MY DOG SKIP (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Stars ììì

My Dog Skip—
classic, low budget film—shows the early talents of Frankie Muniz as well as the established talents of Kevin Bacon, Luke Wilson and Diane Lane.  Despite its presentation, the story is heartfelt, enchanting, and well played by all actors. This becomes a good family watch.

In World War II Mississippi, a wise mother, Ellen Morris (Diane Lane), acts against advice and presents her nine-year-old son, Willie Morris (Frankie Muniz), with a brand new puppy to offset the loss of an older friend, Dink Jenkins (Luke Wilson) who goes to war. Willie Morris discovers four legs can be better than two when it comes to establishing long-term friendships.
