Closely adapted from the acclaimed novella by Harlan Ellison, this postapocalyptic black comedy has emerged as a cult favorite since its release in 1975, when Don Johnson was a relative unknown and still years away from TV stardom on Miami Vice. Here Johnson plays a young, libidinous loner named Vic who roams the postnuclear wasteland with his loyal dog, Blood, a remarkable hound with keen intelligence and the ability to telepathically communicate with his less-intelligent master. It's survival of the fittest, so food and sex are Vic's highest priorities, and he gets plenty of both when recruited into a mysterious underground society in desperate need of young fertile males. While Blood must fend for himself on the unfriendly surface, Vic realizes that he's an exploited prisoner and must escape to return to the canine friend he left behind. Thanks in large part to the sly wit of Blood (whose sarcastic voice is splendidly provided by Tim McIntire), this clever and disturbing film readily earns its lasting reputation as a low-budget classic, and features a funny yet chilling supporting role for Jason Robards Jr. --Jeff Shannon
- A clear view of the female species
This movie makes one point and makes it well. Time and time again women try to change men and seperate them from what they love. Fortunately, Don got his hormones back under control a went for true love.
Wise man once said: "If your looking for sex, head for the bar, if it is true love you desire, get a dog"....more info
- A really twisted tale
I saw this in high school over 30 years ago. It was fantastic then, and it is fantastic now. The boy learns how not to think with his biological urges as he finds out who his true friend is. Along the way we are shown how odd life can truly by in this surealistic reflection of ourselves by the great Harlan Ellison. It is still one of the best sci fi films ever. Just don't show it to your girl friends......more info
- EXCELLENT MID-NIGHT MOVIE FARE
ALTHOUGH DECIDEDLY LOW BUDGET, THE MOVIE IS A CLASSIC. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE DOG AND HIS BOY IS HUMOROUS AND ENGAGING. I'VE YET TO MEET A WOMAN WHO LIKES THE END OF THIS MOVIE....more info
- cult classic? why not wider interest...
I've loved this film from my first watching many moons of Jupiter ago...watching it again has me appreciating it even more, the true hallmark of a classic film! [one of my] fav quotes of any film ever just has to be: "you're starting to sound like a g-dd-mn poodle!" and the entire dialog subsequent in that same scene bears comparison to the finest Woody Allen...see it and weep! w/laughter...Alex 'just another bleary-eyed vidwatcher'...more info
- hilarious, low budget tongue and cheek post WWIII
This is a wonderful gem of a film, about the wreckage that survives in the wake of the nuclear holocaust. The young Don Johnson is the boy, and he demonstrates greater talent as an actor than any of his subsequent TV junk. He is the dog's sidekick, which is trying to educate him about American presidents (!), as they try to get along in the desolate landscape and chaos. While they do find a pocket of civilization, which the boy must explore, its horrors help them to get their priorities straight in the end.
What is so funny about this all is that it parodies the usual fuzzy companion films and just about everything else about hollywood givens and platitudes, from love to ethics. I don't want to reveal the plot here, but it is wonderfully summed up when the dog thanks the boy in the end, "I really appreciated that. Sure you don't want some?"
Warmly recommended for the sci fi buff with a sense of humor....more info
- Wow, someone had a lot of fun making this.
Mid-70s post-nuclear apocalypse movies are not a genre I generally enjoy. "A Boy and His Dog" (one of the first of the type) is the exception that proves the rule.
The shattered world above is not the interesting part of this film, and it moves slowly for the first hour while we're in it. What keeps us watching is the great dialogue and interaction between Vic (Doh Johnson) and his dog, Blood. Vic and Blood can talk to each other, and the dog is rather smarter than Vic. Once we go "downbelow," into the survivalist enclave called "Topeka."
One reason I didn't give this film 5 stars was the slowness at the start; the other reason was the poor quality of the DVD transfer. If ever a movie cried out for remastering, this is it: it really does look like they just transferred it from VHS. There is a commentary track with film critic Charles Chaplin, director L.Q. Jones (this was his last film directing), and John cinematographer Morrill. It makes for interesting listening.
