Top Dog or Gone to the Dogs?
There’s been a fair few films out this year with Dogs central to the story. There was the fantastic Isle Of Dogs, and the not so great Showdogs as well as Patrick and there’s probably more I can’t remember off the top of my head.
So here comes a film which is essentially Love Actually, set in the Summer, with dogs bringing people together instead of kids.
Ensemble cast, coincidences like you have never seen, and clear-from-the-outset story arcs which you can pick up a mile away.
Despite it being very predictable, it’s pretty heartwarming in parts. Once again I was bawling my eyes out like I was at the end of Mamma Mia 2.
No-one really delivers standout performances. Everyone is just…well…good. Everyone kinda plays themselves, without stretching too much as actors.
Wait until it’s on TV or some streaming service to watch…but give it a watch. It’s better than I thought it would be.
