An okay presentation of an okay picture featuring a characteristically appealing Jeff Bridges performance.

Audience Reviews for A Dog Year

Jeff Bridges plays an author who we get to know over a period of a year. We don't know a lot about his background going in, but it's clear that he his not exactly a people person. He adopts a border collie...and while trying to understand the dog, he starts to get a better grip on his own life. Nothing earth shattering here, just a nice decent movie.

Cute film, but could have been much better. I was surprised by the short running time for the movie. I thought it could have been 15 or 20 minutes longer. It needed a rewrite. It isn't as good as films like Marley and Me and Turner and Hootch. Jeff Bridges does an ok job in the film.

I love movies involving dogs and animals, but somehow this one wasn't as great as I anticipated. It seemed too short and didn't get very involved. I love the dogs in it though - they are adorable!
