Finally has a premiere date & first trailer.
Just re-read this over the weekend, such a great book. Hit a lot harder since our boy Luke passed last year. Frown

My assumption is that they shoot for a PG rating, PG13 at most. So some of the language & a couple other scenes will be cut way back/toned down.

Planning on seeing this on in the theater for sure.

It better have the line, "give me my thumbs, you fucking monkeys!" or I will be very disappointed.

Lots of good 'Zo lines, really hope they get it right.

I think back to the flop, IMO, that was Ender's Game, and hope against that.

Looks like it may be better than A Dog's Purpose, though that'd be tough to do. The Golden Retriever is a good start.

I read the book a few years back and wasn't overly impressed with it, I'm hoping the film will be better.

I also don't much care for Milo whateverhislastnameis. Good actor, but something about him rubs me the wrong way.

Perhaps it was the way he dissed Rory. Yeah, I watched The Gilmour Girls and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Big Grin

Loved the book.
Surprised it took so long to get a movie made.
I look forward to it.

Can't wait, I loved the book.

I did not recognize the voice of Enzo, then the end credits said Kevin Costner. Sounds like he's been smoking a lot of cigarettes since the last time I saw or heard him in a movie.

Early non-critic reviews are pretty positive.

Last I checked it had something like a 47% on RT for critic reviews.

Guy I know in AZ saw it over the weekend and said it was great. The few changes needed to make it PG didn't diminish the story.

Saw it Saturday night, while they had to differ a little from the book, to make it PG, I think it was a solid representation of the book.

Other than they could have gotten Don Kitch to play himself Smile I liked it quite a bit.

Mrs Highlander and I saw it last week and thought it was great. We are both big fans of the book and really developed a greater appreciation as we lived with our aging dog. That opening scene just brought me back to those last days. Nothing like tearing up in the first 60 seconds.

Saw it yesterday with my wife. She took a fresh travel pack of Kleenex. I think she used all of them. It was really well made and a very good adaptation of the book. I highly recommend it.

Made me want a Ferrari... of course, waking up in the morning makes me want a Ferrari.





Do, Or do not. There is no try.
