A Dog's Way Home

This follow-up to the book/movie A Dog's Purpose could be the most emotionally manipulative tearjerker ever conceived. Seems that an impossibly cute puppy named Bella is adopted by a kindly young man (Jonah Hauer-King) and is put to work as an emotional support animal for people in hospitals. But when she becomes separated from her owner, she must embark on a 400-mile journey to get home. Along the way, she comforts homeless veterans, rescues people from avalanches and performs all sorts of miraculous deeds. Bryce Dallas Howard provides the cutesy voice of the dog, who narrates the film in voice-over. Humor columnist W. Bruce Cameron (8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter) wrote a whole bunch of other dog books, so be prepared for more. 96 minutes PG.
