While I don’t believe in reincarnation, I did enjoy this movie. If you need a good cry, this may do it for you.

This is a movie for true dog lover's. Not a dry eye through this film. Josh Gad is superb as the voice of Bailey, Ethan's dog, who lives through various incarnations. His purpose? To teach us to love. How can you not love that? The sequel, "A Dog's Journey," is even better, with a slightly different subject, but with the same stars: Josh Gad and Dennis Quaid. See both! If you don't love dogs or understand their purpose in our lives, maybe you should look at adopting one--a rescue dog!

This was an ok movie, not as great as I've heard. The dog narrating was kind of silly and the only part I really liked was the part with the Corgi. Dennis Quaid was ok and I liked the music but that was about it.

Not a bad "family" movie told from a canine's perspective. But if you really want to see a terrific Lasse Hallstrom movie then take in My Life as a Dog. His best movie by far. A classic on the Criterion Collection.

It is a very good movie about dogs and their view toward their life. The main dog character Bailey goes through a few "lives" and finally unites with the original owner. The movie is quite cheerful to me, not a tearjerker as some people said. I love the ending the the movie.
