Okay I watched this last weekend with my twelve year old. It's is a true story with Richard Gere and his dog as the main characters. If you watched Marley and Me and cried you will outright sob while watching this movie, if you don't watch this and cry, there might be something wrong with you. It is a heartwarming and great movie to watch, the fact that it really is a true story is an added bonus. Gotta watch it. It has gotten great reviews. We rented it at our local video store.