If you like this genre, this is an essential film to add to your library. If you're not as fond of apocalypse movies, call this one a rental....more info
- Great film for its time and budget
All of the other reviews pretty much give you the lowdown on the plot, so I will stick with the core of the film. 1- Don Johnson's character is great, he does a good job, and never cops out in terms of the character's mindset. Ditto for the dog. I will say that this film has an ending that delievers, and has one of the best final lines of any film around....more info
- Good sci fi movie: "Classic"? funny world after the fall movie.
I remember hearing about it, back in the day,
but this is the first time I actually have seen it.
It reminds me of the Mad Max movies in the 80's:
probably Don Johnson's first role.
The telepathic dog thing is pretty good.
It took mankind 10000 years to build any civilization,
and as Einstein once predicted,
it was pretty much all gone in five days.
We seem very much bent on a future much like this;
even the dates are close; 2008 WW IV....
- A Cult Classic
"A Boy and His Dog" (1975) is science-fiction satire based on a well-known Harlan Ellison story. The movie takes us on the adventures of a young scavenger, Vic, (a VERY young Don Johnson) and his intelligent, telepathic dog, Blood, in post-apocalyptic Arizona. Blood and Vic need each other to survive, to find food for both and the girls for Vic. Blood is always hungry, and Vic always wants a woman. That's the common through-line of the entire movie, and it drives Vic to do things he might not normally do. Or might he? This low tech, well-paced film is dark and funny, making it deserving of its cult status. ...more info
- Post-Apocalyptic Classic
Though not precisely true to the Harlan Ellison story, the film A Boy and His Dog does capture the spirit of the science fiction classic. A very young Don Johnson plays the part of the Boy. Fans of Mad Max, The Postman, and A Canticle for Liebowitz will enjoy this cult classic....more info
- This has to be the absolute worst film ever!
I had to watch this movie for a school project, and I have to say; Its bad. The story it's self isn't to terrible, but it does needs some work. Everything else in the movie,whether its the acing or what ever, is however awful. I don't want to sound like a reluctant student trying to trash a film, but after watching the movie; I felt like I had wasted two hours of my life. I especially didn't like the ending when the two main characters show how much they care for each other. Come-on would anyone in their right mind, feed their dog, their friend; just because they have a love-hate relation ship with the K9? I wouldnt....more info
- Yeah Baby
I haven't seen this movie in about 20 years and I still remember it to this day, it saved my life (and my dog).
I was dating a little wanna be rich girl years ago when she crossed the line. I was going to move in with her and she wanted me to put my dog "down" as she already had a dog and we didn't need two. Well, great sex is hard to give up, BUT, when it comes to a boy and his dog, eventually the spinal fluids take over.
And believe it or not, that pretty much sums up this movie....
I wonder where that girl is today. I also wonder how many have traded their faithful pups for manipulating woman?
Stand by your dog men.....he's good for ya...
- Man's best (only?) friend
It's the future once again and the world has obliterated itself through nuclear destruction (once again.) Don't despair! This film is really a "buddy" picture about two characters, Vic and Blood, surviving in a post nuclear world. The only thing is, Blood is a telepathic dog and the "brains" of the operation. Vic provides the brawn and the two roam the desert wasteland, a veritable land of opportunity for those with enough greed and power (some things never change), in search of food and for the less evolved, women. It is this all-too-human weakness for sex that ends up tearing Vic away from the only thing in this world a boy can trust . . . his dog! Vic is lured to an underground world of smiling faces, bright colors, and pretty girls but "the good life" is a fraud. Jason Robards delivers an excellent performance as the leader of this underworld. This film inspired countless copies (Mad Max) over the years and the last line of the film has become deservedly famous in cult movie lore....more info
- Bizarre, blackly comedic, fun
In the annals of low budget, post apocalyptic science fiction, you would be hard pressed to find a film stranger than director L.Q. Jones's cinematic adaptation of Harlan Ellison's "A Boy and His Dog." Here is a film that fairly screams cult classic despite its rather unexceptional backstory. In the year 2024 (or thereabouts), humanity teeters on the brink of ultimate destruction. Not one but two nuclear conflagrations have reduced most of the planet's denizens to scruffy, underfed ruffians. Why did the wars in this movie occur? Who knows? During the Cold War we all expected a nuclear exchange to break out any day over any number of reasons. Perhaps the Soviet Union would invade Western Europe. Maybe the United States and Russia would exchange volleys seeking control of Persian Gulf oil. Even a spark in a third world nation presented humanity with the threat of utter annihilation back in those days. One could argue that the nuclear threat hasn't gone away today since both the United States and Russia still possess arsenals. Even worse, proliferation means other countries with far less self-control already have or will soon have the bomb. Whatever the reasons for nuclear war, they are far less important in this film than life afterwards.
