With World War I looming, Robert Conroy, a young Army private, adopts a stray, stump-tailed terrier. Conroy names his new friend Stubby and gives him a home, a family, and a chance to embark on the adventure that would define a century.

  • Delivered by rudimentary computer animation... Still, the central conceit is compelling.

  • Hats off to the chutzpah of the filmmakers behind this thoughtful if somewhat plodding effort, which will appeal largely to young (or young-at-heart) dog lovers cum budding war historians - not exactly a massive demographic.

    August 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I'm glad to report that I not only saw the tale of a soldier and his loyal pooch through to the end; at one point, I used a shirt cuff to blot away the wet eyes.

    April 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • By the moment when George S. Patton shows up and perches a proud Stubby atop his tank as the battle draws to a close, I had long surrendered.

    April 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • At 75 minutes, the resulting feature is the definition of slight, but just winsome and optimistic enough to justify itself.

  • [T]he film is sufficiently intelligent and entertaining to engage most grown-ups and, no kidding, fascinate history buffs.
