Do you like furry animals and seeing things that will whack your emotions like a piñata? Well, if so, the movie A Dog’s Purpose is perfect for you. It’s all about a dog that has to endure several different lives just to figure one thing out…what is a dog’s purpose?

This movie received a 75% from rotten tomatoes and a 4.2/10 from IMDb. As far as where I stand on the spectrum, I really enjoyed the cuteness aspect of the movie, but the plot wasn’t going anywhere for a while. If you’re concerned about taking your kids to see A Dog’s Purpose, for the most part, it is a totally child-friendly movie except for a scene when a person gets punched in the face, and brief alcohol use. The rest is pretty much “awww’s” and then of course after the movie, begging your parents for a dog.

But, there is a dark side to this adorable movie. A week before the movie came out, a video was uploaded on TMZ showing a trainer allegedly forcing his dog into a pool against his will. This video immediately sparked controversy and an outcry from dog lovers all over the world. Due to this, ratings for the movie were affected because many people boycotted against it and encouraged others to do the same.
