My review for “Dog” will come out in a couple of weeks in St Anthony Messenger, but I wanted to let you know that it is an entertaining and inspiring film, with mature themes. And that’s ok. It is just that PTSD (Lulu the dog) and former Ranger Briggs (Channing Tatum) and TBI (traumatic brain injury) require some explanation for younger readers. War, especially one that didn’t need to happen, has lasting consequences for both human and canine soldiers. There are some other mature themes as well.
And anyone who has had a medium to large puppy will get a good laugh and commiserate with Briggs.
“Dog” opens today. It is predictable in many ways but entertaining, feel-good, and it has a BK rating (bring Kleenex.)
