An underpowered, white-bread sermon on the importance of family and faith.
It is a sweet look at a wounded family and how a dog brings them together.
Cut-rate faith-based tale of a dog that just HAS to be a family's guardian angel makes for grim going.
It's a dramatic start for a film that means well, but can't quite make its pieces fit the story it wants to tell.
Faith-based family drama could distress dog lovers.
A family's love for their pet pooch is reciprocated mightily in writer-director Mitch Davis' The Stray, a movie with a gentle spirit and tone shifts that go all over the place.
Offered as a warm-hearted dog yarn, this gentle but tendentious fact-based family drama goes astray into agitprop for family and Christian values.
The desire to tug at your heartstrings starts to feel desperate after a while. The Stray doesn't just want to make you cry, it wants to reach right into your eye sockets and squeeze your tear ducts until there's not an ounce of moisture left.
This family friendly movie shows with beautiful Colorado backgrounds how a 57-varieties mutt saves a man's life and possibly his marriage.
Maybe I am just a sucker for a heartwarming family film featuring a dog, but I enjoyed this. I felt it had more heart in it than major Hollywood offerings. Even if the story itself goes astray from time to time and doesn't meet the initial heights of the opening. If you love your furry family then you can definitely relate to this.
The Stray attempts to recycle rehashed true stories of yesteryear and purposely attends to fail at creativity to solve the film's biggest problems. I bet the director just wanted to get this film out of the way so much that he had pressure built into him, but he attends to ignore, as what I just said before, the film's biggest problems by throwing creativity into the trash and just throw in a generic plot featuring a dog that can change everything. Definitely attempting not to follow the basic formula used in A Dog's Purpose, a movie featuring a dog that was also released in 2017, and Max, another movie featuring a dog but was released in 2015. Not worth seeing unless you love rehashed true stories.