Vic (Don Johnson) roams the blasted plains of post-apocalyptic America with his trusty pooch Blood. Interestingly and weirdly enough, the two are able to communicate through a psychic link obviously brought about by too much exposure to radiation. Boy and dog spend all of their time looking for food, a challenge in a world where supermarkets tend to lie under tons of atomically fused soil and where one must battle roving packs of pirates for a can or two of preserved fruit. More important than procuring food is Vic's desire for locating women, any women but good-looking ones are better, in order to fulfill age old desires. It is this food/female combination that forms the central tenet of Vic's relationship with Blood and vice versa. The dog can quite literally sense the presence of women in the area, much to Vic's delight, but Blood insists on food before disclosing the location of the female in question. Blood's demands frequently result in flaring tempers, heated exchanges, and elaborate negotiations, but both eventually get what they want and, more importantly, possess an extreme loyalty to one another when the chips are down. A good example comes when weird shrieking creatures arrive on the scene and Blood helps Vic escape from them as well as from a band of hostile men. It's good to have such a loyal companion in this post-apocalyptic world.
Sadly, it takes a strange series of events for Vic to learn how important Blood is to his well being. Predictably, the trouble starts with a woman, a very attractive woman by the name of Quilla June Holmes (Susanne Benton). After Blood sniffs her out for his buddy Vic, Holmes lures our young hero into what can only be described as a dystopia that would give George Orwell nightmares. It appears Vic has a very special trait highly sought after by Topeka, an underground society led by Lou Craddock (Jason Robards) and a couple of other people, and that trait is fertility. Vic's vital fluids will help this community repopulate itself, but the whole thing isn't as much fun as it sounds. First, these people are weird on a metaphysical level. The whole community strives to reproduce a vision of America, but it looks like they culled their ideas about the pre-war United States from books written in the 1950s. Marching bands and picnics form the crux of the society's activities, and people wear attire that makes them look like parodies of American regional types. Second, these people look bizarre and act in strange ways. Craddock, along with the rest of the citizens, wears this hideous white pancake makeup that is truly frightening. Loudspeakers blare a constant litany of recipes and other news announcements. Yikes.
The conclusion to the film is downbeat yet fits perfectly with the off the wall antics of the preceding ninety minutes. And everything about "A Boy and His Dog" is off the wall. You want to see a pack of pirates digging for food in the desert? A bunch of folks watching a blue movie out in the middle of nowhere? Here's your film. This is such a strange jaunt into the realms of the odd that the idea of a human communicating with a dog seems perfectly normal. Speaking of Blood, it's the same dog that played Tiger in the Brady Bunch. The person voicing this animal is a real hoot, what with the off color limericks and world weary sarcasm that dominates his discussions with Vic. For his part Don Johnson does remarkably well in a role that requires him to act opposite an animal in a believable way. It is Jason Robards, however, who steals every scene he is in as the tyrannical Lou Craddock. Everyone knows this actor was a real talent, but it's nice to see him take on such an offbeat role. I always like an actor or actress who steps outside the conventional, and Robards definitely does that here.
Extras on the disc aren't plentiful. There's a trailer, of course, that tries to play up the controversial elements of the film. The real treat is the commentary with L.Q. Jones; he discusses every element of the movie from the low budget to working with Robards. One intriguing anecdote involves the scene where Craddock eats the sandwich while talking with his associates. Jones relates with great glee how the sandwich was rotten yet Robards refused to interrupt the scene in any way to voice his displeasure. That's professionalism carried to the nth degree, wouldn't you say? "A Boy and His Dog" might not appeal to many viewers, but it's definitely worth watching for the cult film fan.
- Not Your Average Buddy Film
Long before Mad Max, Miami Vice, and Look Who's Talking Too comes a post-apocalyptic tale of an unusual partnership between a boy (played by Don Johnson) and his dog (voiced by Tim McIntire.) The dog grumbles about not getting any food while the boy grumbles about not getting any. Oh yeah, they also happen to communicate with each other telepathically. Strange? You bet!
