Based on the book of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dogs Way Home is the story of a dog who is separated from her owner and takes off on a massive journey across 400 miles to get back to the place she calls home. Along the way, the cute canine makes a bunch of new friends, bringing with her a little joy to each of their lives.
The family adventure film is directed by Charles Martin and stars Ashley Judd, Edward James Olmos, Wes Studi, Alexandria Shipp, Barry Watson and Chris Bauer, with Bryce Dallas Howard performing the voice of dog Bella.
A Dogs Way Home is a heart warmer with the familiar story able to pull on even the strongest of heartstrings. An entertaining adventure and funny at times, but nothing too special.
