Plays like warm-fuzzy dog movies with glimpses of fantasy, A Dog’s Purpose often felt awkward, never hit any marks of the genre’s best. Rating: ★★★


A Dog’s Purpose is a feel good movie that reminds me of how dogs could really be a fine companion. That a dog would cherish and adore you, and make you his whole world. It’s warm and lighthearted enough to put a smile on my face, even if it didn’t last long enough and the aftertaste faded a tad too quickly. Just watch it for the dogs, because they’re all such adorable ball of fluffs. Especially Tino. Because CORGI. Rating: ★★★


Hadirkan tawa dan berikan rasa hangat, A Dog’s Purpose akan membuat senyummu mengembang saat melangkahkan kaki ke luar bioskop. Menarik. Rating: ★★★1/2