Set in 2024 A.D. following World War IV, the pair survive by scavenging a desert wasteland for food, stealing what they can. Meanwhile, they are secretly monitored by shadowy members of an underground community who have more sinister plans in mind.
Filmed in 1975 on a low budget (the sets consist of junkyards emptied into the desert near Barstow), the picture succeeds because it is visually compelling throughout. I know people who love this film and others who hate it, but I have yet to find one person who has shut it off before watching it in its entirety. The makeup and special effects are deliberately awful, adding to the cheese factor, and the ending doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for something offbeat, you can't go wrong here....more info
- Charming, weird, but worth the visit
It's hard to describe this movie. But, it has to be seen (and the last line IS the movie) to be appreciated. Words don't do it justice; just see it. You will either love it or hate it. And you'll never forget it....more info
- Rite of Passage but with caveats
I absolutely love this movie. Saw it years ago and finally had to get a copy. Be warned - it's wierd, kinky and just downright offensive for many. It's not the thing you want to watch with your wife - well, my wife. My son found it boring (23). It's the kind of movie you have to watch to the end. If you decide on a movie in the first 30 minutes, you should probably pass.
But if you like post-diaster worlds with strange twists and a really bizzare ending, give it a try....more info
- Addendum to the former reviews
Though I can not give a better review of "A Boy and His Dog" than some of those already posted, I would like to add a note about collecting the works of L. Q. Jones. It is still rather hard for me to believe that he directed this movie (introducing Don Johson) the same year that I became aware of his talent as an actor. If you value a movie collection that is varied and interesting, look for the name L. Q. Jones. He is the "Renaissance Man" of 20th Century, Hollywood....more info
- A one-of-a-kind cult classic
"A Boy And His Dog" is definately a cult classic, but defies being more neatly categorized beyond that genre. It's been labeled alternately and collectively as being "misogynistic", "the greatest Science Fiction movie ever made", "black comedy", and as a "cross between George Orwell and Mel Brooks" (the last description is my personal favorite), to list a few. Although it is true that the film is rather misogynistic, I don't find this a fault; the film is supposed to be portraying a terrible, possible future reality. And it may not be nice, folks.
"A Boy And His Dog" was directed by L.Q. Jones, a character bit actor favored by Sam Peckinpah for his westerns, and is based on the novella of the same name by Sci-Fi legend Harlan Ellison (who by all accounts loved the film version).
It takes place in the year 2024, after WWIV has ravaged the earth's civilization, rendering it into a post-apocalyptic desert, where humans have become complete scavengers. A very young, relatively unknown Don Johnson (way before his days in TV's "Miami Vice") stars as Vic, a young "solo" as the loners are called, trying to stay alive in this post-atomic desert of a world. Veteran actor Jason Robards appears in a small part, as a favor to Jones. Vic's companion, friend and mentor is a sheepdog named Blood. The dog, named Tiger in real life, was a very popular animal actor of the times, an extremely well-trained and appealing performer, and in fact was the family dog on the TV show "The Brady Bunch."
Vic and Blood share a special bond, and the two communicate telepathically.
Don't laugh at that last remark; it's done very well in the film.
An element that could have ruined the film if not done carefully is, however, handled perfectly. Although it was suggested that animation be used to make it appear as if the dog's mouth is moving, thankfully none was used, and Tiger's masterful "acting", combined with the scruffy, gravelly, world-weary, old-west "voice" provided by Tim McIntire makes for some of the best acting in the film, and some of the best lines. Blood literally sniffs out women for Vic to have sex with, helps Vic be on the lookout for other packs of scavengers trying to kill him and each other in the ongoing fight over food and women, and Vic does the shooting, and the foraging for food. In addition the two are best friends, with Blood being the most intelligent by far. It seems that in the future, people have become the real animals.
The elements of caustically dark humor and dry dialogue (the dog gets the best lines) helps carry the film. And while this is in no way "the best Science Fiction movie ever made", in my opinion, it's certainly a great one, along with others of its time such as "Soylent Green". There are practically no special effects; the scenery and sets are cheap and minimalist, letting the characters and script tell the story, for the most part. This isn't a happy-happy-joy-joy overly-laden with special effects film like many of the ones made these days.
In case this whole scenario seems reminiscent of another film, "Mad Max", it's true that "A Boy And His Dog" inspired "Mad Max". I myself find this film to be superior, even if, and maybe in spite of, the fact that it is far less politically correct.
