MY DOG SKIP

 

 

Most boy and dog films seem to work, which makes for ideal kid entertainment, and there's also something deep and valuable for the adults.

It brings back our childhood, and shows what we leave behind and what's taken from us. Nothing stays the same or goes on forever.

Despite some moments of a little corny melodrama, My Dog Skip is a touching film, and you can't help liking it.

With subtle scenes of segregation and two-dimensional villains, My Dog Skip attempts to wax nostalgic for the early years of WWII America and the childhood joys of having a dog. There is a fine cast, and clever camera work makes it sentimental, nostalgic, and like ALL dog films, manipulative!

The film is slow moving and heavy handed.

This animal story, My Dog Skip, is solid family entertainment.

Sings:
I never cared much for moonlit skies.
I never wink back at fireflies.
But now that the stars are in your eyes,
I'm beginning to see the light.

The bond between an eight-year-old boy and puppy is at the heart of this tale.
