Eventually, the pup even helps the girl choose a suitable life partner. Silly subplots and melodramatic flourishes let the film down. The puppies are adorable throughout, though.

A DOG’S JOURNEY

  • Direction: Gail Mancuso
  • Actors: Kathryn Prescott, Josh Gad (voice)
  • Rating: 2 / 5

Not to be confused with A Dog’s Way Home, which was released here earlier this month, this similar-sounding emotionally manipulative canine-centered adventure is actually a sequel to the 2017 tearjerker, A Dog’s Purpose. Interestingly, all three films are derived from novels by W Bruce Cameron.

Expanding upon the original’s theme of canine reincarnation, incoming director Gail Mancuso ensures that the ‘boss dog’ protagonist, a golden retriever named Bailey, fulfils his promise to protect his owner’s granddaughter throughout her life.
