(2018) (Nina Dobrev, Vanessa Hudgens) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: The lives of various residents of Los Angeles intersect thanks to the dogs in their lives.
- It's the dog days of summer in Los Angeles and morning TV talk show host Elizabeth (NINA DOBREV) is taking her dog to pet therapist Danielle (TIG NOTARO), supposedly for the pooch's help, but it's really for her what with having discovered her boyfriend was cheating on her. In her mind, things go from bad to worse when she then learns that former NFL player Jimmy Johnston (TONE BELL) has been hired as her first-ever co-host, a troubling development considering how they earlier clashed during a live, on-air interview.
Coffee shop barista Tara (VANESSA HUDGENS) doesn't own a dog, but finds a stray and ends up taking it to veterinarian Dr. Mike (MICHAEL CASSIDY). He's so handsome that women flock to his clinic just to see him, all of which means that Garrett (JON BASS), who runs a dog rescue shelter and secretly has a crush on Tara, realizes he probably now has no chance with her.
Married couple Ruth (JESSICA ST. CLAIR) and Greg (THOMAS LENNON) are expecting twins and thus ask Ruth's not always reliable brother, Dax (ADAM PALLY), to dog sit for them, something that Elizabeth's friend, Daisy (LAUREN LAPKUS), does for a living. Retired English professor Walter (RON CEPHAS JONES) is devastated by his beloved dog having run away, leaving him all alone since his wife passed away a few years ago. Accordingly, and despite a bit of an early antagonistic relationship, he accepts the help of 16-year-old pizza delivery boy Tyler (FINN WOLFHARD) to help find his pet.
Little do they know that she's been found by Amelia (ELIZABETH PHOENIX CARO), a little girl who's just been adopted by Grace (EVA LONGORIA) and Kurt (ROB CORDDRY) and has finally come out of her withdrawn shell upon the dog coming into her life. As they and the others go about their lives, their dogs end up causing some of their paths to intersect.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they love dogs they probably will (although this is NOT a talking dog movie and dogs are not the main characters).
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For rude and suggestive content, and for language.
