Audience Reviews for Lassie Come Home
Lassie Come Home? No, Lassie please leave! That's the real problem in this movie, Lassie wont stay away. The family is too poor to keep the dog, so they sell it, but it keeps coming back home. This really got on my nerves, not only that , but the scenes with Lassie fighting bears in the woods so he could get back home were so crazy and ridiculous that I hated this movie. I did like Roddy McDowall in the movie, though, he was good, so I gave the movie more stars than it deserved.
If you don't like this movie you better see the wizard about a heart.
A dog who was sold for financial reasons treks across the English countryside to reunite with his best friend and master played by a young Roddy McDowell. If that isn't loyalty, I don't know what is.
