A Dog's Way Home may not quite be a family-friendly animal drama fan's best friend, but this canine adventure is no less heartwarming for its familiarity.

There's not much variation on the old themes here. What's new is the film's definition of community and family.

Cameron's tale grossly oversimplifies complex issues... to the point that it reduces much of the film's social justice message to meme-ready, empty-headed pap.

When the story lags, these are the flaws that pester, and even the cute factor of "A Dog's Way Home" can't obscure its narrative weaknesses.

Heartwarming, mildly funny, and occasionally thrilling without ever being anything more than just fine.

A good dog movie with its heart in the right place.

Although it might be a stretch to categorize this as a movie, "A Dog's Way Home" is harmless enough and a nice little adventure that's fit for the whole family. But you might want to have the tissues ready.