WARNING: SPOILER FOLLOWS!
When Vic conveniently meets a young (and suspiciously clean and friendly) woman named Quilla June (portrayed by Susanne Benton), she pulls him in and the lure of frequent sex with her blinds him to Blood's warnings. So when Quilla June disappears Vic follows her to her underground community of Topeka, where he finds a warped reality of futuristic country living, combined with creepy clown makeup and aw-shucks country clothing. Its trio of self-anointed rulers is called The Committee, (this is where Jason Robards comes in), and they have a plan in mind for the young, able-bodied Vic. This all makes for a riveting scenario that's part "Stepford Wives", part "Hee-Haw", and more than a pinch of "The Twilight Zone". Beyond this, I will say no more except that the ending of the film is one of the best parts of the entire movie.
- Boy plus dog equals sci fi cult classic!
This movie is based on the Harlan Ellison novella of the same name. The story was good, but I think the movie adaptation gives it a whole new life which has held up since the movie was made back in '75. Johnson is perfectly believable in his role and the sets were great... especially the stark difference from above ground to below. And the final line of the movie... Harlan may not of wrote it, but it has still become a classic!! I highly recommend to anyone wanting to expand their horizons with a bit of dark humor! ...more info
- Nothing Is More Important to a Boy than His Dog
It's the year 2024, and most of the Earth's nations have been demolished by yet another world war (the latest being WWIV). In this postapocalyptic world, slow-witted survivor Vic (Don Johnson) forages through the ruins for food and women with the help of his faithful dog, Blood (voiced by Tim McIntire), with whom he is able to communicate telepathically. Blood, more intelligent and more cultured than his young "master," often gets impatient with Vic's immature behavior and lack of interest in his attempts to educate the boy, but he nonetheless loves Vic and sticks with him to help him survive. And after several minor adventures and one huge misadventure, Vic does learn one incontestable actuality: Nothing is more important to a boy than his dog.
Based on an award-winning novella by the curmudgeonly SF writer Harlan Ellison, A BOY AND HIS DOG was adapted and directed by character actor L.Q. Jones and co-produced by Jones and Alvy Moore (the latter probably best known for his portrayal of scatterbrained Hank Kimball on TV's GREEN ACRES). While Ellison has said many times publicly that the film is the most faithful adaptation of any of his works, he has nonetheless complained vehemently about some of Jones' "adjustments"--most notably the minor addition of some gross or vulgar dialogue--and tried unsuccessfully to get them changed. Whether or not Ellison's complaints have merit, A BOY AND HIS DOG has come to be regarded as a science-fiction classic, its popularity undoubtedly due to its likeable characters who, despite their constant bickering and individual quirks, are redeemed by their committed friendship and their sarcastically humorous approach to survival.
The performances in A BOY AND HIS DOG are top-notch. Johnson convincingly portrays Vic as a filthy scavenger who, in spite of his dire situation, still manages to remain a decent human being at the core. Tim McIntire's vocal characterization of Blood embodies Ellison's original concept of a mutant pooch with a caustic ego that is balanced with just the right amount of off-beat humanity, and this portrayal is enhanced further by the outstanding on-screen performance of Tiger, the canine thespian that portrayed the family pet on TV's THE BRADY BUNCH. In his supporting role as the governor of a subterranean dystopia, Jason Robards is delightfully smarmy. And when beautiful Susanne Benton bares her ample "talents" on the screen, that's a lot of fun watch, too.
With A BOY AND HIS DOG, Jones' intention is not to make deep socio-political innuendos or to meet the average action-fan's prosaic expectations, and sentimentality is obviously far from his mind. Instead of serving up a dull postapocalyptic survival-of-the-fittest thriller or a clich¨¦ love-among-the-ruins drama, Jones gives us a wry black comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously. His direction is tight, his staging often inventive, and the dialogue--while MOSTLY lifted directly from Ellison's story--is often sharply sardonic and frequently witty. With this AND the outstanding performances he elicits from his cast, Jones creates a realistic world of future desolation, but he peoples it with central characters that learn to deal with the nightmare while still maintaining their humanity...and a sense of humor.
Several DVD editions of A BOY AND HIS DOG have been available over the past few years, and all have delivered good letterbox widescreen digital transfers. The current offering from First Run Features is an anamorphic widescreen version, and it also contains an interesting feature commentary and theatrical trailers.
