpose”, it quickly became my favorite movie. I loved how you could hear the thoughts of the dog throughout the entire movie and the fact that it was the mind of the same dog throughout the whole movie was awesome. I got quite emotional during the parts near the end of each of his/her lives. I knew he was going to come back, but just the idea of a dog going out that was sad. Overall, this is definitely a great movie. I can almost guarantee that I will be watching this movie again sometime in the near future.
