Bronwyn McKay quote iconIt's not perfect, but it's not bad either and will be a great trip to the cinema for the entire family – or a great family movie night at home.

Jim Judy quote iconSo, we’re left with something of a mixed bag where what works (the emotional moments and, yes, the cute pup) ends up being negated by what doesn’t, or at least operates below acceptable levels.

Tomatometer quote iconA Dog’s Way Home may not quite be a family-friendly animal drama fan’s best friend, but this canine adventure is no less heartwarming for its familiarity.
