In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same.
The scenes where "Ellie" jumps off the bridge into the water to save the girl and the diner Ethan and Hannah go to after the football game where Ethan's dad is drunk are both filmed in Lockport, Manitoba. See more »
Ethan is shown reading captain America which was first published by Marvel comics in 1964 . And later a reference to the Cuban missile crisis which occurred in 1962. See more »
I had a purpose, I was needed again and again and again. With each new life I was learning a new lesson.

Surprised by the low rating- it was an excellent movie
Let me state up front that compared to "other movies" this movie is not a 10 but for what I expected it to be -a kid friendly, fun-loving movie that is relatively straightforward- it gets a 10. My 8 yr old son and 10 yr old daughter loved it, and so did I. It was sweet and heartfelt.
I cried each time the dog became another dog, and I don't think I am that sensitive.
In fact, this movie reminds me a bit of look who's talking, in the mind of a baby but in this movie, in the mind of a dog. It may feel realistic for some and not for others but who cares, it is a movie to make you smile and it is definitely not reality.