All in all, A BOY AND HIS DOG is a wonderful interpretation of a classic SF novella, and this DVD will make a great entry in the film collections of SF fans who love quirky non-mainstream films....more info
- A title
Pretty much what you'd expect from a mid-70's sci-fi movie as far as production and effects go. Some of it is a bit silly, but the post-apocalyptic world is a bit darker and harsher than most "hopeful" films of the genre and period. Obviously they were trying to push the limits of acceptable, and occasionally taste. Still, one can't help but wonder if the whole movie was little more than a set-up for the somewhat morbid closing joke... ...more info
- As good as Dr. Strange Love and BladeRunner
The title for the review speaks volumes: in my opinion this as good as the above listed SciFi films. This is not the Don of Miami vice or the Alvy Moore of Green Acres or the Jason Robards of Once Upon a Time in the West. LQ Jones, Dodo McQueen, writes a suberb script. It's the vision of the future none of us wants, but some of us fear. This film is unique and a must have for any Cult Film aficionado....more info
- Memorable low-budget flick
This is an excellent, highly rewatchable movie which presents two starkly different worlds - both dystopias - of a post-apocalyptic America. The harsh desert-like land, where howling monsters lurk in the debris and an intelligent dog and his boy roam seeking out women to rape and food. Then there is the nightmarish underground white middle-class world where barbershop quartets mix in artificially lit parks with huge robot security men in oversized breeks, and residents are sent to the 'farm' to die in a fashion decreed by the elders (him...heart attack...her....machinery accident). And there is much much more...
This is a truly unique film - I'd say the closest comparisons might be 1984 or Clockwork Orange. It also has some startling moments and leaves you with so much (perhaps too much) to think about in just one movie.
It is definitely not to everyones' tastes - especially the film's treatment of women and the sick humour which will turn some off - but the overall result is a film with too many facets to mention in just a few paragraphs. If you are into cult movies and like to take some time rewatching films, then this is an excellent movie to get....more info
- I can see why this is a cult classic!
Imagine you never ever heard of this movie. If someone were to ask "Have you ever seen A Boy And His Dog?", what image would come to your mind? You imagine a little boy playing with his faithful dog, right?
Well, whether you would or not, that was definitely me. All I heard about this movie was that it was set during a time when the Earth was ravaged and that the movie was about a hungry/horny boy with his faithful dog who complains about his libido all the time.
What came to my mind was an image of a 13-14 year old boy and a dog wandering around the desert looking for something to do. Of course, if I had known this movie got an "R" rating, a more accurate image would have come to my head.
I was very surprised by this movie. Aside from the fact that the movie shows pornography and rape, it also portrayed the main character as some kind of a sex addict. Since I had originally thought the movie had a "PG" rating, I didn't even think it had any of these.
I found myself stumbling upon a very strange movie, indeed. You could clearly see that this is from a non-PC time because aside from the fact that it shows women as sex objects, it also shows the main character choosing his dog over a woman that claims "she loves him". Now, aside from that, he does something that women today would consider VERY sexist. I thought it was cool as hell, but hey, that's me.
Anyway, a number of things got me confused about this movie. Now, of course there would be very little people, but why are there so much less women? Did the men have some sort of gene that allowed them to survive nuclear war better? Aside from that, why did they kill women so frivolously if women were in short supply? None of it seems to make any sense to me. The thing that really hit me, though, was the lack of commitment in EVERYONE. Considering the human race seemed to be on the verge of extinction if something wasn't done fast, why were so little committed to having children? Food didn't seem to be a factor since one scene showed them giving away food in order to see a pornography movie. Was wondering the desert with your pals digging up old cans of food so much fun that you didn't want to bother having children to make sure your species don't go extinct?
Of course, that is just the gist of it. There seems to be A LOT of unexplained or unplausible stuff in this movie, but then again, you're probably not watching this movie for the plausibility.
Despite the strangeness, I actually like this movie. It was fun seeing the teen kid argue with his dog about women. It certainly was touching to see how loyal they are to each other. How many guys today would give up a woman for their dog? Even if the woman was a conniving wench and the dog was loyal beyoung belief? Not many, I bet.
Overall, I consider this movie to be excellent! Pick it up if you can. It's very good....more info
