Kindness Matters

Never throw away a dog.

This low budget movie is about a dog and two homes. In the first, a single father struggling to take care of his semi-special needs kid, and in the second a middle aged loner (Bill Wetheril) with no friends. All this changes when the loner takes in and looks after a discarded puppy.

Hmm that's not entirely true, the single father does solve his own situation separately but hey - why not put them in the same movie and plot device them together? Also, the audience gets to hear what the dog is thinking. Yep, it's that kind of movie.

It would help if the dog was smarter than the average dog.
But nope, it's just a dog.

While the plot and acting could be better (that's an understatement), I do have to note how nice the people are in this movie. Except one person who wins the "worst person" award, and that's amazing to achieve in a non violent drama. Still, not really worth going out of your way to see and one I'm not going to watch again - I rate it 1.5 cacti out of 5.
