What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Michael O'Sullivan Dog movie with a harmless philosophical bite.
Jim Judy While A Dog’s Purpose might give dog owners some relief that their beloved pooches get to live on as other dogs in other’s lives, the body count in the film was a bit too much for me.
Tomatometer A Dog’s Purpose offers an awkward blend of sugary sentiment and canine suffering that tugs at animal-loving audiences’ heartstrings with shameless abandon.

Staff evaluation Tearjerker is sweet, poignant, and occasionally violent.
