Movie Info

Bailey (voiced again by Josh Gad) is living the good life on the Michigan farm of his "boy," Ethan (Dennis Quaid) and Ethan's wife Hannah (Marg Helgenberger). He even has a new playmate: Ethan and Hannah's baby granddaughter, CJ. The problem is that CJ's mom, Gloria (Betty Gilpin), decides to take CJ away. As Bailey's soul prepares to leave this life for a new one, he makes a promise to Ethan to find CJ and protect her at any cost. Thus begins Bailey's adventure through multiple lives filled with love, friendship and devotion as he, CJ (Kathryn Prescott), and CJ's best friend Trent (Henry Lau) experience joy and heartbreak, music and laughter, and few really good belly rubs.

What if dogs really aren't this annoying when we get to hear inside their head? What if they're actually very smart or lovely?

If there are to be more sequels, I'm hoping that future Baileys cut the chat and hark back to a time when heroism trumped cuteness and movie dogs left the punchlines to the human members of the cast.

This is the type of movie where all characters are either "good" or "bad," nothing in between, and the only emotions are "happy" and "sad." It's as if it was written from the emotional mindset of a dog.

It's about halfway through the film when one realizes how much deeper Mancuso and team are going with this dog's journey... It's about how dogs can fill the hole in your heart that a person might leave.

Is A Dog's Journey one of the sweetest canine films out there, or one of the meanest?

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

I enjoyed the film, as many will, in a split-brain way that goes to the essence of fantasy -- half-believing what I wanted to be true, embracing the emotional manipulation whenever possible.
