    I absolutely love the emotional journey that Bailey takes in this film! Bailey's sense of humor shines throughout the film as he tries to make sense of the actions of his various owners and his meaning in life. He balances his purpose with his love for bacon and all disgusting smells. A Dog's Journey continues with the story of Bailey and the humans in his life. His relationship continues with Ethan on the farm until Ethan gives him a new purpose which is to protect Ethan's granddaughter, C. J. Bailey goes through many changes and continues to be puzzled by humans. He protects C. J. at any cost from the time she is a toddler through her adult experiences. Some of my favorite scenes are those where he deliberately misbehaves or manipulates to get rid of her boyfriend Barry. Bailey gathers people into his human packs and eliminates others that don't belong. Bailey's voice is portrayed by Josh Gad who has a brilliant sense of comedic timing and he adds so much humor and depth to Bailey's character. W. Bruce Cameron who wrote the book, also worked on the screenplay. Dennis Quaid returns to the role of Ethan and the movie just wouldn't be the same without him. Casting is by John Papsidera and the entire cast is talented and works together seamlessly in their humorous and very touching roles under the guidance of Director Gail Mancuso. The message of this film is to find meaning in your life experiences. In all of Bailey's lives he learns things which fulfill his purpose and allow him to find meaning in his actions with his humans. It is an emotional roller coaster filled with laughter, joy, love, tears and bacon. I rate this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 18, but of course adults will definitely enjoy it too. Reviewed by Selene W., KIDS FIRST! Film Critics.

    if you are a dog lover, you will love this. if you aren't, you won't. it's sappy, quite unrealistic, but who cares. it's entertaining and sweet.

    If only watching a cute dog for 90 minutes was enough to recommend a film. Interestingly enough, I think that is what the filmmakers count on. Yes the dogs are cute, and yes they are fun to watch, but the story meanders around and never really goes anywhere. Of course it tugs on the heartstrings quite a bit.

    And here we are again sniffing and wiping our tears every time Bailey has to go. The sequel to 2017's A Dog's Purpose is more or less the same in terms of plot and predictability but who cares when the movie is this heartwarming and sweet. A Dog's Journey is just as good with characters worth rooting for and a dog that makes us laugh and cry thanks to Josh Gad's voice acting.
